Some players across the world have had access to Watch Dogs 2 ahead of launch. Popular folk, like streamers and industry insiders. However, one of them uploaded a screenshot taken in-game, which shows that Ubisoft have fully modeled all parts of the human body, which can be seen from the right angles. He then had his PlayStation account suspended. Let us explain.
NeoGAF member Goron2000 posted a picture straight to Twitter from his PlayStation using the available feature, and days later, found himself with a suspended account due to the nature of his post. He was punished for the fact that he shared sexually explicit imagery from Watch Dogs 2, obviously kind of surprised by what he had discovered. Sure we all share our findings to social media, don’t we?
The image is very NSFW, but I feel it should be reported anyway, because it’s an interesting one. The game clearly features these graphical details, and the console lets the players upload gameplay clips and still screenshots. Is he really in the wrong? Maybe.

He also received an email from Sony, telling him why he was suspended for the week.
“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.”
Obviously he’s not happy about being suspended from online play, but thankfully for his sake it’s only a one week suspension. Still, he’s not taking it lightly.
@Swizzasaur Sony have suspended my PSN account for a week for sharing this image. Sorry Sony I'll go back to sharing pics of corpses in re7
