    WTF!? This seems really desperate on both ends. I mean, she's a cute girl. But c'mon!  Here is the story. But in short, she allowed someone at Sony to mold her chest and utilize the breast plate for charity.

    It's because she "plays" video games. But I guess it's for a good cause. Breast cancer.

    What don't you understand?  She's using her sex appeal as a way to get money, using it for her job.  And it's obviously working, as there are many people who will pay a lot for that molded breastplate.  Everything she does makes desperate gamers starry eyed and that's why she keeps doing it.   
     
    Don't blame her, blame the people who are after her sexploitation.

    Actually... lots of famous girls do this. You just know some perv out there would pay a ridiculous amount of money for the molding, and all that money will go to charity. Everybody wins!

    I imagine that won't get much publicity. It's not such a big deal IMO - yes, she's getting by in a job about games on sexuality, but she did that for charity. And that's fairly noble to do something for charity, is it not?

    Who says she doesn't like video games?  Of course she does; but like someone like Morgan Webb, gamers only care about the fact that she's sexy and she likes their favorite hobby, whether or not they are good at their job. 
     
    Though, it's sad that it makes it harder for people like Kat Bailey or aspiring female game journalists to be actually appreciated for what they do when the gamers just want the sexy that people like Olivia Munn bring or even the cutesy fake bullshit that makes random folks like Ultra Neko so popular.

    Those are probably also harder ways too.  What's the problem if she's using her sexuality for a greater cause?  Would you prefer she just didn't give a shit and didn't do anything for charity instead?

    Not initially no. Like I said, I didn't put any thought into it...I just looked at the picture and went by her past ''sex appeal'' pictures. You didn't realise it was for breast cancer either at first, shown by you editing your post.

    @EpicSteve: I don't see the issue.  It's for breast cancer, so it's breast related, so a clay breast mold is pretty relevant.  It's going to bring a wider audience to where it's probably going to be auctioned off, because it's Jessica Chobot.  It may be an obvious attention grab.  But she does her on camera work on ign and she probably wants to go much farther than that. So she's going to get the extra publicity for it.  Can't blame her for wanting to get her name out there father.  It's not like that picture is anything worse than her in a bathing suit.

    Like another user already said, there are a lot of other ways to be involved in charity that doesn't involve your breasts. It's the fact she's always throwing herself into positions that revolve around the fact that she's a "hot chick". She even hosts an all-female podcasts labeled "girl fight", and that's the highest rated Ign podcast (according to Greg Miller). It may or not even be her doing, but everything she's involved in looks super desperate to get attention for her employer.

    Yeah, true. But at the same time charity was still a reasoning for it all. So it's reasonably decent, even if charity wasn't the top reason on the agenda.

    While it is a nice gesture. This breast plate thing isn't exactly making her look legit in front of the non-desperate gamers. Especially with her reputation so if she were to do it in some other less provocative way, say running video game tournament, then we probably wouldn't hear much about it. Of course, it doesn't matter what we say because she'll still get tons of attention back on IGN.

    Pretty much this. If she were just a regular journalist who didn't throw in your face the fact that she was a girl, she would receive more respect from the gamer community.

    The intentions were good, and it's easy for me to hate on the girl, but the way it's being promoted is an obvious ploy to grab headlines and the horny reader's attention. 
     
    As I've said many, many times before, Jessica Chobot is one of life's greatest mysteries. Here is a girl that I am annoyed by and desperately attracted to. I simultaneously feel the urge to tell her off and stick my tongue down her throat.
