I’m always surprised by the lack of porn on modern consoles, especially with all the, err, “input possibilities” that motion controls give the user. It’s not for a lack of trying though, if Sony Computer Entertainment executive producer Pete Smith’s recent interview with Eurogamer is any indication. Smith detailed a Kama Sutra game for EyeToy that he rejected, calling it the weirdest game he was ever pitched.
“We were talking about it back at the office. Obviously we didn’t sign it and it never ever saw the light of day. But we were going, how exactly would we QA it?” Smith said. “You can imagine these two big hairy testers going, ‘No, you’re the bitch tonight.'”
Sounds like a good time to me! Unfortunately, we will never get our hands or genitalia on what could have been an EyeToy unit seller. Smith isn’t a total corporate prude, however. Like of all us, perhaps he sometimes likes to unzip in front of his PlayStation 3 and enjoy himself. Or am I alone in this? … awwwkwwwaaaard!
“In one sense I think, God, I wish it would have been done,” Smith said. “We could have maybe got some celebrity endorsements and stuff like that.”
You know, because celebrities love hot, virtual sex as much as the next lonely, virginal game enthusiast! At last, we will never be able to unlock the sex-related PS3 trophies that we have longed dreamed about. Here’s hoping Sony wises up and publishes a Kama Sutra Wonderbook title in the future.
