Don’t share NSFW content captured on your PS4 with the world, or you may get your PSN account suspended.


Watch Dogs 2 developers have modelled genitalia for male and female NPCs.

Unfortunately, you can’t share your excitement over NPCs having private bits with the rest of the world, at least when it comes to taking screenshots of them using the PS4’s built-in share function. Well, you can, but you could run the risk of getting your PSN account suspended by Sony.

NeoGAF member Goron2000 found this out the hard way. After getting an early copy of the game and accidentally blowing up a group of NPCs, the user realised that the game does in fact have fully modelled genitalia. He took a screenshot and shared it on his Twitter, leading to Sony suspending his PSN account.

Here’s the screenshot. Warning, it’s definitely NSFW.

The email Goron2000 received from Sony said that sharing content of sexual or adult nature is a violation of the company’s code of conduct. The suspension period is one week, during which he won’t be able to use online functionality.

This is the email he received:

We’re writing to inform you that your Sony Entertainment Network account has been temporarily suspended. We’ve made this decision based on your online activity in Live from PlayStation on 14-11-2016.

Content of an adult or sexual nature is against our Code of Conduct. The suspension will last 1 week and will be lifted on 21-11-2016. You won’t be able to access online multiplayer, PlayStation Store and other network features until the suspension is over.

We take the decision to suspend an account very seriously, and we only do so after one of our moderators has carefully analysed the situation. PlayStation Support therefore cannot overturn this moderation decision.

We ask all our players to act decently, respectfully and with consideration for us and other players while using PlayStation Network. To make sure you understand the behaviour we expect from our community, please review the Code of Conduct here before returning to PlayStation Network. Please be aware that any further breaches of the Code of Conduct may result in a longer suspension or even a permanent ban.

Full frontal nudity can definitely be seen in other areas in Watch Dogs 2. Searching for Watch Dogs 2 nudity on Twitter will bring up many screenshots players captured in the game.

Watch Dogs 2 is out now on PS4, and Xbox One. The PC version will follow on November 29.
