Xbox One Vs. PS4: Which is better for porn?

Which next generation console is better suited for porn consumption

Consoles are about much more than gaming

There was a time when gaming consoles where all about gaming and little more. Even the previous generation launched with fairly meager media playback credentials. Support for streaming DNLA content came a while after both the XBOX 360 and PS3 were launched. But all that has changed. Gaming are competing to become the centralized hub where you go to enjoy all forms of entertainment, be it audio, video or interactive.

The porn industry will without a doubt find a way to muscle in on the next generation console craze. It goes without saying that neither Microsoft of Sony will entertain the idea of letting porn apps appear in their respective app stores, but both consoles offer potential back doors for porn consumption on your favorite gaming device.

The web browsers

Both the Xbox One and Playstation 4 feature web browsers which are quite adept at rendering HTML5 web pages. The porn industry is well aware of this and are busy converting their content to be compatible with HTML5 browsers. In fact, many adult sites already work with the browsers included with the XBOX 360 and PS3. Many porn tubes have embraced HTML5, and now we are seeing more and more live cam sites doing the same. Chaturbate, Sexier and Flirt4Free all work very well on game consoles with web browsers. Therefore, it’s official, porn has officially made the jump from your computer monitor to the large screen TV in your man cave.

I have no doubt that both the Xbox One and PS4 will offer a decent rendering of adult websites, but for the time being, the Xbox One might have a slight advantage over the PS4 because of it’s voice recognition capabilities. I like the idea of telling my next gen console to “load pornhub.com” and having a nice collection of porn appear on the screen. And let’s face it, this is one application where hands free control might be a real benefit.

DNLA support for video streaming

Streaming video from a DNLA source is a real mixed bag with gaming consoles. Both the XBOX 360 and Playstation 3 were very capable media streamers that played just about any file you threw at them. Unfortunately, the Xbox One DLNA support is incomplete (as of the time of this writing) and the PS4 support is missing in action alltogether. Both companies have pledge to review their plans for media streaming and it may well appear with a later system update. But for the time being, you current generation gaming consoles are your go to machines for streaming porn.

In a pinch, I strongly recommend the Western Digital Play media streamer. It’s fully DNLA compliant and plays just about any video file format out there. A gem of a device.

Kinect vs. the Playstation Eye

Both the xBox One and PS4 feature cameras for use with their respective consoles. Microsoft includes this option as a standard feature with every purchase, whereas Sony sell its camera as an add-on peripheral.

Cameras are great, but the devil is in the details. And in this case, Microsoft wins hands down on many different levels. First off, they have a full HD camera with great motion detection features. When it comes to interactive sex, resolution matters and this camera has the specifications to perform. But that’s only half the story.

More and more independent webcam models are using Skype to connect with their customers. And it just so happens that Microsoft owns Skype and has included a very nice client with the Xbox One. In fact, it’s probably the best Skype client available. And the software is an app, so look for new features to be added on a regular basis. The quality of the video is stunning (assuming decent bandwidth) and the cameras ability to follow its subject around the room is really cool. Webcam sex fans are going to love watching live sex shows on their big screens like never before. And for those seeking Skype sex contacts, there are plenty of video dating sites that now cater to that very niche.

As far as Sony goes, they have a decent camera as well. But unfortunately, I don’t expect Microsoft to license Skype to it’s competitor. Who knows, maybe they will partner with Yahoo or Google for video chat capabilities.

Conclusion

Before drawing any final conclusions, it’s important to remember that both the Xbox One and Playstation 4 are very new products that have both shipped with early versions of their respective firmwares. We are still early in the first quarter in what promises to be a long game. Both these next generation consoles will mature in different ways over the next few years.

Having said that, the Xbox One has a slight edge out of the gate, mainly due to it’s support for Skype, inclusion of a decent camera and fantastic HTML5 support in the web browser. Throw in hands free navigation and it’s porn credentials are somewhat solid out of the gate. The Playstation 4 also offers a decent web browser, but falls short in terms of video chat with third party services.

Both the PS4 and Xbox One offer incomplete DNLA support out of the box. Whoever provides this vital capability might well tip the porn consumption scales in their favor. And let’s face it, lots of people watch porn. Even in the UK.
