After Outcry, Sony Alters God of War: Ascension "Bros Before Hos" Trophy

Sony Santa Monica said today that it has changed the name of a Trophy in God of War: Ascension, which drew criticism for misogyny.

The original Trophy in the game was entitled "Bros Before Hos." It was earned in the game after Kratos brutally beats a female Fury. Many, including Adam Sessler, had criticized the Trophy as misogynistic and for promoting violence against women.

Now, Joystiq is reporting that, on Tuesday, the name of the Trophy will be changed to "Bros Before Foes" in a patch update to Ascension.

Here's the statement released by Sony Santa Monica:

"We have created and will soon push out a patch for God of War: Ascension that alters the title of one of the game Trophies. The text was offensive to some members of our community and impacted their enjoyment of the game. We are endlessly committed to ensuring that our community can fully enjoy the experiences the team has created. As such, we've addressed the feedback and amended the Trophy in question."
