Microsoft Quashes 360 Blu-ray Talk
The Microsoft CEO suggested earlier this week that an add-on could be forthcoming, but apparently he was referring specifically to PCs.
Xbox Live guru Major Nelson was among those that cleared up any confusion: "During an interview yesterday, Steve Ballmer was asked about Blu-ray and the Xbox 360," he wrote on his blog. "I wanted to clear something up. Steve was referring to Blu-ray accessories for the PC. As we have said in the past, we have no plans to introduce a Blu-ray drive for the Xbox 360."
"In fact, the future of home entertainment starts very soon when Xbox 360 becomes the first and only console to offer instant-on 1080p streaming HD movies. With a library of thousands of TV shows and movies to choose from, Xbox 360 owners can instantly watch the movies they want, when they want, in the highest form of high definition."
That's that cleared up then – no 50GB games on the horizon for the 360 for the forseeable future. But does that matter? Let us know.
