Shortly after the PSP hit the market, adult video companies were already releasing pornographic UMDs and sexy video content tailor-made for the handheld. Now, another producer of salacious entertainment has chosen the format supported by Sony's next-gen console, the PlayStation 3. Digital Playground, makers of the 2006 Adult Video News Award Best Picture winner Pirates, told trade magazine AVN that it would support the next-generation Blu-ray disc format.

Digital Playground cofounder and director Joone said the fact the PS3 will support Blu-ray was the deciding factor in his company's choice, as it will give the format a huge installed base. "What I don't understand is why Microsoft didn't put HD-DVD players in the Xbox," Joone told AVN. "If they really wanted to get a jump on the market, that would have been a good move. As popular as the Xbox is, they could have had tons of consumers already using the format."
