Smuggled footage of Fallout 4 demo finds an unusual home: Pornhub

New, 18 comments

A fan campaign to spread footage of Fallout 4's gameplay has found an unusual, if effective host: the free X-rated video site PornHub.

The video, filmed behind closed doors at Gamescom, has been taken down quickly after being uploaded to other video streaming sites. At Pornhub, however the video is still on the site, having gathered 142,000 views in a day.

Its title and tags are meant to disguise the video as any of the garden-variety porn the site offers elsewhere in five- or 10-minute bites. This video appears to have been shot incognito from between two seats at the demonstration. It's about seven minutes long. There are frequent exposure changes and the audio is bad, but committed Fallout fans can make out some features of how the game will play once it launches Nov. 10 for PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One.

We're not linking the site here, even with an NSFW warning, because there are tons of hardcore porn thumbnails surrounding the video. We've never watched porn ever and won't start now, OK. (Sorry, our moms read us, too.)

In all seriousness, the larger issue is the ongoing hide-and-seek game of fans hosting or distributing a file of this video and Bethesda Softworks swatting it. The game's Sugarbombed forum has, since Monday, posted links to file hosting and streaming sites, watching them go dead one by one. Pornhub appears to be the longest-lasting home for the video, having made it a full 24 hours.

The video is titled "HIDDEN CAMERA SHOWS AUDIENCE TEASED BY BIG BUTT MAN IN TIGHTS LIVE," which is true, from a certain point of view. POV also is one of the video's tags along with "Big Ass" and "HD."
