    I'm sure most people do, check you have the essential "tools" and that any windows are closed and no-one can hear you moan...


    Seriously though, Sony did the same thing for Betamax. And look how that turned out. Its exactly the same problems for each side.

    I could swear that Apple, despite supporting Blu-ray, was planning to put HD-DVD drives in upcoming systems. IIRC, Final Cut Pro supports the format (or, thanks to stupid naming, it was a general reference to HD material on optical formats).

    But it should be fun either way. I'm still sitting out until the industry decides (and I really hope, for sanity's sake, that we don't have another DVD+R/DVD-R with dual-everything mucking things up), but I'm inclined to think that HD-DVD will be the winner, and certainly hope so.

    Yeah but the internet wasnt like it is now. They needed VHS to get porn out there as it was cheap and there was only mags and pictures available before that. Now we have the internet which is mainstream now for porn in downloads and freely available worldwide at a click of a button and free if you know where to look :).

    Porn will not have any effect on the format war right now as you can just as easily and cheaper buy a DVD or just download it. People still download and hunt for old grainy videos.

    Option of paying more for a higher resolution picture for a 2 min handjob aint going to apeal to many and is not going to make it the choice of purchase. Picture quality does not matter in porn as nobody sits down to watch a 2 hour porn film like they do with a real film and want the same quality as a Holywood Movie.

    I have to agree. 5.1 soundtrack on a porn film would be rather disturbing also.

    Amongst all the other screw ups that Sony as spearheaded these past couple years, the idea of porn-free bluray media is just.. stupid. Imagine how much money they'd lose out on by adhering to such stupid morals.

    Given the chance to spend ££ on a decent blu-ray or hd-dvd setup and knowing that one of them wouldn't support porn, then I'd go with the one that does.

    Vote yes to some nice hi-def "in-out, in-out" :thumb:

    yea but how much are the hd-dvds and blue ray dvd's ... tooo much no body is gonna pay that much for a high def version of something they can get for cheaper at dvd prices, simply wasted money tbh.
    i bet this will not affect the outcome (however much i want hd-dvd to win the battle)

    That's an interesting and silly house of cards you have there.

    From the recent crack in the HD-DVD format and the claims that Blu-Ray has an extra layer of security I can see a move to HD-DVD leading to even more porn torrents on the net sooner.

    "The console war will have a direct impact on the PC market, given that Microsoft is integrating Xbox with Windows gaming platforms, and Apple, Microsoft's main rival, is supporting Blu-ray and Sony. Further, the dominant gaming and OS architecture could decide the music wars of iPod v Zune, Microsoft v Apple, which could decide the fate of the music industry."

    Ignoring the sarcastic tone of this statement, I would have to disagree with this assertion. The PC format has shown itself to be robust against hardware and format competition. I think that Microsoft has taken the same tactic with the Xbox 360. The only people that have something to loose are Sony and Apple. The PS3 has made itself a less flexible system with the inclusion of the blu-ray player. (and use of the cell processor) Apple on the other hand is such a closed eco-sytem that once they back a format and start including drives they will be hard pressed to switch.

    Microsoft may not win but they will not lose either.

    Honestly, i'm satisfied with a 320x240 at double size. as long as they are discernable as tits and make my little man stand on his toes wtf do I need 5.1 and HD to watch juggies?

    besides, i don't even like paying for porn. I never get to see the whole movie so why dish out more for less?

    I honestly don't think that porn holds the same power over this format war that it did back in the vhs vs. betamax days. While porno dvds are popular, the vast majority of porn sold now is sold over the internet or thorugh a video streaming service. Honestly, I really don't see too much of a "winner" coming out of this format war simply due to digital distrubution. The only thing that really needs to be perfected is the extra content and permanent storage so we'll see if that happens. If they gave us that much, I wouldn't really miss the discs all that much.

    I never really understood why we need 50Gb for HD content. I can fit HD/AC3 on a DVD using a good codec.

    I agree! why couldn't they just do HD divx dvd's or something.

    I like HD for my 360 gaming, but not ready to move away from my DVD and wont for a while. DVD's have not past there sale buy date yet and still have a long way to go
