I was browsing the smut universe this morning and found this nonsense story on AVN about Digital Playground’s Blu-Ray discs selling like “gangbusters.” Bullshit.
Do you know anyone with a Blu-Ray player (that isn’t also a game console)? Do you know anyone with an HD-DVD player? How bout an 8-track deck? Laserdisc player? Victrola?
Anyone – especially porn studios – who think this is the “next big thing” is gonna be in for a hard landing. In 1999, DVD was in a similar infancy as these new formats. How many people did you know who owned a DVD player? A shit ton. Cause VHS sucked and DVD was great. DVD is still plenty good. Hence no one cares about the new formats.
We’ll see how healthy porn is in 10 years when the cable companies control all high-def distribution and they’re paying out 2% to producers.
