If You Pirate ‘The Sims 4,’ YOU’LL GET CENSORED IN-GAME!

Anyone Who Pirates The Sims 4 Is In For A SurpriseSo, if you were one of the folks who decided to illegally download a torrent of The Sims 4, then you certainly discovered something completely unexpected: complete and utter censorship — via pixelation — of most of the newly-released game.  Now, those familiar with The Sims are aware of the game normally pixelating your Sims when they are buck-naked (such as taking a bath, going number one or number two, you get the idea).  According to various online reports, pirated copies of the game make ALL Sims PERMANENTLY pixellated, presenting the entire game in a goofy, censored look, a’la the above image from nihwtf.

But this is the funny part: some of those pirates are trying to find fixes to this bug and trying to pretend and play it off as “some random glitch” that so-innocently happened to them. But OF COURSE they think it’s a random glitch, since the pirates have no clue that this bug occurs because they illegally torrented the game.  But some people know what’s really going on, as guides have been popping up to show people how to fix the glitch if you downloaded the game illegally, as well as brand, spanking new torrents which claim to fix the pixelation issue, such as:

Truth be told, it IS possible that this glitch could have happened to people actually bought the game, though the pirates readily admit this happened to them on their torrented copy of the game. So hilarious…like what happens when you pirate Game Dev Tycoon and when that guy who pirated Skullgirls complained to the developer…
