Adult Only 'SexBox' Console Revealed in Filing

BOOM widget 124158Brace yourself, because this one's gonna be a doozy. Integrated circuit manufacturer Silicon Xtal has filed a trademark for an adult-only video game console dubbed SexBox.

The system is "comprised of computer hardware with unique user controls" and plays "Adult Only rated (AO) video game software titles," going by the trademark listing that was uncovered and republished by Siliconera.

The description further specified that SexBox could also offers access to "associated AO content and entertainment" through "interactive adult communities," "massive multiplayer online games," "movie rentals" and "more as technology evolves."

Silicon Xtal is apparently no stranger to the video game market, as it claims that Microsoft's Xbox 360 and some Nvidia video cards use its "SXC circuit designs."

Current console makers Nintendo, Microsoft and Sony do not allow Adult Only rated software to be released on their platforms. The PC has no such restrictions.

Amusingly, "SeXbox" was the phrase FOX News used during a segment that erroneously attacked BioWare's action-RPG Mass Effect for featuring graphic sex, a report that publisher EA labeled "a new level of recklessness." Cooper Lawrence, who harshly criticized the game despite never playing it, later admitted she "misspoke".
