IF YOU THINK the XBox360 lacked a killer app, well you are wrong, it has one, HD porn.

If you think that it was just a fluke, check out HDHE, High Def Home Entertainment, a company that also does a lot of adult content. Along with Arrow Productions, they bring you Deep Throat in HD. On the XBox360. Only on the XBox360, at least until there is something else in retail that can play it.

They had a side by side with the DVD version of the film, and the quality difference was clear and obvious. In fact, it was quite astounding. The story behind this is that almost all copies of the movie out there since the 1970s were done off of a single old print, with scratchy frames, glitches and miserable washed out colors.

Arrow was in the middle of cleaning it up when they found the original masters, so they threw out what they had done and used the clean copy. They ended up with the first new copy of the movie in decades, all in glorious HD. For the XBox360. Only for the XBox360.

All in all, it probably won't qualify as a museum quality restoration, nor go down in history as a milestone, but it is interesting. It also could be a lot worse, just look at the ASCII version (Sort of not safe for work). µ
