Sony says no to porn

Yesterday we reported that Sony in Japan could be looking to push sales of their 3-D tellies with help from the porn industry, who were about to thrust the first ever 3-D home release with two of their top grot stars, but in the prudish old West, Sony don’t seem to be so keen to get into bed with the muck merchants. Certainly if Vivid Entertainment’s experience was anything to go by.

The muck merchants approached Sony with an idea to have streaming porn (locked for kids, obviously) as part of its online content for the PS3, as a compliment to its existing roster in conventional flicks, but were given short shrift from the electronics giant. The big boring squares.

‘We started conversations with Sony but they didn't lead anywhere,’ said Vivid founder and co-chairman Steven Hirsch, who said he would be more than happy to talk to Microsoft about a similar service on Xbox 360. ‘If we could get further than we did with Sony (with Microsoft), we'd be very interested.’
