"There are some things we’ve pulled back from. I think where this has been an issue is with violence against women -- the team’s pulled back from some of that and assessed that a little more carefully."
-Sony Santa Monica's David Hewitt responds to post-E3 concerns that the upcoming God of War: Ascension for PlayStation 3 is promoting ultra-violence in video games. Apparently, violence against women is one of the places that the team tries to draw the line.

Hewitt also has an interesting justification for lead character Kratos' violent behavior: apparently, the team's combat designers and animators have intentionally animated Kratos so that "there’s not a lot of flourishes, there’s not any kind of enjoying the moment.

"There’s nothing about this that he’s enjoying."
