Did you expect SEGA to just say "come hither my children your ERP is allowed"? If so to expect a corporation to say that is ridiculous.
Every online game you play they can go into your DMs, FFXIV included (since this game seems to be brought up constantly i'm going to emphasize on it).
But anyway, it's laughable that people thought a large corporation would encourage on their MMO to ERP. Really shows just the priorities of the "muh censorship" crowd.
