Microsoft Says ‘No Thank You’ to Kinect Groping Game Idea

Microsoft is not having any part of what Australian adult entertainment company ThriXXX plans for Kinect. Last week the company posted a video of a groping application that used the Kinect camera to touch the naughty bits of women. This week Microsoft has publicly offered a "no thank you" to the company, telling the Los Angeles Times that a sex game is not a great fit for a device that is designed to be family friendly.

"This isn’t the first example of a technology being used in ways not intended by its manufacturer, and it won’t be the last," Microsoft told the Los Angeles Times. "Microsoft did not authorize or license its technology for this use. 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.”

Of course, hackers are clever people, and they’ll always find a way to use technology and software in a way that might not necessarily be appropriate.

You can check out the video here, but is definitely NSFW.

    They have to officially come out against this, but with the open drivers we’ll see PC compatible grope games, and possible worse, in no time. Rapeman, kinect edition anyone?

    I don’t have the link handy, but this reminds me of an amusing Xbox story out of Japan.

    Apparently over there XBox has not done very well, so Microsoft was courting the more ‘adult’ developers and it was slowly becoming the console of choice for soft H games… until Kinect came out and they switched their possition and attacked their partners for ruining thier family friendly image and cutting support for several games in development.
