The 360 has very good parental control features. What do you think?
Should the 360 video marketplace have an adult section?
besides there is plenty of other ways to get that content
Microsoft would not want to deal with that
since gaming is looked at as something children do by non-gamers it would be looked down upon very badly by news organizations and would give them horrible press
it would be a disaster
There is already a box for this for people too stupid to figure out how to find pornography on the internet, which is a mindblowing kind of stupidity I don't know if I can wrap my head around.
And yeah, as much as Microsoft wants to be representative of the, I hate myself for using this term, hardcore gaming demographic that is mostly composed of chronically masturbating males, they wouldn't touch this kind of publicity with a ten-foot lubricated pole.
Personally I think no it shouldn't and I am sure it never will especially with Microsoft trying to broaden the user base and get more casual players and movie renters and they want the 360 to be a family oriented media experience.It just isn't necessary...they have plenty of movies and if you want porn you can get it elsewhere but I have to say if they did I am sure they would get a nice little return in the form of money because there would be a ton of people who would use it to watch adult movies, too many.
Plus there would be no real way to work around the license issue. When the d/l movies are limited to a 24 hour window it's pointless.
I was reading an article where it talked about all the PPV view adult movies in hotels, and it said the avg time a movie was on in a hotel room was like 12 min.
Kinda pointless really.
^ funny article.
I dont think there should be an adult section. I doubt many parents use the parental controls since there are always outcrys over violence in games. So if parents buy whatever game for their kids regardless of EA rating, they probably aren't taking the time to set up parental controls on the 360.
If by adult contend you mean Playboy I would say no but stuff like Howard Stern on demand which has some nudity but no actual sex would be fine in my eyes. Also the parental controls are there to stop people from having there children see anything but I doubt this will ever happen
