We presume you've all heard about Beyond: Two Souls by now? Be it good or bad, well, that's irrelevant. What's relevant is that a debug PS3 made it possible to see the digital model of Ellen Page nude.
That's right. Images of the digital version of the actress started popping up all over the internet as a debug PS3 allowed alteration of the camera angle in a shower scene in the video game.
Sony has taken action, issuing take-down orders to any sites that had the images on. What's funny, is that nobody really took any notice of the images existence... until Sony got involved and started yelping their orders - "very, very stupid" says boingboing.net.
The question at hand here, is why the model of Page was coded to be anatomically correct in the first place?
According to John Brownless at Fast Company "A 3-D model is usually as sexless as a wax doll underneath its clothing, because designing games is expensive, and creating assets for things players aren't going to see is a waste of time,".
Hmm... feel free to speculate below!
