HD-DVD has porn.. ive already see the video cover for it..

i guess all those porn addicts won't be switching to blu-ray

I believe Sony is thinking that they will win this war if they don't allow Porn on blu-ray.. from all the worried parents will then buy a PS3 / Blu-ray player.
Well let me tell you Sony.. VERY FEW worried parents will be buying a blu-ray player, just because it doesn't allow porn.

Bye bye Blu-ray! The porn business is huge and can make or break a format, it certainly gave DVD a good boost when that came out!

Porn was a huge part in making VHS a success.

Sony can't seem to learn from past mistakes.
If I was a shareholder, I would be right ****ed off.

Blu-ray is doomed.

The support from the porn industry was one of the deciding factors in the success of VHS over the superior BetaMax format.

yeah, the reason VHS beat BetaMAX was because the porn industry offered their videos on VHS instead of BetaMAX it was in a show i watched the other day (no it wasn't porn :shiftyninja: ) about the history of the porn business (no Ron Jeremy wasn't in it. LOL :D) It was either some BBC show or Discovery/History channel show.

But there are more (important) deciding factors in this race apart from porn.
