Porn Industry Chooses HD DVD

Thanks to Mikee4fun for posting this in BPN.

They say the reason VHS beat Betamax was because the adult entertainment industry chose VHS. Recently, at their annual get together, which coincidentally coincides with CES, the adult entertainment industry has chosen HD DVD as the preferred high definition format. Will this decision end the war this time around as well?

First of all, the home video market back in the Betamax vs. VHS war is incomparable to the Blu-ray and HD DVD market. Individuals are turning towards the internet for their video needs and more and more portable video players are becoming available. Still, at least when it comes to the porn industry, it seems that HD DVD is winning without question. But, why? First off, Blu-ray discs cannot be replicated, according to Pink Visual. Secondly, Blu-ray isn't economical; the cost for choosing it as an HD format simply isn't an option, even for bigger studios. It ultimately comes down to three words: Blu-ray is expensive.

"Blu-ray has superior quality, yes, but HD DVD is easier to produce, cheaper to produce and there are more HD DVD players in homes than there are Blu-ray players, for example in the Xbox 360," said a spokesperson for porn studio Bangbros.
