Streaming Porn Service Coming to Next Xbox

SugarDVD logo

SugarDVD, the adult video service that began streaming onto consoles last year, has confirmed that it will be available on the new Xbox.

We all had a good giggle last year when SugarDVD launched its streaming porn service for the PlayStation 3, but I also predicted at the time that it would be a hit nonetheless. And although I don't have hard numbers to back it up, the fact that it's still available on the PS3 (and the Xbox 360, Wii U, Ouya, iPad, Android and other platforms) speaks for itself, as does the announcement that it'll be coming on the new Xbox, set to be revealed to the world on May 21.

SugarDVD starts at $7.95 for unlimited streaming service and also offers options for DVD rentals through the mail and "Pay-Per-Minute" viewing - because hey, who watches these things for more than a few minutes at a time, am I right? There's even a free trial, for those who aren't 100 percent clear about what's on offer here.

Game consoles these days are "multimedia entertainment delivery systems," and "Any console would benefit from having unlimited HD adult content at the click of a button," said SugarDVD rep Rebecca Bolen. And she's right: You may not be terribly inclined to put your copy of Scale Bustin' Babes 41 on the shelf next to Gears of War 3, but that doesn't mean there's not a big demand for this stuff. Sex sells, and sometimes you just have to mash your button a little bit. It's normal!

Does anybody else find it strange that a bigger deal hasn't been made over this?

Not because it should be an issue, but considering PG13 sex scenes in games cause such outrage half of the time, I'd expect the "angry ignorant parent" collective to be causing a fuss and claiming that console developers are trying to sell porn to kids.

EDIT: On a side note, does this mean that Microsoft will start selling anti-bacterial controller wipes as an accessory?

Man, I hope this thing has Kinect support. :P

I could be wrong, but this isn't an app, is it? This just means it's compatible with the web browser. I've never seen the app on the PS3.

Wait, there's going to be porn showing on a device that will have a permanently on 3D camera? hmmmmmm.......

Will there be leaderboards?

This just makes me wonder why exactly console manufacturers do not license adult content. The median age of gamers has gone up, and cable companies offer adult content behind a paywall, so why not adult videogames?

Good chance they have no idea such a thing exists. I doubt you'd see this advertised outside of most major gaming sites. Not particularly likely you'll have Soccer Mums going into EB/Gamestop and seeing posters advertising porn on consoles all over the place.

Wii U already lets you watch Spankwire and Xvideo through the browser for free :P Though to be fair, I think any console with a browser does.

How many achievement points will this be worth?

Man... could you imagine how much fun it would be giving official names to porn app achievements?

It does kind of feel like two steps forward, one step back. Maybe they should make it so sex in video games is taken seriously before offering full on hardcore porn.

Then again, the p[orn industry is pretty huge, isn't it? So having them on the side of video games COULD help, I think.

With a name like yours, I'm sure you'd get all those achievements in no time.

More importantly, how many would be worth 69 achievement points for the giggles?

I don't know about that. I'm sure there'd be some really hard ones.

Achievement unlocked: "Facial the Music". You were caught watching porn on Kinect.
Achievement unlocked: "It's a grey area". First Barely legal video played.
Achievement unlocked:: "Icing on the cake". First Bukakke video played.

I could do this for hours.

Oh please. Everyone knows the Scale Bustin' Babes franchise jumped the shark after 28!

I can see it now...

The Money Shot. 100G

You know exactly where to hit ;)

Or perhaps less subtly

Hit pornstar's face with your jizz. Will require clean-up afterwards.

Obviously that one requires Kinect.

The Man With The Iron Wrist

How long have you been going for?!

People... people pay for adult videos?

I'm confused again. Halp.

Achievement unlocked: "One Night in Paris". Watched the Paris Hilton vid.
Achievement unlocked: "It doesn't matter if...". First interracial video played.
Achievement unlocked: "The devil deep inside". First FMM video played.
Achievement unlocked: "Fire Goddess". First redhead video played.
Achievement unlocked: "Foot Loose". First fetish video played.
Achievement unlocked: "Multipass". First group video played.

It's actually pretty fun.

Because porn isn't as bad as the heavy petting and side-boob in Mass Effect!

I too am suprised that the Angry Christian Mothers Society haven't called for blood already, especially if this is on the WiiU which I am led to believe is aimed at families. Maybe they have given up? Shit, maybe I've jinxed it! Noone say anything.

Probably because you actually have to install it through the browser (rather than the usual app "markets"), and nobody uses a console browser to install an app that launches the browser.

Because stores refuse to stock them.

As for streaming porn on the next X-box, that's lovely I guess, I can't imagine it would be terribly successful, but that I feel the same way about any paid porn service, and they are clearly still working.

One funny thing would be to stream a fuckton of Halo Gay porn on release date.

Wait... people actually pay for porn?

Considering that you can't delete achievements, having them with this could be hilaaaarious. Especially if there's a

..the instant the app is first started.

because its hard to design video games to be played with only one hand. Also as far as I am aware porn is pretty cheap to make as all you need is a camera, location and 1 person, This means you only need a handful of people to buy it to make a profit. While making a adult game of anything that would be notably better then those you can get online would be really expensive, pretty sure if it was cheap to do that there would be companies spewing out adult games.

Andy Chalk:

Don't worry too much about it. It's not a big deal, and it supposedly happens to everyone...

As much as all the jokes are fun, I don't think this is even something to discuss beyond joking around. A console provides the internet, people will use the internet for porn, something will happen to enable that. Not much to say about an unsurprising series of events, besides I guess echoing the "amazing no one is raising a controversy over this yet" sentiment.

What these guys said.

People pay for porn? Don't they realise that you can get it for free on the any console with a web browser? The masses obviously need to be educated...where there is porn there is a way.

Good, lately I've been getting bored with pornography. Watching it on my computer is just... too easy. I need something new, I need something fresh, and this... this is fresh.

And a microphone. 8-|

George Orwell would be horrified, I'm sure. He just thought the threat was the government, not corporations.

Why bother? The 360 already has a functional internet browser which means all the free porn on the internet is already available for streaming.

Seriously, I will never understand why people pay for porn anymore... unless your fetish is so ridiculously uncommon that you can't find a site that has a decent selection of it for free.

Has anyone made a Sexbox pun yet? If not, Sexbox. (roflolololz)

OT: With all the outlets you can find porn these days I really do wonder why anyone would turn to a video game console app as their go-to choice. Whatever, as long as I can get a pun out of it.

Well somebody has to cater to the more discerning customers in need of a duck-giraffe-mongolian warlord three way, or a Peter Molyneux look-alike orgy.
Why is this news anyway? Does the console have a web browser? Yes! Ergo, it has porn. Now unless it comes with a tagline like "with SugarDVD every event is a quicktime event" this really isn't worth mentioning.
