Sony On Beyond Two Souls Nudity: ‘It’s Not Actually’ Ellen Page
If the tone of a statement released today is any indication, Ellen Page and Sony are very unhappy with Quantic Dream right now.
The reason: using a Playstation 3 debug unit, someone has managed to uncover a complete scene of a very naked Jodie hidden in the code of Beyond: Two Souls. We’re not including these images here, but you can see a SFW version here, and a thread about the now-removed images on reddit.
The hack revealed that a weird, out of nowhere shower scene in Beyond: Two Souls actually features very explicit nudity so detailed, it included modeling of Jodie’s vulva. The problem is that in the release version of the game, during the scene in question Jodie’s body is obscured by fog and by strategically-placed bathroom items. When these images blew up it was widely assumed Ellen Page filmed the scenes herself, despite widespread knowledge that the game makes extensive use of body doubling for several crucial moments. As it turns out, that was the case here.
In a statement released by Sony this morning (via Cinema Blend), Sony unequivocally expressed the company’s displeasure. “The images are from an illegally hacked console and is very damaging for Ellen Page,” the statement says. “It’s not actually her body.”
