    HD DVD = Porn, Blu-Ray = No porn - The choice is yours!

    Sony don't want to see porn on their Blu-Ray format?!? HD DVD could be laughing all the way to the bank.

    Check out the Headline

    Hang on, didn't we see the same thing with VHS/BetaMax? I seem to recall that Sony wouldn't allow pr0n on the superior BetaMax format - this in the end nailed the coffin on that format.... Could we see the same thing here?
    What we share with everyone is glum, and dark...

    Can you spell corporate suicide?

    I mean, as undesirable as porn may seem, it makes a lot of money for all involved...

    Blimey thats thats a terribly high horse.

    I have never bought a product that restricts me from what I see. Parental Controls are obviously fine, but Ipods are out and so are Blu-Ray now. It doesn't matter what you may personally think of an activity if its legal then there should be no restriction on seeing it.

    And yes one of the reasons BetaMax failed was the access to adult material, there were others but surely you wouldn't want to do the same again!?

    I can't read 'Games' headlines at work, can someone post the actual news link?

    Google brings up articles that claim both ways (Adult content goes blu-ray) for example

    your link is to an old article.

    the blu-ray backing porn studios were denied access to pressing facilities, as those facilities were warned that porn would mean losing their licenses. see http://www.sgknox.com/2007/01/11/no-porn-on-blu-ray/ for a translation of the original german article at http://www.heise.de/newsticker/meldung/83524

    do you seriously want to see Hi-Def close-ups

    it's detailed enough on DVD - Hi-Def would be enough to put anyone off for life!!

    Yes

    Although im hoping this will be one of the nails for BR now.
    HD DVD is cheaper (both players and disks), non sony and has been cracked already (if you think im buying a new HDMI/HDCP display to watch movies on, you're wrong).

    seriously tho, id have thought Sony would have dropped morality (its not like they normally have any anyways) just to see their format come out on top....if youll excuse the pun

    Not 100% true, AACS has been cracked, but you still need the disk key to play it, and you'll need to be able to pull that out of the memory on a per movie basis. Once the studios realise what program is being used to do that, they'll stop the disk from being able to be played on that version of that software by changing the keys in such a way that you HAVE to update it.

    I believe PowerDVD is the application in question at the moment.

    But isn't keeping the key in memory an allowed/accepted part of the AACS standard?

    no

    but the current software players do it anyway

    here's the best bit - now that a key is known, you can trivially test for a crackable player by searching memory for a known key whilst playing that disc
