Last of Us creators a bunch of Naughty Dogs?

PlayStation 3 exclusive The Last of Us is an incredible, genre-defying game. It’s also filled with a number of easter eggs, and other things that shouldn’t be in there, like Ellen Page’s face and a stolen subway map. And now people have found something else the game shouldn’t contain; phone number to sex hotlines.

Two phone numbers that are shown on a bulletin board within the game’s fictional future Pittsburgh are actually in-service numbers – and both will direct callers to places where they can pay money to talky dirty to women.

<em>The Last of Us</em>&#39; Hidden Phone-Sex Numbers &#39;A Mistake,&#39; Will Be Removed

Are Naughty Dogs a bunch of, well, Naughty Dogs? Well, no. According to Kotaku, it was all just an innocent mistake.

“That was an artist’s mistake,” Creative director Neil Druckmann said. “What happened was, they put some phone numbers in the game and then they thought they could just change the area code to 555, then it’s invalid because it’s what they do in movies. But I guess that doesn’t work when you have a 1-800 in front of it.

“We’re now working to take it out,” Druckmann said. “It was just an honest mistake.”

            Indeed Kaz is the lord and savior of our gaming hobby. Without him there would be no PS4. Accept him and you will enter the Sony Kingdom. Kaz forgives all.

    hahahah awesome! Hopefully GTA V does the same. Sometimes, you need a few sex hotline numbers to keep the loneliness at bay.

            Easy to spot the bad ones too. Just check for brown marks. He can also feel them up for firmness RIGHT THERE IN THE STORE MAN!!!

    The game is rated 18 – so I’m sure they can sexline as much as they want…
