Has Sony Killed Blu-ray with No-porn Policy?

A blu ray disc

Sony does it again in 2007. Sony has constantly made history by releasing their own storage technologies that never became industry leaders. Let’s make a rundown. Betamax? Check! MD? Check! What next? Blu-ray?

In today’s world of HD (high definition) video, you’ve got to have something for the adult movie industry. Sony isn’t making it happen for blu-ray the same way they banned production of porn in Beta, which apparently, was a (if not “the”) cause of it’s demise in the Beta vs. VHS. Never mind Beta’s supposed superior technology.

And look at how vague Sony hands out the policy:

Sony Corp. said it will not work with the adult film industry to help put their movies on its Blu-ray Disc format, although it will not try to stop them completely.

The company will not allow its disc replicating subsidiary, Sony DADC, to handle adult film titles, it said this week.

So what does this tell us? Bootleg Blu-ray porn?

It seems that with this move, Sony will again be doing the same thing they did with Beta. The adult movie industry is a leading player in the video market. Sony just took away their potential revenue with its decision and gave HD DVD the upper hand in the high definition storage slugfest.

Since Sony banned replicating porn in blu-ray, this leaves no other alternative for adult movie industry but to go with HD-DVD.

    Blu Ray will become the dominant platform. The porn biz is actually quite small and thier number crunching is atrocious (about 10 percent of thier advertised revenues). Sony is in control…..I’m sure they are not shaking in thier boots. DO THE MATH

    I appreciate the comment but this is a dated article. I’ve written a few other articles on the topic. You might want to see the “Related Articles” portion.

    I understand that the porn business has become a non-factor unlike the olden Beta vs. VHS days. I also understand that based on sales, Sony’s Blu-ray has pulled ahead.

    are you guys joking porn or the lack of it may not be enough to kill blue ray buy the porn industry drives a lot of industries e.g. the internet was built by the porn industry the security the video etc. was all paid for by porn well see soon enough anyway

    I love re-reading old articles about how people theorized Blu-ray would’ve lost or made a bad move and that it could’ve been a vital action for their success, even though as of revent HD-DVD is dead and Blu-ray triumphant.

    The more serious and Anti-Blu-ray the articles are, the more pathetic they are, not saying this is one of them but damn, people should look around to see how many were Pro-HD-DVD and said Blu-ray is the next Beta-max, It’s sad.

    I think Sony never really told the industry no but no that blu-ray is the clear winner or the format wars I think we will be seeing a lot more adult films on blu-ray real soon.
