PS3 stays porn free

r18 logo e1266358812853 PS3 stays porn freeGamers are said to have active imaginations, which is a good thing because they’re going to need to continue using them in the future. Yes, Vivid Video, the world’s largest distributor of adult entertainment, has run into a brick wall in their attempts to get their mature content streaming on the PS3. Sony, didn’t you claim that the PS3 “only did everything”?

Steven Hirsch, founder and co-chairman of Vivid, told CVG that negotiations did take place: “We started conversations with Sony but they didn’t lead anywhere.” Hirsch also added that the company will now be looking to get their material on other consoles, namely the Xbox 360: “If we could get further than we did with Sony, we’d be very interested.”

Had a deal been struck it would have seen adult videos become available on the Video Store with age restricted access. Have Sony missed a trick? Love or loathe porn, there’s no question that sex sells. They could have made a bomb. Sony must have been concerned that adult material being present on the console could potentially have damaged the image of the company. Who said the games industry is immoral, eh?

PS3 owners will have to stick to admiring the lovely Madison of Heavy Rain fame for their blood pumping kicks while Xbox 360 owners may get to admire the real thing – well a less manufactured thing at least.
