Elizabeth is not on the cover because all the feminists got their knickers in a twist over her appearance.

I don't, because the video will be absolutely terrible.

There's a major issue with the way this is being discussed. People are mixing sexism within the workplace and the appearance of female character's in video games to attempt to push their own agenda on these virtual characters.

Note the giant bomb page which includes an image of DOA 5 selling character outfits, what has this at all got to do with sexism in the workplace? This is just people using the twitter thing to push their own agenda on something they don't like.

The result of such non-sense is that it is pissing off a lot of people who would normally be in agreement with their cause. If they simply left out their own personal stance on virtual characters and kept the discussion to the actual real life instances then there wouldn't be so much backlash in the comments.

There's nothing you can do to resolve this. The problem will never go away as long as the developers insist on relying on peer-to-peer servers rather than dedicated

Yeah, but they're mostly casual / facebook gamers who really don't matter to AAA publishers. Show me a statistic of how many of those 47% actually buy new AAA releases at launch.

All the more reason to cultivate the female demographic since it has the most potential for growth. To do this, developers and publishers need to encourage more women to join the ranks to help cater to this market. Obviously, rampant sexism and discrimination will discourage this from happening.

You see businesses don't act ethically out of any sense of moral obligation, they only do so if it stands to benefit them financially.

If you ran a business and your goal was about moral obligation you wouldn't be in business very long. Business are run to make a profit and making that profit is all about targetting the demographic most likely to buy your product.

This is why you don't really see beauty products, bags or jewellery targetted at men and you don't see stuff like work tools, and car products targetted at women.

"many of the assassinations you perform are pre-determined cutscenes in which Agent 47 fails to kill his target, rendering all of your work pointless."

This is... disconcerting.

They're not cutscenes unlike that muppet claims. Instead it is just like how it was in Hitman Blood Money, if you use an object to kill someone you watch hitman carry out the animation. That is what this reviewer is claiming to be 'cutscenes'.

So far the only 'source' of this apparent PC gamer review is just some person on Neogaf. Without any sign of it anywhere else online or even a basic mobile phone picture of it there's no reason to believe them at all.
