    Sony on Tuesday denied claims that it was preventing the porn industry from using the Blu-ray high-definition format developed by the consumer electronics giant.

    Media reports have quoted adult-film directors and producers accusing Sony of pressuring others not to manufacture Blu-ray discs with adult content or share technology with the porn industry. The result, according to reports, has been a migration by adult filmmakers toward HD DVD, a competing format.

    Sony dismissed the claims saying it has no control over the licensing of Blu-ray, and has no problem with the adult industry using the format. "There's no prohibition against adult content," Lisa Gephardt, a spokeswoman for Sony Corp. of America, said. "We don't tell people how they can use the licenses they get from the Blu-ray Disc Association."

    They killed Betamax that way. No porn = no fun = no money = SONY GOT FUCKED!!!

    Like, u have 60" TV and you have your PS3 which is fully capable of 1080p resolution and then you insert your new "Backdoor Sluts 9" Blu-Ray format disk into your PS3 and watch that pr0n. Ouch...but denying that to people, is like nudering yourself. Btw, HD-DVD allows porn on their media, so X360, HD-DVD player and "Backdoor Sluts 9" HD-DVD version is as good as Blu-Ray version. :)
