X-rated Xbox X-blades cover differs from its conservative PS3 cousin

Console exclusive bonuses seem to be the new way of dealing with multiplatform titles, but this may be the first time that console exclusive boners have come into play. Apparently, if you get the Xbox 360 version of Southpeak's X-Blades, you get a free arse for your troubles.

While both sets of artwork leave little to the imagination, the 360 version of the Japanese box art has main character Ayumi flashing a tad more skin with a thong so tight that a mere sneeze would slice her in three. Quite why PS3 owners have been denied this glorified dental floss on the heroine's shitecrack I do not know, but there you have it. 

In other news, I entered a silly Twitter competition and won an X-Blades poster, which was quite cool. What was slightly less cool was that I found, also buried in the package, a selection of high-quality printouts of various X-Blades screenshots. Yes, following their constant barrage of screens and my pleas for help, they decided to start mailing them. 

The poster and the ... screens ... are photographed and available for viewing in the gallery. I'm going to go back to looking at drawings of arses.
