Porn Epic ‘Pirates' on Blu-ray

20 Dec, 2007 By: John Latchem



Running counter to the perception the adult entertainment industry favors HD DVD, Digital Playground will release its epic adult film Pirates on Blu-ray Disc, according to CEPro.com.

HD DVD had been the favored medium for adult films in high-def, largely due to manufacturing costs and reports that Blu-ray backer Sony did not want the format associated with porn. The support of the adult industry is cited as one factor for VHS winning out over Sony's Betamax in the early 1980s.

Digital Playground already has released four HD DVD titles, but decided to release on Blu-ray due to fan interest, particularly PlayStation 3 owners.

The higher capacity of Blu-ray allows all the extra features to be presented in high-def. The HD DVD version features bonus material in standard-def.

Pirates, already one of the most expensive adult films ever made, also is one of the top adult video sellers for DVD and HD DVD.
