"The nudity placed there by the publisher/maker, Electronic Arts, is accessed by the use of a simple code that removes what is called 'the blur' which obscures the genital areas. In other words, the game was released to the public by the manufacturer knowing that the full frontal nudity was resident on the game and would be accessed by use of a simple code widely provided on the Internet."
The "simple code" is a software hack that reveals the featureless Barbie doll bodies underneath the blur filter. EA has called the mess "nonsense" and says there is "no content inappropriate for a teen audience" in the game.
Next Thursday EA will be broadcasting its quarterly stockholders' meeting online. It'll take place at 2:00 pm Pacific time if anyone wants to listen in. Fiscal first quarter results should be announced Tuesday.
