The addition of Internet Explorer to Microsoft's video game console has given it access to the internet... all of the internet. As far as parents are concerned, the Xbox 360 is now much more than a family fun device. For along with IE comes all the "colourful" nooks and crannies of the world wide web. Microsoft, of course, is trying its best to reassure parents, reminding them that they can turn on parental restrictions at any time.
YouPorn Relishes The MomentAs for YouPorn, the website wasted no time alerting its fans. This was taken from their blog: "Gamers and free porn lovers around the world rejoice! Thanks at long last to the introduction of Internet Explorer for XBox, you can now tap in to and stream all your favorite free YouPorn videos right from your XBox. Whether you’re pwning n00bs in CoD: Modern Warfare 3, annihilating Bullymong in Borderlands 2, or taking the Saints deep in Madden NFL 13, you’re never more than a few simple controller clicks away from being face deep in hot free porn."
Microsoft ReactsHere's Microsoft's statement: "To be clear, we are adding Internet Explorer to Xbox Live, not specific adult content providers like YouPorn or any other specific website content. Additionally, we give members and parents the option to turn this feature on or off for their accounts. Access to Internet Explorer for all Child accounts is blocked by default."
For now the web browser is only accessible to a select few console owners testing the beta version, but once it's ready the service will be available to all.
