Blu-ray Add-On For Xbox Coming..??

Postby Ian on Thu Oct 22, 2009 3:53 pm

It looks like Blu-ray playback will finally be available on the Xbox 360. In an interview with Engadget, Steve Ballmer let slip that Xbox owners will be able to "get Blu-ray drives as accessories."

When I asked Ballmer about adding Blu-ray to the Xbox, he said:

Well I don't know if we need to put Blu-ray in there—you'll be able to get Blu-ray drives as accessories.

False alarm...

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 this fall 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.
