In the "war" between competing DVD formats, the porn industry had apparently settled on Blu-Ray over HD DVD and was preparing to roll out some new Blu-Ray-based products. That is, until recently. According to an article at Memphis Rap, the porn industry may be changing its mind and switching to HD DVD instead. Why? Well, for several reasons. The biggest reason, according to the article, is that Sony is apparently going to be banning manufacturers from accepting adult content. So, that means adult producers will not be able to release their content on Blu-Ray even if they wanted to.

Also, according to Jackie Ramos, a rep for Wicked Pictures, one of the biggest adult producers: "It's a lot less expensive to use HD DVD." She didn't elaborate as to the exact economics of it but Wicked this week put its money where its mouth is by releasing the first HD DVD adult video, Camp Cuddly Pines Power Tool Massacre, at the AVN trade show is Las Vegas. Like I said, I don't know much about porn but now that the industry is apparently leaning towards HD DVD, I'm even more happy that I've chosen to embrace the format using the player attached to my XBox 360. Like the VHS vs Beta "war" before it, this new format war may also be settled by porn producers with HD DVD coming out on top and becoming the standard.
