Earlier this morning we received a request from SCEE to remove any nude images of Ellen Page that we may have posted. Fortunately for us, we just linked to the images, so instead we just removed the link. The images were leaked from a Beyond: Two Souls review code running on a dev kit.
It seems as something serious is going down at Sony Computers' headquarters. If a leak like this would happen in the film industry, you can almost count on legal actions to be taken. But in this instance Ellen Page is not really nude, it is just a graphic rendering of her body in the nude -- very realistic, nonetheless.
This is not the first time Quantic Dream have included full frontal-nudity in their video games. The protagonist of Heavy Rain, Madison, was also stark naked in a scene or two. But Quantic Dream are now dealing with an A-list actress, Ellen Page, so things could get a bit ugly.
It could be that Sony are just looking trying do a little bit of damage control -- but let's not completely write off a potential lawsuit between Ellen Page, Quantic Dream, and Sony Computer Entertainment. If you were Ellen Page, would you sue?
Update: Confirmed that images requested and related to be removed for "Legal Reasons". Ellen Page is most likely threatening Sony/Quantic Dream with a lawsuit.
