Man webcams butt in Burnout Paradise prang rage
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.
Really Come on whats the big deal
I play this game online every now and then on the ps3 and before it came out i played it online with the demo.
And all the time i have People Yelling F**k off F**k You when i take them down and if they had a web cam i would get the fingers or the middle finger and i can deffently say that we these to idiots where playing the game online (probably not there first time playing it online) they had this happen to them as well.
But to the point is this not a little bit more offence then some guy mooning them. oh wait he probably had a hairy arse well boo f***ing hoo he could shave it. No need to get the bloody police involed.
And if the game gives a snap shot feature you know someones going to get a bit crazy so what the developers knew this would happen Everyone knew this was going to happen if i had the cam i would probably go a bit crazy its a bloody toy it was a image. The kids dad is probably a horny old git lol and in his time as looked at more graphic porno images on the net but when his kid has seen someones ass he flips. The kid has probably mooned cars on back of the bus. I have in primary school im 19 now every one has been f**king mooned.
SO BIG DEAL COVER YOUR EYES NEXT TIME THE IMAGE IS ON SCREEN FOR ABOUT 3-5secs
On the internet...
people tend to be more "ballzy" because they believe they have the cover of obscurity and anonimity. While that is a fallacy it is a widely accepted fallacy so expect much more mooning but please think about the children and disconnect the camera.
Did you read the story? Twit.
The story quite clearly states genitalia were shown. That's not simply an arse, though that would certainly be an apt description for the moron who did this. I suspect that it might fit you as well since you apparently feel a need to defend the idiot.
I realize that you may be more immune to the shock value than most, but perhaps you'd like to explain how having someones huge smelly arse shoved in your face can be anything other than offensive? You mention nude beaches. Fine, there's topless ones as well. However it's all about context. You go to a nude beach or a topless beach and you know what you are going to see, you know what is expected. However you don't expect to be flashed by some twit when you're walking along the street, or looking out your window, or playing a video game. I dare say that if you wandered up to someone's home anywhere in the western world and plastered your bare buttocks against their living room window while the family were settling in to watch TV, you would at least be fined, and in some of the more draconian countries you might find a nasty sounding conviction on your record.
Tell you what, why don't you go try that? Then try your arguments about nude beaches on the judge. Go on, see how far you get.
It's not about the fear of nudity, it's about context. In the same nations that have nude beaches you can most definitely be arrested for flashing people. Just because a nation has nude/topless beaches and topless models on page three of their daily newspapers, does that mean that flashers are not committing a crime? Why not whip yourself out on the train on the way home and see what happens? Or do you fear the consequences?
As it happens in this case this idiot was almost certainly using a picture of a bare arse rather than jumping up and downing trou in time for the camera to snap a picture. There's simply not enough time to do that. Besides I know someone who took the time to obtain the PSN-ID in question, added the freak as a friend and manages to capture a takedown picture to see what the fuss was about. It's definitely a situation where the person has their PSEye focused on a picture of someone mooning. Wasn't you by any chance was it?

Welcome to the Internet, land of the goatse landmine. Never mind that you're new: we Vulture pundits -really- do love to elucidate (and possibly educate, but not necessarily).
It'll proceed like this. Sony will claim "common-common carrier" on this, and wash _its_ hands of any "content" violation. The ISPs in common will claim "common carrier" on this, and wash _their_ hands of any "content" violation. On its own, the "offended" node must somehow effect discovery process of, then sue the "offender" node - "somewhere" (E. Texas, USA??). Else... /dev/null. Until Sony goes SSL/VPN/provable-P2P with Xbox, Sony will always remain above any "content" fray using its products. (Not just Sony: All other meta-meta-content providers too.)

... Perspective said ... "3) Exposing yourself in a public or private setting to a minor actually constitutes a sex crime in most western nations. It doesn't matter whether you do it by webcam or in public, the offense will be the same."
That is simply not true. That is true only in english speaking countries, which are feared of every nudity. For you English people, how is simple nudity a sex crime anyway? So with all our European nude beaches where kids also pass by all naked people are criminals? Grow up...
