International Digital Times: Why PlayStation 4?

Corey Price: We like to stay ahead of the curve and offer our users the ability to view porn from all platforms!

Is the company currently taking any steps toward preparation of a dedicated Pornhub app that would be available for download on the PlayStation Network?

We're looking into a number of options to work with Sony in developing the first adult app for PS4.

Does the company plan to charge users for access to whatever Pornhub content is made available to PS4 users? If so, will membership grant access on both PC and PS4?

Absolutely not, we pride ourselves on being able to offer our users the ability to watch pornhub for free across all platforms, including consoles!

Sony Releases Incredible, Nostalgic Playstation Ad

There's nothing to not like in this amazing video by Sony, taking a look back through the history of its Playstation.

Sony back to it's best with PlayStation 4

Image
Sony come out in February with all guns blazing. They said PS4 is for the gamers, for games, for developers, for online play etc etc.

Remote play is a bad swear word when thinking PS3 but I have just got Call of Duty Ghosts for PS4 and on the back of the box... "Remote Play Supported" what? Before the console is even out? Brilliant.

Vita has just updated to firmware 3.00. Vita can now connect to your... wait I don't have it yet! Sony really are well prepared for the PS4. Battlefield 4 is confirmed to be ready for remote play also.

Personally I've never been so pumped for a new console. It's now become clear that PS4 is the lead console in development, this is huge, PS3 has only been pushed by few that are not in house.

Epic games are about to give details of a new PS4 game as well as other games to be confirmed on 14th November, the day before the PS4 hits the US.

Not for a long time have I felt justified saying that old marketing slogan,

"Never underestima…
