    Fox News on Mass Effect Sex Scene

    [MEDIA]http://youtube.com/watch?v=DCPXQvdmys0[/MEDIA]

    How ignorant can these people be, after seeing the video you'll know exactly what I'm talking about.

    And this is what EA had to say about it.
    Your headline above the televised story read: "New videogame shows full digital nudity and sex."
    Fact: Mass Effect does not include explicit or frontal nudity. Love scenes in non-interactive sequences include side and profile shots - a vantage frequently used in many prime-time television shows. It's also worth noting that the game requires players to develop complex relationships before characters can become intimate and players can chose to avoid the love scenes altogether.

    FNC voice-over reporter says: "You'll see full digital nudity and the ability for players to engage in graphic sex."
    Fact: Sex scenes in Mass Effect are not graphic. These scenes are very similar to sex sequences frequently seen on network television in prime time.

    FNC reporter says: "Critics say Mass Effect is being marketed to kids and teenagers."
    Fact: That is flat out false. Mass Effect and all related marketing has been reviewed by the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) and rated Mature - appropriate for players 17-years and older. ESRB routinely counsels retailers on requesting proof of age in selling M-rated titles and the system has been lauded by members of Congress and the Federal Trade Commission. In practical terms, the ratings work as well or better than those used for warning viewers about television content.
    The resulting coverage was insulting to the men and women who spent years creating a game which is acclaimed by critics for its high creative standards. As video games continue to take audiences away from television, we expect to see more TV news stories warning parents about the corrupting influence of interactive entertainment. But this represents a new level of recklessness.

    Do you watch the Fox Network? Do you watch Family Guy? Have you ever seen The OC? Do you think the sexual situations in Mass Effect are any more graphic than scenes routinely aired on those shows? Do you honestly believe that young people have more exposure to Mass Effect than to those prime time shows?

    This isn't a legal threat; it's an appeal to your sense of fairness. We're asking FNC to correct the record on Mass Effect.

    Sincerely,

    And the scene in question:

    Very tastefully done I thought.

    Seriously, this is the kind of thing that fuels my hatred for Fox.

    It just goes to show how dumb the guys at Fox News are, they never have their facts straight.

    I love how Keighly just shuts her up with that question, the lame thing is how the reporter stopped him from telling her off.

    Lol, they have absolutely no idea what they are talking about. Ignorance with a capital 'I'.

    I've completely finished this game, saw 1 sex scene, which was basically nothing - no nudity. There is way worse stuff on TV, people need to wake up to themselves.

    The "news" as they call it is garbage. I refuse to watch it for more than local sports and weather, none of their stories have any real impact anymore, just trying to get ratings. A load of worthless anal-retentive "news" anchors.

    Just found some more stuff about this.
    This Fox News Mass Effect imbroglio is turning into quite the drama. To bring everyone up to speed: Fox News made erroneous claims about Mass Effect. Game journalist and one-time Kotaku guest editor Geoff Keighley tried to clear the air, but the network's panel and dime store Freud shrink Cooper Lawrence wouldn't listen. The internet got angry and spammed her book's Amazon.com and Barnes&Noble listings. Amazon.com has since turned off the comments and erased user added images for her book's page.

    Electronic Arts, likewise, got upset and called out the news network on its "insulting" inaccuracies. The Fox producer of the segment in question blew off Electronic Arts' request for a correction. There still hasn't been a correction or an apology from Fox News. The game publisher added that it won't back down and will continue to "step up when someone maligns our creative teams." According to MTV Multiplayer, Fox News issued this statement:


    Fox News Channel has extended several invitations to EA through a company representative to appear on Live Desk With Martha MacCallum to discuss Mass Effect and the segment which aired on Monday. We have received no response.


    Hey Fox, the point isn't inviting EA onto your dog and pony show to set the record straight. It's for you to do that yourself. Get a clue. This is libel.
