Sony PSP = PlayStation Pr0n?

Written by Lasse Penttinen @ 08 Jun 2005 11:58 User comments (41)

Sony PSP = PlayStation Pr0n? 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.

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.

YESSS just what I need asian porn for my PSP... I hope I they are subtitled so I can read what they are moaning

38.6.2005 12:22

hahahahah.

They will face the crisis of... 1. Who buys porn when you can download it? 2. May face lawsuits. I don't know how, I don't know why, but it will probably happen, and because of the way this world works, somehow, somewhere, someone will win. I don't own a PSP. =)

58.6.2005 12:58

Nasty, but, some people out there like this sick sh1t

68.6.2005 13:25

hey pop are you making fun of my love of porn and my love for my psp? hey wait I have an idea can they make an adaptor so I can make love to my psp? LOL

78.6.2005 13:26

What about us young 'uns? I can almost certainly see young kids (such as myself) getting hold of these explicit UMDs.. I agree with Toiletman, they will undoubtedly face lawsuits as a result of this.. -Mike

Some is an understatment. Allot of people that where around for the betamax vs. vhs war site peoples intrest in porn as a major factor in why VHS untimatly won the war. Sony was reluctant to open up their media format (betamax) leaving the adult film industry with the only option for home distrubution of the hundreds of adult films in theaters to be VHS. Thats right, allot of people bought VHS players so they could watch porn. Its not enough to just have the maufactures on your side and allot of money. You must have content aswell! Sony is just tring not to make the same mistakes twice (kinda). It will be intresting to see if they will follow suit with BlueRay aswell. Lawsuits? Ced

@slacker, I was not making fun of anyone. I simply wanted to point out that I don't like (ya ya, you guys all think I am weird) p0rn. I admit I may look at everyonce in a while but, I see no need of making it portable.

Wow, some interesting comments in here. What if young 'uns get it? What makes the PSP any different from portable DVD players in this regard? Or is the PSP only for children? The porn industry is huge. Free porn all over the net and yet still large porn studios are flourishing. Personally, I think it's about time the mainstream pulled their heads out of you-know-where and recognized this industry for what it is. A legitamate industry that has a significant following, giving them a lot of influence. Like porn or hate porn, doesn't matter. Sex sells and it will always sell. Ignoring it or pretending it doesn't exist doesn't generate sales.

you can just compress your movies give up quality for size and just put your porn that you just dl form the net on your memory stick....save 20 bucks and the embarrasment of being a perv... not that i have done this already... :LOOKS AROUND:: :RUNS:

158.6.2005 17:43

YES!!!!!! Finally I have something to do during school... Now I don't have to lug around my laptop and ask my teachers if I can go to the bathroom during class because I had taco bell last night. The PSP's small size will make it easier to do in class. This truly has put me in a good mood:-)

i know this will probably set everyone off...but...if you think about it...at least someone is willing to give the psp a shot at bunch of releases(even though they are not the greatest launches in the world).....but someone is making blank umd so these companies can make these disc...so hopefully in the future these disc will be available to the general public...i don't give a f*ck about the porn industry i would just like some blank umds.... :)

I bought a psp 2 days ago but still I couldn't use it for some reasons, will somebody help me about it? well, I don't know if the adaptor will be ok if I plug it on a 240 electricity outlet. i'm afraid that my PSP would go BOOM! on me. Is it alright if I plug it since the input is:100-240v?

"The basic human needs....desire to mate with the opposite sex" Wouldnt have guessed afterdawn is THIS retarded. Step in to the real world and stop with the discriminatory prejudices. To the topic. Porn has been vital for VHS, Internet, DVD... And it will continue to be like that for all future formats/sources. We have this urge to tamper with our genitalia, it'll go nowhere. No Pope not anyone can do anything about it. Screw thee!

229.6.2005 5:16

Hi there, Well I rather see a guy do his personal business at home with his PSP than to rape woman and/or our children ! My 2 cents...

239.6.2005 5:27

Hey I am not a rapiest... I was just kidding can you people not take a joke???

249.6.2005 5:45

"The PSP For The Pervert On The Move" Don't have ANYTHING against porn but come on, i can just see it now people on the bus and the folk behind having a good old look over the shoulder.

259.6.2005 6:29

PPL saying that porn is bad for the psp,"whats wrong with you?". i mean porn has been around for years. Its on VHS,DVD,TV, not to mention mobile phones. Porn is porn. porn is sex. sex is human nature. How did you get in this world?! at the end of the day, porn is going nowhere. People who watch porn arent perverts, Perverts are those who do "stuff" without others permission. If you say you dont think,watch or have ever thought about porn then your a liar and/or one of the VERY few people in this world,lol.

269.6.2005 7:53

lol man yall are tripping. Porn is not for perverts. I bet if a fine female bends over in the store with a nice butt, heavy chest with cleavage showing, or a nice pair of legs, ever real man here with testosterone is gone to take a look. Maybe two looks. >LOL The man that can honestly say that he would turn his head if a women they were attracted to a female and her boobs accidently popped out of her shirt while she was running through a store, well you are a pervert. Or maybe he is gay. LOL I am going to get me a good look at those tits. LOL

stig1984 "Porn is porn. porn is sex. sex is human nature. How did you get in this world?!" Porn is not sex. Porn is a substitute for sex. No woman ever got pregnant by just looking at pictures or videos. I'm not down on porn. As to porn for PSP? Porn has ended up on just about every format it possibly could. There's so much of it out there that kids WILL find it if they seek it out. IMHO it's up to parents to filter what kids are exposed to, not media companys. PSP porn? BFD. High tech wanking is still just wanking... Enjoy yourself ;-)

289.6.2005 9:41

Well i can see MONEY/UMD part of this all, makes perfect sense. But it is still odd that porn will be available to view on this gaming console. Given i've once had the paris hilton video on my Gabe Boy SP, it didn't get there by any legal means. Blah, burgers and fries here i come. -jcase

The desire to mate with the opposite sex is a basic human need. Anything else would not be a need, it would be ... something else. Don't be so sensitive.

Ballslap, worry. Step in to the real world? Wonder which world that might be? Dodgy

3210.6.2005 6:30

Thepastor: To mate = to have sex, that is how I perceived it. To have sex with the same gender is just as much of a basic need as it is between opposite ones. To breed, now that is a different story. About being sensitive.. Dont you think it must be a tremendous agony to face these kind of attitudes when you're for example a young person finding one's sexuality? It's these kind of small, every day stuff that adds it up. I wouldnt wanna start anything here, but your critique for my "sensitivity" resembles a form of ignorance. ptwenty: Unfortunately your being nosy isn't clever enough to be witty.

3310.6.2005 12:36

@Ballslap This is neither the time nor the place. You bringing this fight into this forum is the demonstration of ignorance. I can care less who or what you screw. Your original statement called Afterdawn "retarted" and suggested they "stop with the discriminatory prejudices." Did you read the article? It was written by cd-rw.org and sourced from Wired. Afterdawn had absolutely nothing to do with it, other than to allow you to read it on their website. Your anger is mis-directed, and in a place where it is inappropriate. I simply attempted to point out to you that you were being overly sensitive. Your definition of mate and my definition of mate are both correct. To mate = to procreate. But who cares?

Wow, what a worthless argument. People are going to get porn anyway, they might as well make money off the PSP. Hell, downlaod free pics and movies, then convert them to PSP formats and put them on memory stick. Hey, free portable porn on your MS.

3510.6.2005 20:50

MMMMMMM...... Porn!!!!!!!!!! Now another reson to Love MY PSP.

The xbox 360 and PS3 can play dvds, so you can play any porn you want on dvd I think that UMD porn is a great way for them to boost the UMD sales, and to make it a popular format.

3811.6.2005 13:02

Now, what would be kind of fun in a dumb way ;) is if you could get the PSP to pop out the video disc, and have it shoot across the floor flying saucer style, at the moment the pop shot occurs on the screen! LOL

Porn bad for the PSP? I think not! I don't HAVE to buy every game or movie that comes out for the PSP. But the fact is the more popular and versital the PSP becomes the better for all of us it becomes, as users we get more movies, games, accesories, and programs for our PSP that we do want. As internet users we owe a lot to the porn indusry for their help. We got faster internet access for all the porn movies and pics that people download I know I like my faster pings when gaming. Porn...cool now diry old men get to enjoy the PSP too. Now with that said someone give me a good fps game quick!!
