The Hi Def DVD Format War is Over

If there's one big story coming out of the CES show in Vegas right now, it's an indication as to which competing high-definition DVD format will prevail. HD-DVD or BluRay?

Porn appears to have chosen sides. These two articles back up my premise:

CES 2007: HD DVD versus Blu-ray - The porn industry says HD DVD

1080p Porn? Blu-ray Says 'No Thanks'

Both of these stores indicate that HD-DVD is the format that the porn industry will ultimately support. And anyone who follows consumer electronics trends where formats are competing for market share, it's always the format used by the porn industry that emerges as the victor. I find it odd that BluRay intentionally chose not to be involved with the porn industry.
