Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 is a famous online game that has attracted different emotions from people all over the US. The game might appeal to a particular section of people, may be the young but it faces substantial resistance from feminists and human rights activists among others. What is the game all about? The players are allowed to play volleyball as women dressed in flimsy outfits. The publisher fears that the US audience among other nations in the West will not like the way the game reflects women.
How Does the Game Look Like?
The game is exciting and has some appealing features. However, it might not see the light of the day in the US market. It is expected that human rights groups, dedicated feminists, religionists and older people, might label Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 as obscene. Lately, the game publisher installed additional features, which are a bit controversial. They include a sun-tanning system, which is meant to change the skin tone of the player, whenever they want. There are also “butt fights”. It is only by playing the game will you understand what this means. However, the term does not sound innocent or within the “morally right jurisdiction”.
The aforementioned features, can make us understand why the publisher, fears that the market might reject the game. Besides, the voluptuous volleyball players are allowed to dress in any outfit they deem necessary. Some of the outfits leave off some of the women’s parts. Parents, activists and other stakeholders in the society may not take this lightly. This is because, apart from depicting women in the wrong way, it might expose young children to obscenities.
So What is the Odd with the Game?
Are the fears substantial? The publisher had explained earlier on Facebook that they will not be releasing the game to Western countries, since they fear that the audience may reject it on the grounds of sexism. Therefore, the franchise will be released in Japan, through Play station 4 and PS Vita. They have not announced other places where they intend to launch Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 but we hope that it will be released in other places where there are no strict regulations. It is unfortunate that such as an erotic game will be inaccessible in the US.
Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 is an exciting game. That is the bottom line and it may receive criticism but does not make it any bad.
