Beyond Two Souls’ Ellen Page Not Happy With Leaked Nude Images
Sony Computer Entertainment has been sending out requests to all websites that include naked images of Ellen Page from Beyond Two Souls, asking for the images to be removed immediately. During the first few emails the reasoning was unclear but it has since been reported that Sony are asking for the images to be removed due to “legal reasons”.
It’s very possible that Ellen Page is threatening to sue Sony and Quantic Dream as Beyond Two Souls gives players the opportunity to see the virtual star naked, albeit not too easily. We’re expecting more on this story so watch this space!

PlayStation 4 Cross-Game Chat Confirmed To Support 8 Users
One of the biggest complaints for PlayStation fans of this generation was the inability to use voice communications with anyone outside the game they’re playing. Sony have responded as they have confirmed that the PlayStation 4 will support 8 players with the cross-game chat function.
This is great news as it’s a feature that put Microsoft in front for communication this generation. Gamers will finally be able to create more of a community among their friends, regardless of the game they’re playing.
Rockstar Working On Famous IP
Doron Feinstein, Senior Graphics Engineer at Rockstar New England, recently updated his LinkedIn profile with some information hinting at a sequel to a popular Rockstar IP. Sadly he didn’t list the actual of the game or any other information outside of his original comment “Currently working on: Next version of a famous IP”.
We could be seeing the first information regarding a sequel to the massively popular Red Dead Redemption, some big style DLC for Grand Theft Auto V, a new Bully release or even maybe something to do with Agent; which has all but disappeared. Either way, it’s exciting times for Rockstar fans.
