I thought of this article when kyo posted

I am all for PS3, even if it is highly expensive, in shortage, and won't release any "newFolder" that I can watch in blueRay.
About the PS3. Seems there is a lot of irony he didn't (or maybe did) realise when posting that!



Sony, Shunning Porn Producers, May Hurt Blu-ray Sales

Sony may have shot itself in the foot by resolving not to permit its disc duplicators to produce "adult content" on Blu-ray discs, several consumer electronics and DVD websites observed Thursday. One adult-film producer, Digital Playground, told the British online publication The Inquirer, that it had decided to switch from Blu-ray to HD DVD because "Sony has said to the replicators that if you replicate adult, you'll lose your license." The Inquirer quoted Jake Richter, an analyst at Jon Peddie Research as saying in a report to clients that many people believe that Sony's Betamax video tape format died because the adult movie industry was barred from using it. "Is Sony doomed to repeat one of the mistakes of the past? It seems like that may be the case," he wrote. Likewise, PC World magazine commented that Sony ought to "remember what happened more than two decades ago, when the adult film industry was forced to produce its content on VHS, and not Sony's Betamax." However, Martin Lynch of the IDG news service wrote that some porn produces are in fact finding Blu-ray disc manufacturers who are willing to work with them, adding, "You can say a lot of things about Sony but stupid isn't one of them. Well, most of the time anyway. There is no way that Sony can ignore the boost that porn can give the Blu-ray format."

Actually I read the issue isn't that porn isn't allowed on Blu-Ray, just that it's much easier to produce on HD DVD. You can't use any Blu-Ray producing plant which also produces Disney movies, which is almost all of them, so you have to spend money on new facilities.

I would personally love HD DVD to win the format wars, I really have lots of issues with Blu Ray, but just wait and see I guess.

I have never read anywhere that Blu Ray actually has an 'issue' so what's up with it?
