Streaming Porn Service Blasts the PS3

SugarDVD is mixing hot girls with gaming on the PlayStation 3.

With the runaway success of Netflix on consoles well established, it was only a matter of time before its mainstream movies and television shows were joined by their seedier yet remarkably prolific cousin, the porn flick. And that time is now upon us thanks to the arrival of SugarDVD on the PlayStation 3.

SugarDVD offers a high-quality streaming video service similar to Netflix, except that its films aren't the sort of thing you're going to catch on AMC. Instead, subscribers are given access to hundreds of high-resolution, full length "adult" videos, "not the cheap grainy web content available elsewhere for free," with new movies being added every day. It's got all the categories you could want [plus at least a few you'll probably wish you never knew existed] and, for the true connoisseur, even offers search options for specific studios and performers.

"Gamers can now have their cake and eat it too on the PS3!" said SugarDVD rep Rebecca Bolen. "We believe we are hitting the nail on the head, so to speak, by offering TV streaming through the PS3 with no discs or downloads."

Let's not kid ourselves here. For all the pointing and laughing we do at the ridiculousness of porn titles and many of the "concepts" around which these flicks are built, this is going to be hugely popular. If I had a PS3 and an internet connection that wasn't akin to throwing wadded-up notes out the window, I'd be all over this. I bet you would, too. And while concerns about exactly which buttons little Timmy is mashing are legitimate, that's a parental problem - so parents, when you're done watching Bobbi Violates San Francisco, be sure to turn the thing off.

The unlimited streaming service on the PlayStation 3 costs $7.95 per month and includes 20 minutes of video-on-demand service, which offers a "pay per minute" service suitable for PCs and Macs. Absolutely no links to any of it will be provided.

Interesting, and probably good for the industry.

Personally not too interested though. *shrug*

Sony is sanctioning this? If so, then that's big change in corporate policy. I recall Sony not letting any games with an ESRB rating of AO be published on their systems.

Fox News is going to jump all over this.

Believe it or not, porn is big buisness. And its also one that takes many risks for advancement on a regular basis. I dont know what hell they had to pay to get Sony to think that letting them stream thier service on the PS3 would be a good idea, but i would think its one that shoulders none of the risk with Sony.

Much like with Brazzers sponsoring fighting game tournaments, this is something you wouldnt expect to hear about on any day, yet wouldnt be surprised about it actually happening.

That's Sony for ya! Always looking for new ways to give it's customers the shaft!

Oooh, if I had a PS3 and wasn't spoiled by all the free pornography on the internet, I'd be all over this.

Now to just wait for Microsoft to get in on it too.

..Well, damn. No Xbox 360 love, now!? I see how it is, porn! I SEE!!

....

Meh, the internet is far better for porn. And there is no limit on the internet for it, either.

People pay for porn?

I see what you did in the title there.

If I didnt have an extremely shitty laptop, a stolen internet connection, a hdmi cable, and free access to strippers I would be all over that.

The strangest thing about this is that it wasnt on consoles before netflix. The porn industry is normally the very first to adapt new technology.

You say that, but the image at least gives you the link.

But I like my free porn :(

It's just as good!

I foresee sony shutting this down, they didn't even want to let porn be on bluray.

Meh the free stuff is good enough for the 2.4 seconds I need it anyways!

I, um

did you pick that headline on purpose

anyway, wonder if sony will use this to promote their 3d service ;)

HobbesMkii:

Now I cannot unsee it...

Oh God why..

Hmmm... so perhaps the suspiciously phallic shape of the PS Move wasn't just an embarassingly bad design choice after all.... ;-)

RaNDM G:
Fox News is going to jump all over this.

And distort the hell out of it in the process.

DiamanteGeeza:

Or perhaps a porn mogul saw it and decided to take advantage.

I wouldn't be over this even if I had a PS3, because, one, there are two thing I refuse to pay for, porn and mods, two, I can't get off to videos with "MMF MMF MMF" and fake moaning bullshit, three, I'm furry to the core and four, I have /b/.

Oof. That joke...hurt me.

RaNDM G:

Yep, moral uproar in 3...2...

"Oh no! Kids can pay to watch stuff on there PS3 that they could already get for free! Oh whatever shall we do!? We'll blame the companies of course, not our own lack of pare-parenty...what's it called again?"

So, yeah. A console taking on a porn service. I honestly don't care much, I don't think many gamers will, but everyone who's never touched a controller before is gonna have an opinion on it, you can bet.

This has been happening since November. Why are you only talking about it now?

So does this mean that we will get Pwned By Girls? http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news/view/113108-Porn-Stars-Start-Topless-Gaming-Site

OT I see the headline now "Video Games Cause Aggressive Sexual Behavior!"

This does not sound like the porn I like....

Hmm how in the world is sony going to release this app is what I'm wondering. Over the pstore? :S This whole thing is strange.

No, no, no. Surely you mean "And give it a fair, balanced, unbiased report that sticks solely to the facts and doesn't make up a bunch of nonsense and blame abortions for everything"?

subscribers are given access to hundreds of high-resolution, full length "adult" videos, "not the cheap grainy web content available elsewhere for free,"

Yeah, there is free stuff like that too on the net fyi. Interesting that it offers it though, but why would I pay for it if I can get it for free? Besides, I don't mind the grainy, gets rid of imperfections.

I know what I'm doing on Friday nights now. So waaaaannttttt.

Doomed to failure.

Why would anyone want to voluntarialy pay for porn on the PS3 when they can already get it for free via the same sources they get it free on a PC? Plus getting the free stuff on the PS3 makes it that much harder to screw up an OS due to contingent files not being in place on the odd ps3 browser/OS

Wait....people PAY for porn?

Oooh, the moral guardians are going to have a fit! Anyone else remember what happened with the whole "Mass Effect Porn Simulator" thing? Imagine how they're going to react when video game consoles ACTUALLY have porn on them.

After a bit of of research, I have found out that this will not be an app directly on the PS3, much to my comfort; I have a younger brother who loves Little Big Planet for whom this would be highly inappropriate. It's not a PS3 application and uses the web browser, so no one is really going to find this without specifically looking for it.

but surely this will result in a happy ending for Sony's user base

I cannot quote this enough.

You forgot gays and Mexicans.
