Now HD-DVD is losing the porn war

Though it might seem insignificant compared to the recent decision from Warner, the latest studio to pull out of HD-DVD production could deliver an equally large blow to HD-DVD’s survival chances.


TGdaily

reports that leading hi-def pornography film studio Digital Playground has withdrawn its support of HD-DVD and instead backed Sony’s Blu-Ray format.

Sony has previously blocked the release of adult material on its format, giving HD-DVD exclusive access to such content. But Sony’s change of heart has paved the way for adult film studios to switch their allegiance – a move that could prove fatal to HD-DVD owing to the size of the porn industry.
