HomeMediaMagazine reports, HD DVD has another defection on its hands, though it's not making headlines on national cable news.
Adult video producer Digital Playground had been releasing a majority of its high-def titles on HD DVD. However, it confirmed Feb. 15 that all future high-def titles would be on Blu-ray Disc.
Compared to Warner, Netflix, Best Buy and Wal-Mart, it may be a minor victory for Blu-ray, but it's an important one, stresses Ali Joone, feature director and founder of the company.
Island Fever 4 and Babysitters, two adult titles already on HD DVD, will be the company's next Blu-ray releases, followed by eight new Blu-ray titles every month, Joone said. The company has more than 200 films shot in high-def, all of which could eventually see a Blu-ray release, he added.
