The adult movie industry seems set to standardise on the HD-DVD format, and it appears that Sony has banned pornographers from using its Blu-ray discs.

Over the last 30 years the industry has been responsible for VHS beating competing format Betamax in the earlys, the development of secure online payments, and even the explosion of the DVD format. Perhaps spelling the outcome of the latest disc format war between Sony's Blu-ray and Toshiba's HD DVD, adult film producer Digital Playground, whose famous adult film titles include the Island Fever series and Pirates - a high budget porn take on Pirates of the Caribbean - has been told by Sony that it will not be allowed to release XXX movies on the company's Blu-ray disc format.
