Report: Sony Pressures Sites to Bury Beyond: Two Souls Debug Mode Stories

Several reports have surfaced today (originating from a Kotaku report) that Sony has supposedly been pressuring certain publications to pull down reports about a debug mode in Beyond: Two Souls that allows access to alternate camera angles, including one for the game's shower scene. From that angle, users can supposedly see a detailed nude version of the game's main character, who was based on Ellen Page.

According to CinemaBlend, Sony told them to pull down their coverage, as well as Eskimo Press who claims to have received a similar message from Sony Computer Entertainment Europe.

Cinema Blend says that rep. from the company told them:

"The images are from an illegally hacked console and is very damaging for Ellen Page. It's not actually her body. I would really appreciate if you can take the story down."

Sony is likely concerned that these scenes might remind the ESRB and the public of Rockstar's Hot Coffee incident with GTA: San Andreas.

We'll have more on this story as it develops.

    According to the report, the images are from a PS3 dev kit.  Dev kits can, obviously, access debug modes.
