There Will Be No Kinect Sex Game

ThriXXX, the developer behind a title claiming to be Kinect's first sex game, won't be doing anything of the sort after platform holder Microsoft decided to block its release.

"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" a Microsoft spokesperson has told IGN.

ThriXXX was of course working on stuff anything but family friendly, as its project involved using the motion-controlled camera to grab cartoon girls' cans.

It looked incredibly stupid, not to mention crass. Still, if you thought it looked amazing, ThriXXX's developers are still hoping to add Kinect support to its PC games sometime in 2011.

    'Incredibly stupid not to mention crass'

    Hasn't a japanese equivalent technology been shown on here multiple times? I personally don't have a problem with it.

    I can already imagine more clones of this software and technology side-lining karaoke bar-style brothels, where you get a booth and this virtual toy all through Japan to Thailand, and other parts of the world where sexual activity isn't considered frigid or more liberal than the western world.

    This reminds me a lot of Star Trek's Holodeck.. we're getting close - we already have computers that fit in our hands (Palm-decks, iPhones), touch-access screens (iApple-Anything), 1 touch communication systems (bluetooth headsets), and the list goes on:

    I have to admit that even I think its a bit sad when I recognised the game from the screens the other day.

    Since kinect has been hacked, thrixxx will doubtless be able to release the latest version with a generic motion control option that will respond to hacked kinects
