Default Adult Movies!

There seems to be lots of Banter about which format has won the "war" in the porn industry, and this being crucial to the overall "winning" of the format war.

But it seems to me that both formats have had very few releases in adult movies, and that it shall not be the deciding factor that so many seem to think it is.

Am I right? Or is it all about the porn!!!??

I'm fairly sure you're right. Porn was a big issue in the VHS/Beta days because there really was no reliable, alternative source like the Internet that would grant you immediate access to the subgenres (however weird they may be) that would fit your fancy.

As well, as of right now, HD DVD does have a slight advantage with its adult movie collection, but it doesn't seem like that's making any significant contribution to that side's campaign.

The majority of porn movies, particularly the older ones, were shot with poor quality equipment. I don't believe the Blu-Ray or HD-DVD version of these movies offer a huge advantage over the standard DVD.

I'm no expert or anything, but I have read that in japan they are now doing porn on blu-ray, I would say that this will happen in the states very soon.. However I don't see this being the end all be all to the war.. Porn is very expensive now, with blu-ray in the mix will increase prices. It will be a long time for the market to coagulate.

Ell, I personally hope it does not become wide spread on the blu ray format...though that may be a bit nieve...and a little unpopular!!

Ha, as far as I'm concerned HD-DVD can have it all. And if someones really hard up enough to pay the outrageous price that it would go for on Blu, why wouldn't they just get a hooker lol.

The reason why Adult movies have no say in this war is because you can log into the internet and get free porn up the wazoo.....literally.

Porn doesn't matter worth a crap in this format war. It mattered in the VHS/Betamax war simply because it was the only way for people to get porn at the time. We now have the internet, pay-per-view, and DVD porn(which a lot of people would say is good enough). Porn's influence in this war is so insignificant that it almost need not be mentioned.

Yeah I read an article about all the porn execs saying that it didnt matter in this format war, even they knew it. And blu-ray does have porns now too. When I get home I'll post a link to this one site you can buy them at, they had a ton more than I had ever seen on most sites, I was surprised.

But screw those prices, its all about bangbros and realitykings

Can you honestly see yourself spending between 50.00 to 75.00 bucks for porn in HD and 10 mins later aftern looking at it you are kicking yourself for spending that much on porn in HD.....

Blu-ray seems to be the chosen format, from all the news, for pr0n. Hopefully, everyone will be Blu soon.
