Here is a little censoring bit I just found out about and I see it neither in ShadowOne333's list, nor on the TCRF page.
Here is two screenshots of the Saturn Japanese Bio Hazard:
Now, here is Resident Evil: Director's Cut Dual Shock (NTSC-U):
When you shoot off zombie arms, they can be seen on the ground in the Japanese Saturn version, but in DCDS (USA), you can see the arm being shot off and flying in the air, you can see the puddle of blood where the arm is supposed to have landed, but the arm is nowhere to be found on the ground. Since the model for the arm exists, my guess is that it is programmed to be deleted as it hits the ground, but it's just a guess. Maybe I'm wrong, and instead of being censoring, this is something that was added
in the Saturn version rather than something that was deleted
in other versions ? Either way it would be nice to see the arm in RE:DC.
I don't have the courage to check every version and every region of every version to find out which versions have the arm (although some versions in some regions do have some interesting differences, for instance I vividly recall the PAL Director's Cut, or at the very least the French one, have intro in colour) but I did a quick test in the original Japanese Playstation Bio Hazard version, and not only the arm isn't present either, but I failed to see the puddle of blood. In short, from what I gather:
Bio Hazard (Japan, PSX): no puddle of blood, no arm
Resident Evil Director's Cut Dual Shock (USA, PSX): puddle of blood with no arm
Bio Hazard (Japan, Saturn): puddle of blood + arm
On a side note, does anyone know the differences between these two Playstation versions?
- Bio Hazard (Japan)
- Bio Hazard (Japan) (Rev 1)
