Hardcore porn will be coming to the Xbox 360 through the…ahem…backdoor of a forthcoming update to the platform.
The addition of the Internet Explorer browser to Microsoft’s home gaming console will give access to adult content through the machine, something that leading porn site YouPorn.com have been quick to champion.
However, Microsoft have been equally quick to clarify that access is an indirect result of putting the entire web at the fingertips of 360 gamers (if their fingers aren’t already busy elsewhere) and can be easily blocked using adult control features.
“To be clear, we are adding Internet Explorer to Xbox Live, not specific adult content providers like YouPorn or any other specific website content,” it told gaming blog Kotaku.
“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.”
Internet Explorer is expected to land with a forthcoming update to the Xbox 360 dashboard in the coming weeks.
