Red face Porn producers speak : Worried because of high Blu-Ray costs. HD-DVD was simply bette

Well, porn producers are expressing concerns about the current situation because of high cost and replication difficulties of Blu-Ray. Porn producers never got the price subsidies that Hollywood majors got and had to pay 4 times the cost of HD-DVD.

From the article:
Quote:
Blu-ray is "a little bit of a headache" because of royalty fees, but it's "six of one, a half dozen of the other" with the format wars, he said. Blu-Ray also "sounds sexier," according to Thill.
So, after looking at the pros and cons, all problems are equal. All the others are saying price was a problem, but they're looking into going forward with Blu-ray. Another Deadmeat attack exposed.

Of course, as usual, the article wasn't copied or pasted here, just commented on by the OP.

Thank you Zombie for revealing the truth.

Wow so if it currently costs $50 or more for one HDDVD porn, who is gonna spend that much to begin with...Unless porn movies cost $15-$25, the majority of people won't even bother buying them.

So anything more than $30 for an HD porn feature is honestly a lost cause.

Glad to see you got off your PS3/SD/Downloads crusade and moved on to better subjects....we can all talk porn all day and not get tired of it.

It smells like dead meat in here. Is something starting to rot?

Yes, it is harder to produce them for BluRay but it all comes out in the end

yeah its DEFINITELY starting to rot...as the dead meat is running out of anti-bluray subjects to talk about...

We should contact the Mods, and create a dead meat only thread, even give it a Sticky status as a bonus for sparing us the B.S.!!

Did you even read that article yourself?

It's quite annoying that you analyze the article, get the message completely distorted and then create a thread with a title that is misleading.

I suggest people who visit this thread actually read the entire article, and maybe you'll see that it's really about the adult industry looking towards Blu-ray for their future releases, mentioning that the HD-DVD had a cheaper replication cost. The reason for their switch is player availability, the PS3 demographic and the recent switch by Warner. Who would have thought??

And besides. The Internet is for porn.

In the porn industry, price is a bigger standpoint. A porn studio isn't huge like the movie studios so they most likely won't be ordering the pressing of huge orders to the point that price breaks occur. Factor in how BD is more expensive and both formats are capable of doing the same thing it was more sound for HD DVD to be the choice, especially since it's been ready since launch. Anyone in the industry will go towards the format that becomes a standard, but that's not saying they prefer it more over the 'dieing/losing' format.
