Sony + Desperate = Porn on the PSP

http://www.wired.com/news/games/0,2101,67759,00.html

I hope that link works. Sony is releasing porn on the PSP. They're trying to use it to boost the popularity of their UMD disks, and their whole console line.

For the PSP:
"Two Japanese publishers of adult DVD video have announced plans to release a selection of their top titles on Sony's Universal Media Disc, or UMD, format, which is currently supported exclusively by the PSP, next month. These aren't shady gray-market items: The eight video discs will be officially licensed by Sony and carry the PSP logo on the package.

Don't laugh. If Sony truly wants UMD to become the standard in portable media storage, adult videos could be a big help."

What the heck? This proves that Sony is so desperate that they'll turn to the help of porn when they can't make it on their own like Nintendo and Microsoft. Sure the porn thing for the PS2 happend on it's own but the fact they're Licensing adult video's for the PSP shows they're desperate. Later on in the article they talk about the PS2:

"The DVD format benefited from porn, too -- this time because of the ability to skip scenes, jumping past all the (assuredly Shakespearian) dialogue and going directly to the good parts. And because the success of Sony's PlayStation 2 is greatly attributed to the fact that it was by far the cheapest DVD player in Japan when it launched in 2000, that means the PS2 also has the massive Japanese adult video market to thank, at least in part, for its dominance."

Now sure that came about on it's own, the PS2 was cheaper than the rest of the DVD players. But Sony knows that helped them so they're using it again. Fortunately there probably won't be many retail shops offering the video's to sell from fear of the paretn's complaining. So if nothing else we won't have to endure looking at them while we're shopping for other games.

This information turns me even more against Sony, although Microsoft wasn't mentioned in the article Nintendo was:

"And it's also reasonable to expect that no such content will ever appear on a Nintendo system in any country, as the company strives to maintain a family-friendly image worldwide. So adult UMDs are one thing the PSP has that the competing Nintendo DS, which is currently outselling the PSP, probably never will."

And that, even though I knew it already, keeps me strong for Nintendo. It also shows again that Sony is probably desperate, they can't beleive they lost to Nintendo in the hand-held market (I believe this ii the 10th hand-held console they've beaten (beaten being my own guess) although it was by far the toughest yet) so they're going to try and win through the adult movie market. If that doesn't prove Sony is evil I'm not sure what can.

It is my opinion that Apple, Microsoft, and Nintendo should come together and make the ultimate electronic company. Mac makes the computers, Microsoft disigns the console, and Nintendo pumps out the games and hand-helds ^ _ ^

w00t! I was wondering what happend to you! Thanks btw, I need to edit it giving a little to Microsoft for not marketing "adult entertainment" too much.

The sad part is, this is going to make Sony really popular in general. I mean, now I won't buy a PSP (even more) but that's just wrong that it will!
