Remember kids, the naked human form is unnatural and shameful.

This may be hard to believe, but when the guy was mooning the kid? That was probably just the guy being an ass. He wasn't trying to set the kid up for an "off-line meeting".

Sorry, he's obviously a depraved filthy sex pervert, and I won't be happy until he's been locked up at public expense for thirty years. Everyone else that knows him should be GPS tracked.

this and this, if my kid gets involved in online games that have webcam features (or online anything involving webcam features in general) I'll teach them to not take it as such a huge overblown deal and to respond to such incidents with remarks like "geez dude, if its that cold in your mom's basement turn on the heat"

This webcam aspect of video games is the point where I'm really not able to relate. I couldn't even deal with the headset action on the old Xbox, and it only took a few raids on Vent before I knew that I can't deal with that kind of personal interaction in a stupid video game, like WoW.

I'm officially too old for this stuff cuz I don't understand the appeal or need for the video/audio interaction with other people in these games. Hell, I ditched WoW so I could play Defender and Tempest, and video game life couldn't be better for me!

I know two people that own one but someone is buying them as I went to about 5 different stores and every single one only has the 40 Gb no one has the 80 or the 60 its annoying. I had to buy mine from ebay, we'll see how that goes...

Ever have a bunch of friends over to play Mario Kart Double Dash or Super Smash Bros Melee? Sure, in person playing with other people is a much different experience than playing with people as just disembodied voices coming out of a headset that you relate to particular pixels and polygons on screen, but gaming of any kind (video games, sports, etc.) is an inherently social outlet. The video/audio is a natural aspect of games in a more digital age.

Just rtfa and seriously we are complaining that MS and Sony are not babysitting their kids? If you haven't realized by now, the internet is unrated. Even if there was a monitoring device the only thing it would do is prevent him from doing it again, won't stop him the first time...

How is it putting your kid at risk and why would you as a parent let a device take your picture and send it to someone over the internet in the first place? Is it a secret webcam? I see that the idiot would still show his picture but how is this dangerous to a kid?

In some cases, yes it is. In fact, most of those cases are probably people who sit in front of xbox all day. I doubt many of them are models...

I came here to post the ESRB notice but was beaten to it, twice. It's not Sony's or EA's fault. The parents should know that the online experience is a free for all, and that some people just like to be douche's. I doubt this kid is scarred for life. Also it's not like there's a secret webcam taking pictures of kids. This is not the first game to have this feature, and I doubt it will be the last.

Exactly. If I wanted to interact with other people I wouldn't play video games to begin with :D

Just don't connect a webcam?
And by assumption the feature should have an OFF switch...

Yes! They make you look fat.

This article and half of the responses are the stupidest things I have ever read. EVAR!1!11

Yes the dude should be banned from online play, Sony should find (unless they already have) a way to do that. The kid or his parents should be able to submit the image that this guy sent through the internet from his playstation to Sony, and Sony should ban the machine from the network. I believe that the chips in the machines each have a unique serial/id number in its ROM.

Very small chance the guy is a sexual predator or deviant, just a vulgar dipwad that thought that this was the most hilarious thing ever. About every third guy I've met would think this was really funny if they had thought of it, and every sixth guy I know would probably do it. If he is a sexual predator, this is the worst scheme I have ever heard of.

Sounds like a fruit basket to me!

My dad put this on our computer back in '92 when we first got online.

Took me about 15 minutes to get around it.

2008-03-08 10:05:08 AM
Sorry, but that's just plain funny. I'm pretty sure the dude didn't moon the camera because he wanted to be the catcher.

2008-03-08 10:36:33 AM
Yeah, that webcam function...it has on/off functionality for receiving pics. There's actually an option that's "Friends only" for webcam pics...at least on 360. Can't say for sure that option is available on the PS3 edition, but it's certainly able to be turned off.

OK, let me get this straight. The game console snaps a picture when you crash to send to the other person. To get a picture as described you would need to be playing naked and backwards and bent over. Either it was a set up, the kid is covering up because the parents found the picture or the network has bad latency.

I suspect it was a canned shot the other person used. Kind of a gootse avatar...

What parent would allow a game console to snap pictures of their child and send it with out with no "Are you Sure?" prompt.

/why does the real spelling of mrgootse come up as a spell check option?
 
2008-03-08 10:43:00 AM
And this is why I don't play games online. Too many immature douchenozzles.And there's too many games where all the focus is on online and the single player sucks balls.

Mooning someone is not trying to lure them in to some pedophile dungeon........pull your head out of your ass you nanny-state farks.

When will someone make a 18+ only console. Sure, it would bomb and wouldn't get any support from software developers, but at least we could prevent crap like this from happening every other week.

Yes, I know it wouldn't work since people complain about kids playing games that are rated 'M' all the time, but I'm really sick of all this crap.

Okay, the game does the same thing on the XBOX360.

And the idiot who gave a 10 year old an unsupervised web cam is a fool. A 10 year old's online experience needs to be monitored because there are a lot of whackos and idiots out there.
