PlayStation Sex Crime: Criminal Used Video Game to Get Girl's Naked Pictures

ABC News wrote: "Prosecutors in Houston say they have tracked down and arrested a man who allegedly committed an online sex crime -- though technically he didn't even have a computer.

All he needed, the prosecutors say, was a game console -- a Sony PlayStation 3." (PS3)

mm.... I also have pics of my girl on my PS3, she's 25 but that makes me evil too?
Elven6  +   1987d ago
Gambare: Pic's or it didn't happen!

Jokes aside, I think the reason for concern is the fact that she was underage and her parents allowed such things to happen. Surely something should have raised a flag.

Let's all conveniently forget about all the times this has happened through MySpace and blame it on video games (again).

I agree with Elven6. Pics!

no kidding, last month My Space removed around 90,000 sex offenders from their site.

Dang, soon your toaster will let you surf the net!
On one side: Cell phones (most with camera!), Ipods, Kitchen appliances (LG fridges), netbooks, soon everything will be connected to the internet...

On the other side, an 11 year old girl stripping in front of a pure stranger... (and managed to take a picture of herself, and send it with a game console... Not bad, since it's not so easy!)

Somehow, the parents where definitively not watching her surfing habit much for sure. Internet is here to stay, and will be available for more and more appliances in a house. Only thing to do now is set filters and WATCH your kids. Not so sure those parents were.... Didn't take 2 minutes for the whole ordeal to happen!

After all the times ps fanboys have attacked xbl when this happens lets see them now prove they arent hypocrites and attack £ony and psn.

Oh wait...
whateva  +   1987d ago
Why is a 11 year old taking nude pictures of her self?
that's another question!
pixelsword  +   1987d ago
That's the ONLY question
The parents should also be questioned.
gambare  +   1987d ago
I think pixel hit the nail on the head, usually in this cases the parents are involved too, but that could be part of the police investigation.
Cajun Chicken  +   1987d ago
F**king sick.
But what is there to stop this type of thing, unfortunatly, there isn't really anything to do.
Fact is that people below my age have been pretty much absorbed with the internet at a very early age and don't worry about personal details. I mean, look at the things that people post on Myspace and Facebook and adding random people who 'seem nice' as friends. The majority of parents don't seem to care, leave the kids entertained with a PC/Console and don't realise that the internet is NOT a safe place.
No doubt as with every tale of pedos on consoles, the media is going to enjoy spinning this one.
AuToFiRE  +   1987d ago
Whats sad is this happens almost everyday, its happened several times so far on the xbox, but this is the first time on a PS3 i have ever heard of

The power of the cell.

EDIT: :| Just read, an 11 year old girl? Not funny..
SiLeNt KNighT  +   1987d ago
@DeathroW22
nah, ill give it ya. that was pretty funny. im with 'whateva', why does this 11yo girl have naked photos in the first place? i guess we should look at the bright side, she didnt have the eyetoy! Not to make a joke of this but people are just getting ridiculous these days. Children don't get dumber and I sure as hell know I would never do something like that at that age. Horrible parents imo. We should see if the Power of Cell can implant good parenting skills to stupid people.

Joke article.
"They allege that the man, Anthony Scott Oshea of Somerset, Ky., persuaded an 11-year-old girl in Houston to e-mail nude pictures of herself from her PlayStation to his."

There aren't any 11 year olds on PS3. I think the media got their news twisted yet again and thinks that Sony = Microsoft & that PS3 = 360 in this article. Either that, or the guy he was really talking to posed as an 11 year old just like people go into adult chat room pretending they are under 13 for lulz.
Elven6  +   1987d ago
So much wrong with your logic I don't know where to begin.

With over 20 million users on the PSN are you telling me NOT A SINGLE ONE is under the age of 13? And why exactly can it not be the PS3?

Are you that stupid?
Eiffel  +   1987d ago
@DNAgent
Its okay...sorry everyone just an angry fanboy...keep it moving.

Hopefully N4G will have a sh1t filter for people like DNAgent.
DNAgent if you're going to post such statements might want to back it up. Out of 20 million users on PSN I'm sure some are under aged. A person with head trauma could figure that out in a instant.

wow i guess i should have just read highatus' comment and agreed. we said almost the same thing.
poopface1  +   1987d ago
I know its not right
but why is an 11 year old girl taking nude pics of herself. Do kids nowadays have no common sense? The guys a pedo and the girl seems like a little slut. put those two together and it cant be good.
Bathyj  +   1987d ago
I was chatting to 16 year old girl. She started getting all dirty and sleazy. Then she told me she was an undercover cop.

How cool a job is that for a girl her age?
Bathyj  +   1987d ago
Yes, that was a joke.

I though I'd better clarify that for the slower amongst you less you grab your torches and pitchforks.
cayal  +   1987d ago
With unfunny 'jokes' like that, I wouldn't be accusing anyone of being slow if I were you.
NegativeCreep427  +   1987d ago
@ Cayal
Shut the F up and try removing that 10 ft. long stick from your a$$ once in a while.

Lighten the hell up!!!
cayal  +   1987d ago
uh right? who are you?
Bathyj  +   1987d ago
Really, I thought it was hilarious when first I heard it.

Anyway, I'd rather be facetious, then just a flat out jerk. If I didn't explain it was a joke I would have had a different group of idiots accusing me of being a molester. I mean look at his avatar, he must be evil......

What don't people get about Sony PLAYSTATION 3 COMPUTER Entertainment System? It's not JUST a gaming console. And it's not really a PLAYSTATION 3 sex crime, it's an online sex crime using PS3's to access the internet.
ViperX2  +   1987d ago
dumb a$$
"though technically he didn't even have a computer"... what an idiot, the PS3 is a computer, just because it's not a PC doesn't make it not a computer.
Ethreon  +   1987d ago
Well
At least he had the right console, hope he managed to advertise ps3 to his other pedo-buddies.

"PS3, it's so easy to use, that even an 11-year old girl can use it!"
Sangria  +   1987d ago
A friend (girl) received a pic of a naked man, including his... while she was only on Home,. Some person are just huge dumbasses, whatever it's on PS3 or 360.
ChozenWoan  +   1987d ago
I find it interesting
that it's considered a console based crime when it's on the PS3, but not so much so when it's on Xbox. This is the first time I've heard of such a thing happening on the PS3, but I've heard of it being pretty common on Live. Then again, Sony just opened up it's community portion of PSN aka Home so it was only a mater of time before this sort of thing happened.

I guess we can all agree that Sony now has a real online community thanks to PSN Home.
Elven6  +   1987d ago
I was thinking this was either in Home or on his PS3 via Linux, the story does say he got rid of his PC so he probably installed Linux on his PS3 and used that as his primary "PC", of course not everyone knows that can happen so when they see a PS3 in his workstation they will obviously claim it was on his PS3 before doing more research.
