No Sex Please, We're Microsoft

Microsoft 2

theodp (442580) writes "Microsoft's Kinect has been out for less than two months and already there's an adult company looking to produce a 3-D sex game for the Xbox 360 console (PG-13ish YouTube demo). But Microsoft immediately shot down any speculation that the game will pass the certification process. 'This isn't the first example of a technology being used in ways not intended by its manufacturer, and it won't be the last," a Microsoft spokesman said in a statement. 'Microsoft did not authorize or license its technology for this use. Xbox is a family friendly games and entertainment console and does not allow Adults Only (AO) content to be certified for use on its platform, and would not condone this type of game for Kinect.'"

I don't see this changing until the geek can convince someone - anyone - that he can introduce mature sexual content into a game without making it pornographic.

I can see this going to a PC platform (1)

since the drivers for the kinect are available for Windows. Hell... add Internet connectivity and this could turn out to be cybersex 2.0. Tie it to a homebrew WoW or Everquest server and things can get really interesting ... Here we go again the start of another billion dollar industry.
