Sony bows to Blu-ray porn industry in Japan

31 July 2007

Sony has finally bowed to the porn industry in Japan, at least in an offhand kind of way. Though Sony still will not "press" Blu-ray discs containing adult content, they have sold a machine to a new Taiwanese company, which has already made an agreement to manufacture adult Blu-ray movies. In addition, Sony has promised to give technical support to any Blu-ray manufacture, regardless of the intended content.

This latest news comes from the Adult Treasure Expo 2007 in Japan. Currently there are 10 adult Blu-ray titles available to Japanese. Yoshimasa Nozu, a producer at Total Media Agency, promises that they will begin to output at least 1 new title a month alongside the new announcement. The HD-DVD camp only has one such film at the moment.

The VHS format benefited immensely from the pornography industry, as Sony learned the hard way with their Betamax format by refusing to house such videos on their storage medium. The HD-DVD is currently king of porn in the US thanks to Sony once again refusing to house such material on their format. However, with this latest news, it may not be long until adult video stores are stocked with Blu-ray videos.
