Yahtzee's Prototype vs. InFamous Challenge

Yes, another update that has nothing to do with SWTOR. But this is just too funny to pass up. Don't worry, we'll get a new timeline tonight according to Sean, so suck it up until then.

One of my favorite reviewers, and of many other I'm sure, though not so much for the quality of the reviews and more because of entertainment value is Yahtzee (doing the Zero Punctuation reviews for The Escapist Magazine; you know, the videos with the guy who talks really fast). And a couple of weeks ago he did a review where he compared InFamous and Prototype. Here's the video:

As you can see, at the end he can't decide which of the two quite similar games is the better one. And to ensure that balance would be restored to the universe he (jokingly I'm sure) proposed a challenge to both developers to prove which one was better. "Namely, which of the two studios could produce the best image of the rival game's main character wearing women's lingerie."

Now it seems that both companies took the challenge to heart (or, more likely, that they decided to play along with the joke and get some free advertising out of it) and they sent in images doing just that. And here is Yahtzee's response to them, declaring a winner in the end.

For your convenience though, I'll put the two images below (there's a third one as well here, but it's not as good as the other two). Oh, and these are not for the faint of heart.

Can you guess which one he picks as the winner before reading the article?
