sugar & spiceAn informal poll conducted by TGDaily seems to indicate that the porn industry is almost exclusively supporting HD-DVD. One small studio spokesperson cited high production costs as the primary reason PlayStation 3's Blu-ray format would be snubbed; though he does hold the opinion that Blu-ray has "superior quality." Still, if the porn industry sides with (or is even forced to side with) HD-DVD, it would hardly signal a death knell for Blu-ray. Porn isn't gonna decide this format war.

From a console perspective, which disc format the porn industry ultimately chooses won't have nearly as big an impact as could a decision by one of the console makers (Microsoft or Sony) to open up its console to a wider variety of digital video formats, coupled with a highly compatible web browser -- currently PS3 has the edge (and Nintendo ain't far behind), but the machine is far from the ideal. Any and all porn directly downloadable onto a console? That "feature" could (quietly) move units.
