That is a pretty stupid move by Sony considering the money involved.

Is it necessary to have high-definition Porn? I always thought DVD was a bit of a stretch to tell the truth...

Blu Ray discs are also going to fail because of unavailability.

HD DVD is associated with the 360, which I think is superior to the PS3 (just my opinion)

And the Blu Ray is with the PS3.

Porn has ALWAYS been on the forefront of technology, VHS, internet, DVD, and now...

Like it or not they've pushed these forms of technology in our households.

A friend of mine designs videogames, we were having this conversation, he was telling me about how many companies will follow porn's lead.

Sony failed with Betamax because they didn't allow porn on it.

So they will do.


The first company of that scale that really sticks to it's "values".

I don't like any next-gen system at the moment. I'm waiting for the killer games and several years of price drops first

I believe you may be right. I've never watched porn on beta-max. In fact, I've never watched anything on beta-max. Beta-max = lol, pwnd. Just like Blu-Ray. Sony tries to push their pompous agenda and gets shut down.

Actually, Beta-max was a success in the fact that it was used professionally!

Just about everything for television was done on Beta (shows, video, commercials, etc.) because of its higher quality.

VHS took off because it was cheap!

I do not know enough about Blu-Ray really........or HD Porn.
