The Last of Us: Naughty Dog apologises for hidden sex-chat numbers

The Last of Us is home to many secrets, but we’d never have guessed that a pair of hidden sex-chat numbers would be among them. As it happens, a gamer found the numbers, called them and sure enough, was connected the risqué services. Naughty Dog has now apologised for the error. Oops.

Naughty Dog. A bit too naughty, no? xD
But if Druckmann says it's an honest mistake, I'm sure it is. xP

Naughty Dog, apologize for what? The way I see it they shouldn't be apologizing for anything. The game is AMAZING and as of now its the head runner for game of the year as I see it. But its not for kids anyway. Its gory, raw, and if any kid plays this game, its the parents fault. Its rated M for a reason.

i don't know why they need to apologize about a 18+ game

it's not for kids

dear god
this is getting stupid now

CrossingEden1998d ago

its not about apologizing for the gore or violence, its apologizing for putting a phone sex line into their game, are you guys REALLY so deluded as fanboys that you defend a company putting someone else's map into a game, and now defending the fact that they put a phone sex line into their game -_- wow...

SilentNegotiator1998d ago there ARE real 555 numbers?


CrimsonStar1998d ago

LOL Naughty Dog has been really naughty that's like the 4th apology article I read in a few days lol . Its alright ill forgive you :DDDD

b_one1998d ago

its game for mature ppl...

Risqué Services? It certainly would be. I wonder what a clicker would look like in suspenders?

lsujester1997d ago

I'm sure it is, I doubt they called the numbers to make sure of what they really were, if anything.

Also, you know they have made a truly terrific game when people are going out of their way to make a big deal out of things like this.

RedHawkX1997d ago

i just hope ellie didnt see those. shame on jole for dialing those numbers though.

Why did people even call the number?

People do a lot in pursuit of easter eggs

Easter egg hunt

Kran1998d ago (Edited 1998d ago )

There are some easter eggs that actually do stuff.

There was one thing in Alan Wake where if you called a number, you'd be put through to Cauldron Lake Lodge's answer phone if i recall.

It's all for a bit of fun :)

It's not common, but sometimes they have small bonuses. Like the phone number shown on How I Met Your Mother during the superbowl episode went to a prerecorded message by Barney. Can't think of one in gaming sadly, but I am not one to bother with that anyway.

admiralvic1997d ago (Edited 1997d ago )

Huge difference between this and that platinum, since it was obviously worthwhile.
