For people that against the postponed for whatever reason, remember that Floyd Memorial was happening on the same date. Also remember that the event probably was planned to be done from the US. I think postponing the event is the correct choice for Sony, not just because they probably will have less coverage but mainly because the backlash they probably would receive if they still going ahead with their plan.
Yes, the event is not for US only, but again, it was probably planned to be streamed from the US like their PS5 reveal. Sure, SEGA didn't postpone anything, but at the same time, what SEGA announced was mainly for Japanese market only (the fog thing and handheld thing). If PS5 event was planned to be done in Japan or Europe, they probably won't postpone it while at the same time they can say that they support the movement.
Shanti Dope, 02 Jun 2020Literally people are mourning over the horrible disaster that happened to sir George Floyd, ob... moreHe was a criminal, and what happened to him definitely unfair and police officers supposed to be hold accoubtable for it and go to jail for long time, but violent protest and damage done for many businesses and innocent people properties destroyed by same black people community is unacceptable and same people causing those riot should be accountable and George death should not be excuse for that.
Anonymous, 03 Jun 2020The Ja__ portion of your comment is a slur remark against japanese people.Oh, about the Ja__ thing, I didn't know it was a worse slur than I thought. My apologies.

The difference is, the UK, whilst not perfect, does not operate like that. It isn't on the cards. I might as well ask what will you do when aliens land on your lawn, and are impervious to Earth weapons... Hope you have a ray gun. Seriously, this government, as appalling as it is, are not gun ho, and far less trigger happy. We thankfully don't have much civilian access to firearms, so I don't need a firearm.

What you gonna do when they ( police, military on the orders of the NWO ) come busting everyone's doors down including yours and snatching everyone up like history taught us as history repeats itself?
How are you going to protect yourself from being separated from your loved ones?

The victim had a history too, but I'm judging them both on their actions in this scenario. At the end of the day, the authorities have a culture of extreme action. Just look at the prison sentences.

However, similar things have happened to white people before such as Tony Timpa (with much less media coverage and outrage). I think this is the cause of the police having to much power. The termination horbeas corpus and qualified immunity makes police officers near untouchable. Also, this police have a code to protect each other no matter how much of a piece of crap thing they did. All this adds up to the police brutality.
Reasoning and cynical take aside, No American marketing management will say, "America is burning right now, It's the perfect time for releasing PS5".

With the above in mind, tell me why are you pointing the culprit finger at civilian access ( which is freedom by the way ) to so called " destructive weapons " when hand firearms are nowhere near as destructive as biological, nuclear and other agents for example?
People want to protect themselves, which is a natural normal human being thing to do and not everyone is going to be a karate master nor will karate or any other form of martial arts or actual physical strength combat the speed of a bullet.
Anonymous, 02 Jun 2020This is a good take, USA needs thorough institutiinal change and Black lives matter!!!I don't think it is just the institutions that are at fault. There are many areas of the culture that are less than healthy. And, I'm not even sure race was the issue here. Is there any evidence that the guy was targeted for race? He was part of what I'd describe as the under class, the authorities don't seem to treat them in the same way. In terms of what needs fixing... The list is longer than my thumbs will permit. When billions are spent on election campaigns, and prescription drug abuse is rife, and school shootings are semi regular, and so much of the culture glorifies violence, and the access to destructive weapons is so enshrined, and.... Well the list goes on. And, for clarity I'm not saying my country of birth doesn't have it's faults.

2. Don’t try to bring up opinions that could possibly turn the comments section into a chaos. Just respect their move if you don’t agree without stating something unnecessary.
Scooter, 02 Jun 2020I think they need to call the whole year of 2020 off. This is just getting worse...Call costumer support and say that 2020 has a virus.
To these kind of companies who does this for clout or unlikely, legitimate reasons, SILENCE BRAND! and do your role. Since when the Japs like Sony care about American matters?
Oh well, carry on and win the fight. All of this would have never happened if the cop never knelt down on George Floyd's neck. The man's abiding the law to not resist but these cops mistreated him like he's resisting.

[deleted post]Yeah, thanks for the support. Not sure I typed it as well as I could, it seemed to cause offence. I think that it was a salient point, as the officers will have had that info, and made judgements from there. They were presented with the situation of a large male, somewhat intoxicated, very well built, former bouncer, with form for an armed robbery. I don't think I'd have been eager to turn up to restrain him! They were not turning up to meet Carlton from the Fresh Prince. I was also trying to shut down anyone falling back on that arguement, as if he deserved it. All that said, from what I read, and that really isn't much, the chap wasn't a huge threat, in actuallity. Feel sorry for his kid, awful what happened. If I was organising the reaction, I'd have picked her up, and all their photos and home videos, and tour every police station. Humanise the victim, and show the police the consequences. Atrocities like what happened to Floyd tend to be facilitated by taking the person out of the problem, dehumanising them to the point that it is easy to treat them in a less than human capacity. Many do it, crack head, smack head, coke head, etc. Once they aren't human, it's easy to treat them as cattle.
