Stoya_Digital_Playground.gifThe adult video industry has long been credited with resolving the VHS versus Beta war of past, and that same industry may just be settling a video format war again. I'm not talking about the Blu-ray vs. HD DVD battle of last year, which Warner decided for us all on "Blu-Friday" just before CES and the AVN Expo of 2008. This time, the adult video industry is really ahead of the curve with what they are working on for high definition content.

Those with Van Nuys and Chatsworth, California zip codes have been producing HD porn for over two years now with a fetish for HD DVD in the early goings because of lower cost of manufacturing and lack of mandatory licensing fees. At the AVN Expo last January, Blu-ray discs were just starting to show up in adult video booths, while HD DVD's were present en masse. Many studios had to quickly retool their production plans to keep pace with the winner of the silver disc format war especially after the "Blu-Friday" massacre at the 2008 CES show which runs concurrently with the AVN Expo in Las Vegas every January.
