The basic human needs have a steady demand. That's an unavoidable fact - we drink, we eat, we occasionally visit the toilet, and we have to desire to mate with the opposite sex. The online adult entertainment quickly boomed in the 90's, and quickly became a billion dollar business while many other "dot.com wonders" struggled.
Now think Sony. They got the new Playstation Portable, a.k.a. PSP, out and they have a desire to make the compact UMD, the Universal Media Disc, a widely adopted standard for portable media. What do to achieve this? They sign up with an adult entertainment company to release their top titles on the UMD.
Don't laugh. If Sony truly wants UMD to become the standard in portable media storage, adult videos could be a big help.Source: WIRED
The videos, published by hmp and Glay'z (explicit adult content), will debut next month. Prices range from 1,925 to 3,800 yen (about $18 to $35). Though other UMD videos have been region-coded, the back-of-the-package artwork for the Glay'z videos suggests that they will work in any PSP machine regardless of region.
