HD DVD Porn Arrives

Looks like HD DVD is first to market with high def porn: :D

Some are claiming that the format war is over and that HD DVD is the winner by virtue of the simple fact that the first porn film to be releasesd in a next-gen format has gone for HD DVD.

Over in Japan GLAY'z, known for its "Brand-new-century-visual-super-exprotion-entertainment," just released the world's first adult film on HD-DVD entitled (if machine translation isn't too unreliable) "Slave Room." Public fornication aside, it's pretty significant since everybody and their mom knows that whatever format the adult industry supports is automatically the winner, or at least that's how the story goes.

The movie includes both an HD-DVD and standard DVD version due to HD-DVD's small penetration rate thus far. It retails for about $52. Screenshots can be found on GLAY'z Web site. Needless to say, it's NSFW.

Once blu-ray marketing men get on board, blu-ray are bound to have a deeper penetration rate :rotfl:

I love how people say "History shows that the format which porn choses wins the format war". What a load of toss.

That was based on 1 war, in an era where porno was only available on tape. What with the internet and cable TV, I think porn will have very little effect on the format war. We'll see porn released on both formats, although HD-DVD will probably have the advantage due to cost.

I agree - although I think porn is more likely to thrive in the download market as opposed to evolving to either HD DVD or BluRay.

Not sure what effect the porn market will have but it will certainly see the directors of these companies pulling together to see who can stay alive in this market.

The HD DVD v Blu Ray is an interesting format war but I think the consumer will ultimately decide and end up knocking one out.

Anyone else want to carry on? :rotfl:

That is the 'Pirates' boxset - which included a WMV HD-DVD (as distinct from a HD DVD).

Piece of trivia: 'Pirates' is the most expensive porn film ever made.

Some good points raised there Abbeygoo. Personally I had not completely gripped the HDDVD/BluRay situation until I read your post - so give yourself a hand.

Anyway, got to shoot off now. :hiya:
