So what do you do if you get beaten at Burnout Paradise by a youngster? If 12-year-old Najee Kennedy's experience is anything to go by, you plug your webcam into your PS3 and give the victor a look at your butt.

Kennedy told New York newschannel CBS 2 HD what some guy did to him after he thrashed the man in said online PS3 game.

"I took him down and his picture just popped up," the boy claimed.

"It was a picture of the guy mooning the camera, exposing his genitals," said Najee's father, Charles Johnson.

Burnout Paradise automatically takes a webcam-shot of a player whose car has just been forced off the road or pranged.

Johnson senior learned of the incident when he saw pics of the event taken by a friend of Najee's and emailed over to the boy.

It seems likely the exposure was more a case of an opponent venting spleen than an attempt to engage with the boy in a sexual context.

However, local police said they will investigate the matter.
