    i would be a nice add on, if they did decide to go that way in the end. but somehow i cant see m/soft wanting to pay royalties to sony, but i'm pretty sure that their going to have to incorperate BD into their next console.

    They will need bigger storage just for the games alone on their next console, and given that Bluray is the only real option now, its almost certain

    I think with the format war over. Microsoft will have to add BD or they will loose sales to Sony on that alone.

    They may need more storage, but MS won't be making games on Blu-ray for this generation. All that would happen would be confusion in the gaming world. Games on DVD & Blu-ray, 360 Arcade/Pro/Elite/ElitePro? How to screw up the market in one easy mode.

    For their next console, not the 360
    Should have made that a bit clearer.

    XBOX360 Blu-Ray Support?

    With respect, I'm not so sure. I'd hazard a guess that there'll be an "add-on" drive, similar to the 360's HD-DVD drive.

    It would almost certainly be external, like the current HD-DVD option. That wouldn't really attract me - I'd rather have a BR drive in my PC, given time. I like the crispness/sharpness (if they're words) of my LCD monitor compared to even LCD-TVs, and (edit) you can set things how you like with computer players, and there are so many to choose from: MPc (with appropriate codecs), CL PD7.3, WMP11, VMC/MCE, VLC-mp, etc.

    If I were in the market for a BR player, and saw this add-on player at a reasonable price (around £100), and I already had a 360 (which I don't, at least not yet,) it would be worth considering, I suppose.

    I do agree with you that their "next-gen" product (XB-720? lol) will have to support a "next-gen" format (probably blu-ray, but could still be UVD in theory), with backwards compatibility, or it will not sell.

    Will it though? The cost of R&D of the drive/software isn't insubstantial and the point of the 360 is gaming not HD playback. BD standalone players will drop below the three figure mark too soon to make it that appealing for MS to do the addon (and sell it for reasonable profit) IMHO.
    Sony will continue to make big noises about how gaming absolutely needs 50gb discs but the reality is rather different.

    it isn't much effort to change a disc but i would have preferred my lost odyssey to be 1 disc instead of the 4 it is.

    i dont ccare what we use but discs with more storage are needed

    I dont care what the games come on but it would be nice if they started caching some of the game data to the hard drive in the 360 instead of having to wait for it to load from the damned CD, the bigger games get the more time your going to be sat waiting for the cd...

    Re: MS to support Blu Ray on XBOX360?

    if the developers are clever you wont have to wait that long, the throughput of the DVD isn't bad at all, the problem is too many are been quick n cheap about it, not laying out the data in a clever way, thinking if someone is here, they might well need this data because odds are they will do this.....

    is a bit of an art, but it can be done.

    Alternatively they could just design a console with bucket loads of RAM.
