    This rumour won't go away until it actually happens.

    Re: Headlines - Rumour-mill :: Blu-ray equipped Xbox 360 will ship September

    Personally I'd like to see it happen, and would certainly sell / trade in my current 360 for a blu ray equipped 360. I wonder if perhaps a hybrid drive could be developed with two lazers? One to read blu ray and the other to read dvd. Which I think is much the same way the combo drives offering hd dvd and blu ray in the same unit work?

    Well hybrid drives do exist

    LG GGC-H20L Lightscribe SATA 16xDVD±R + RWx8/-RW x6 Also READS - Blu-Ray & HD Disc's black - Retail

    Don't know if you could make then cheaper by dumping the write features though

    IF the 360 with Blu-ray becomes a reality, then MS really need to think of a major update for the console. Improved cooling, mods to motherboard, would be pointless adding the drive without thinking about these.

    Agreed perhaps they could look at Sony's idea, a big massive fan rotating fairly slowly directly above the motherboard? I'd think it would be a plan to keep things simple and mayby just go with a premium and elite sku and do away with core and arcade. I'd also want HDMI connectivity as well featured.

    I'd also add an optical out as well. Very short sighted of MS to have this on a dongle for HDMI eqipped consoles. or on the video cable. Another stupid idea by MS.

    Surely that is what it will cost

    edit: actually a pony is only £25
