323w ago - ABC News reports that a Houston man has been arrested after using the PS3 to persuade an 11 year old girl to send him pictures of herself nude.

"People don't realize how the PlayStation is like a regular computer," said Eric Devlin, the Harris County, Texas, prosecutor who has been leading the case.

To quote: 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. 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.

Oshea was taken into custody this afternoon by local police near his home. Houston authorities say they will try to bring him to Texas for trial.

"People don't realize how the PlayStation is like a regular computer," said Eric Devlin, the Harris County, Texas, prosecutor who has been leading the case. The suspect, Devlin said, "threw his old computer out because he didn't need it."

You guys have it all wrong. Firstly the death penalty is inefficient it costs way to much money (about 3x as much as keeping them in jail for life if you were wondering). Besides, wouldn't it be slightly more cruel to let them rot in solitaire for the rest of there days.

Maybe, ever couple days let in a big guy named Bubba to make him squeal like a little girl. And perhaps, depending on what he did, maybe tie him down, give him a thousand small cuts, and then pour vinegar on him (Pump him with adrenaline so he remains conscience).

While it might not be as amusing as the game ideas, it would definitely send a message to potential sickos in the world.

I kind of Loled at this. not because of the girl or anything, but fox does reports on every hand held gaming console and say it's a tool for child molesters. They said it about the NDS picto chat and the PSP which they named PlayStation pornible which supposedly everyone was calling it.

It's completely stupid that they ignore real threats for fake ones. Your kid is playing on the Wii with someone you never meant before.... Only that range is global.

The 2 retarded videos.

Actually, I prefer what he did in the comic instead.

It's a shame that the story's been positioned this way; it's not specific to the PS3, any tool can be misused, and the more powerful it is the more misuse is possible.

Another another note, I just want to say its great to be apart of this group and I'm sure I will learn a lot here and hopefully share what wisdom I have.

i agree completely however then i fear we would spawn many protests against people being hunted for sport and there is already enough crap on the news anyway lol . hmmm... battle royale ?

These idiots are the ones who give the PS3 a bad name. The media gets all over it and everyone just thinks, "Wow, the PS3 is evil!" just because this happened with the PS3.

Why can't we hear about people using the PS3's cell to compute some impressive research project?
