Nintendo News | Wii is the Ultimate Porno Portal

By Jorge Ba-oh 27.02.2007 35

In an increasing bid to shield children from the evils of the communications world, Californian based faith group are planning to attack with the Wii and other gaming devices with its capabilities to be a way of accessing adult content.

According to a press release found by Kotaku, "the Nintendo Wii gaming console has a wiittle porn problem. That's right; this seemingly innocent family game console has a dirty little secret. It has the dubious ability to access pornography via the internet and most parents are not aware of this fact".

The releases stresses that devices with internet capability, such as the Nintendo Wii, carry the potential for children to access material with parents unaware of the machine's functionality. The report also suggests that although children can be monitored at home, at "airports, Starbucks, schools, and even entire cities give people the opportunity to log on the internet with a Wi-Fi device like the Wii".

The group want to encourage parents to be in the know about what their kids have access to, acknowledging that although the Wii is a fun console for a variety of different ages, it can be problematic when a young child sits at his local coffee house with one hand under a table and a portable TV and Wii beside him.

I must remember that next time I have my Wii with me at the airport.

Oh yeah, totally man.

I want to take a Wii, portable screen, Wii remote, sensor bar, to fucking starbucks and watch people watch me watch porn. That's SO going to happen. Smilie

It's blatantly started by someone who got caught pulling the chain-chomp and said "errm, our son, was watching this! Alerty the media"

OH MY GOD!

let that be a lesson to you Nintendo - try as you might to protect yourself - the media will do all it takes to make a case about porn/bad lanugage/graphics/mature themes - etc.

I am SO taking my Wii to a Panera/Starbucks/Coffee shop right now - JUST to look at porn

Wii = The New Mac "I can see parts of a woman I never knew existed with the zoom feature of the WiiMote"

I hate the media so -FUCKIN- much.Smilie

What concers me is how does a kid know about PORN... kids dont know this stuff unless they have seen their parents or realtives do it.. so they copy them.... thats how kids work, they see someone do sommething and they do it....Smilie


You can get porn mags in my local Newsagent. I think we should ban newsagents. And the internet. Fucking internet...

ugh! not once did they state how Nintendo has done all it can with proctections that have been a pain in our asses to prevent things like this from happening to "7 year olds looking at porn - while the parents aren't looking"

Its the parent's fuckin issue! read the manual and learn to use the parental control feature on this sucker! GOOD FREAKIN LORD!

Not once did they say anything about it.
Not-once.

Rooolllll OUT!

This is ridiculous, the only thing i like to shake when playing the Wii is my Wii mote and nothing else lol.

But on a serious note Opera could make sure there is parental controls on the full version that kick in automatically if the Parental Controls are switched on, that and make sure browsing is made easier than what it is at present,-

*Check out Wiiminder.com for better tabbed browsing on Wii than opera's trial version offers.

This is absolute stupidity. Why do these people attack Nintendo for doing what the Internet has already done? The youth of today is already corrupted - Nintendo can neither help nor hinder that. Silly men.


Screwing the rules since 1989.

I'd understand this a lot more if the DS had a built in browser, but kids can easily access adult material in the home without the need for a Wii - through the net, late night TV, their own friends.

Just another chance to attack a feature for home consoles and gaming - the PSP was barely mentioned in the list, nor other home consoles, just Wii.

It's probably because in the eyes of the media Nintendo's consoles are still the kid's ones. No-one cares if anyone over the age of 12 looks at porn, but if they're younger the media explodes. It's funny, because I doubt anyone over the age of 12 would be insane enough to buy a PS3 to be honest...

The fact that Wii draws so much attention and generally large amount of users in general makes it a much more likely candidate to be highlighted in these kinds of things, although it still doesn't excuse ignorance and idiocy.

also they said Wi-fi devices like the Wii, not Wii specifically in referring to Starbucks, airports comments etc.

I personally wonder why pornography, or at least very mild forms of it are even censored from kids, but that's an entirely different discussion.

Why are parents so desperate to shove the blame elsewhere so that everyone overlooks there bad parenting?

-Have you any idea what it's like to be a Fembot living in a Manbot's Manputer's world?
-What?

lmao, thats hilarious. sad, but u know.

I have a few words to say... it hard being on top......

I see all these people insulting the Nintendo corporation because of the lack of mature content. Yet there is something about Nintendo (at least their games) that strikes a certain unadulterated feeling of joy!!!  Pokemon Y - 1048-9263-5562

The PSP is the porn hub console, so guy who i know has a PSP, has a shitload of porn movies on it.


Mike Gee of iZINE said, "...The Verve, as he [Richard Ashcroft] promised, had become the greatest band in the world. Most of the critics agreed with him. Most paid due homage. The Verve were no longer the question mark or the clich. They were the statement and the definition."

Awesome phrase.

Well, I've noticed that the internet you use is the issue. If your internet blocks that type of stuff on the computer, then it will block it on the Wii, because it's using the same internet.


I'm going to pull my chain-chomp at Starbucks right now.....

The former top user was Keven! You'd probably give birth to yourself 1000 times over until you sprout wings to fly away into the fading sun, that or you'd just turn into a lesbian. Who knows @_@ - L, 12/06/09

Can't these people just fuck off!? I'm sick of these religious morons.

First the DS with pedohiles and now this, starting to tick me off. I would assume most children have their Wiis set up on the main T.V in the living room or something, can be easily monitered there. So its up to the parents to stop their kids...

Any kids that uses lynx would know about porn. As all the women that come flocking to them would ask them to star in a porn film with them!

Girls have cooties

The wii internet at the moment seems so badly done, that even Sony have the right to laugh at it.

Enoch Powell was right, and you know it.

Erm, who masturbates at Starbucks with a Wii and a portable TV?

Yeah I'm not too sure why it seems to be the general opinion that seeing some woman's tits is going to have an adverse psychological effect on your child. It's not like the first time you see the sex education video at school you say 'OH MY GOD, I'M SCARRED FOR LIFE! Smilie'. In fact you've probably already looked at loads of porn by then. The only people who seem to care are old people
