What a difference a year makes. At the AVN 2007, we ran a story titled No Porn on Blu-ray?. Today, Prominent adult movie producer Digital Playground says that they plan to stop releasing porn on HD DVD probably by the end of 2008.

The statement was made by Joone the founder of Digital Playground in an interview with German Heise. Joone names two reasons for the planned drop of HD DVD. The first reason is the decision of Warner to switch to Blu-ray.
The second reason is that the Blu-ray titles released by Digital Playground outsell the HD DVD titles by a big margin.

Joone sees the reason for the Blu-ray success in the Sony PS3 adoption.
Digital Playground is still having issues with Sony about their adult movies on Blu-ray as they talked about last year at the AVN 2007, but the company is now producing Blu-ray discs with independent Blu-ray disc makers.
More details on Heise (German). Update: Digital Playground says that they still support both formats. More details on Dailytech.

If Porn moves away from the HD DVD, then this is the final nail in the coffin of the HD DVD format. Read also Shane's take on the HD DVD withdrawal at CES 2008.
