    I could believe that if they never produced a HD-DVD drive for the 360.

    I would expect that Microsoft are already working on a BluRay equivalent.

    Not too long to wait for that now.

    Games could still be hd-dvd or ms should start making games on 1"" hard drives or solid state when a lot cheaper. Ooh like a cartdridge.

    360 Games use compression on their disks too.

    Re: MS to support Blu Ray on XBOX360?

    Wasn't there something on this in Hexus News?

    If I get the time I'll try and find it and put a link in.

    Here: HEXUS: Microsoft Opts for digital distribution

    As someone already said on this thread, I think MS want you to download stuff. I think they were on about allowing people to install the games on the HDD.

    And Doen't Blue Ray use something lie HDCP? I'm not sure what this would mean hardware wise for the 360.

    Yes you will be allowed to "Install" the games to the Hdd. But you will still need the disc in the machine to play the game. So its a bit different to digital distribution.

    I've had emails at work from the UK ED&D (entertainment division and devices) at MS saying they aren't, slightly more inclined to believe them than a rumour on the internet, not to mention royalty on Blu Ray goes to a company Sony are part of

    Re: MS to support Blu Ray on XBOX360?

    I think microsoft are unlikely to endure the loss of face associated with making a blu-ray 360. They'd much rather push their download service, netflix and that bt iptv thing than prop up a sony format. I think microsoft would prefer blu-ray to never succeed to the level that dvds have, instead they'd like to see content delivered over the internet, all wrapped up in nice ms drm. This is where the money is for microsoft's buisness.

    If Microsoft do not bring out a Blue Ray disc is that so bad game wise?

    The only disadvantage was for games that stream the world from the disc like GTA.
    But if you install it on to the HDD, isn't reading of the HDD quicker than reading from a disc?

    Re: MS to support Blu Ray on XBOX360?

    Will only happen on 360 for VIDEO if even then(still not likely in this gen) no way will they make one for games as how will existing buyers use the new games unless Ms also put out the 50 gig BR DL onto 6.281 disc's for existing customer base.

    An addon is hardly likely to play games just like the hd-dvd addon does not.

    MS next console will have BR drive to play games if that is still best option at that time to play games, but It cannot happen for 360.

    Re: MS to support Blu Ray on XBOX360?

    There would have to be some chance of MS making a decent profit from it, surely. Stand alone players are cheaper now. I wouldnt be too keen on buying a £100ish BR add on when the Samsung player can be had for £160.

    By the time it was made, distributed and marketted, it may not be worthwhile for MS to do it.
