Blu-ray: Betamaxxx 2?

Digital Playground, an adult movie producer (for those of you pretending not to know), claims that they can only release their features on HD DVD discs since Sony will not allow XXX content on Blu-ray.

I've tried my best to avoid making cheap Betamax/Blue-ray comparisons, because I thought it pigeonholed a new technology that had promise but little real world exposure.

This comparison, however, is an unavoidable direct parallel. At this point the story is still rumor...and I really can't imagine Sony making the same mistake twice.
