Porn on your Xbox, it is happening

Another case of a cheap exploit of a big brand name and another “taking advantage of a platform” to promote questionable content is once again in the works. These things never cease to amaze me.

YouPorn has taken it upon them to use the fact that Xbox 360 will include Internet Explorer as a feature, as a new way to promote their…errr service. In a very kittens-and-rainbows friendly post on their official blog YouPorn reminds their users that their Xbox 360s will soon be glorified porn playerss. They also suggest to their users that they might want to join the 2012 XBL public beta, which already has the browser included.

“Thanks at long last to the introduction of Internet Explorer for XBox, you can now tap in to and stream all your favorite free YouPorn videos right from your Xbox,” says the blog. “Whether you’re pwning n00bs in CoD: Modern Warfare 3, annihilating Bullymong in Borderlands 2, or taking the Saints deep in Madden NFL 13, you’re never more than a few simple controller clicks away from being face deep in hot free porn.”

Unsurprisingly Microsoft is not keen to be branded as a platform providing adult content.

“To be clear, we are adding Internet Explorer to Xbox Live, not specific adult content providers like YouPorn or any other specific website content,” Microsoft told Kotaku. “Additionally, we give members and parents the option to turn this feature on or off for their accounts. Access to Internet Explorer for all Child accounts is blocked by default.”

I think the most laughable part of it all is that YouPorn is making it seem like this was something they planned to happen or that their service is being added to the console as a feature, whereas it’s really got nothing to do with them.
