A teenage girl who was photographed topless, apparently during Spring Break at South Padre Island, is now a "prize" in a video game that rewards players by revealing images of topless women.

"The Guy Game," available for about $40 for the popular Xbox and Playstation game consoles, touts "over 60 smokin' coeds" in its advertising, which plays to the "Girls Gone Wild" set: "Real video of actual Spring Break Hotties."

The problem is, the girl was 17 when she was photographed, which not only raises questions about the legality of the material, but renders moot any consent she may have given, according to a lawsuit filed Monday in Travis County District Court. advertisement

In the suit the girl, identified as Jane Doe, asked that any copies of "The Guy Game" with her in it be pulled from distribution. A judge granted a temporary restraining order prohibiting Microsoft, Sony and others from selling any of the games which used the girl's image, voice and name. The game was developed by two Austin software companies.

A spokesman for the parent company of one of the defendants, Gathering of Developers Inc., declined to comment. None of the others defendants could be reached for comment Monday.

Nice entrapment! Looks like the girl pre-arranged her payday very neatly: "I'll let them take a bunch of pictures - If I'm lucky, the pictures will get publiced in some way and I can sue big company in future and make a living for rest of my life. And it does not hurt to get publicity, because I can sell then even more photos..."

WT,
Perhaps you're not looking good enough... or show enough?

SF,
You want to be a girl?
That's scary...

Hahahaha... Sure...for A DAY I said...which would be more than enough to turn this world upside down I guess...marry some Millionare...then get divorced in the afternoon...take his money...and come back to post in our forum the day after (transformed back into man)...and loaded with $$$...and the last post would be...BYE MEMBERS, VISIT ME SOMETIMES IN MY HAWAIIAN VILLA-YOU ARE ALL WELCOME... *JOKE* I just couldnt do that...even if I would have millions of $$$ in my hand...just couldnt leave such superb members as CDRInfo members sure are...

And why scary, Cooler? Maybe I would turn into some nice hot blonde like Pamela or maybe into nice brunette like Angelina Jolie alias Lara Croft...

Lets go to work...we are daydreaming again...

I had fun when few friends were visiting recently, as they saw commercial (about TV show coming soon) with tagline "would you want to date this girl?" and a link to website for joining to the line of candidates. Most of the guys were drooling after that girl and after I pointed out some suspicious details i observed, they clearly were on denial. A little detective work... and they started to look scary... as the "girl" was not a girl after all!

So, guy-girl differences can be a bit scary for some people sometimes.
OTOH, wanting to be something which is (not hard, but) impossible is usually scary, as if not giving up, said someone may try to reach truly extreme measures... for nothing.
