Porn Sites Start Adapting to Wii

Remember when parents were freaking out because kids were able to load pornography onto their PSPs via memory stick? The pornography industry goes where the money is, and right now the hot item is Nintendo's Wii, which just-so-coincidentally launched a web browser just before Christmas. In the meantime, some sites have already started adapting their designs to fit the slightly skewed resolution.

Ars Technica was alerted by a reader that a certain website that is absolutely not safe for work and you'll have to track down through a mysterious link elsewhere, recently made an alteration to its design when a Wii user approaches. I, um, "confirmed" this information with my own Wii, discovering a link that only appears when accessing via Wii.

The story is too old to be commented.

Most Nintendo users are children. How can they say they aren't targeting their porn towards children after this??

Its a lot easier to use the Wiimote with my left hand, Rather than a mouse. Haha

Targeting Children? Are you kidding? First off most pornography sites require some sort of age verification (not that I would know). And while sure none are perfect and there are many easy to access materials that require no such verification..... it's primarily the job of the parent to restrict and monitor the content that their children views. Don't attack the website for trying to market their product in a way that would appeal to adult Wii users.

The majority of INTERNET users on the Wii are not children. The internet channel has to be seperately downloaded by a Wii setup on a wireless network.

Last I checked, most children aren't able to setup a wireless network on their own.... those that can, probably can find adult material on the internet regardless of whether it is on the Wii or on a PC.

Much ado over nothing.

I think where MicroGamer is coming from is the fact that it is, for some people, morally wrong to establish a Wii-centric porno site. Certainly it's not illegal or anything like that, but it is in bad taste. The fact is that the Wii is being promoted and established as a family friendly entertainment device, and is now being converted by some into something that goes completely against that image.
