Microsoft rubbishes Xbox 360 Blu-ray rumours

March 14th, 2008 · No Comments

Ignore the online scoff about a Blu-ray disc drive for the Xbox 360. It’s just not true. So says Microsoft’s group product manager Aaron Greenberg. He poured cold-water on the rumour-mongering by categorically stating to Reuters: “Xbox is not currently in talks with Sony or the Blu-ray Association to integrate Blu-ray into the Xbox experience.”
The rumours were sparked by Sony’s US president Stan Glasgow, who suggested that the two games titans were in talks. However, Microsoft chief executive Steve Ballmer later stressed that his real interest was in HD downloads via Xbox Live. He did add that Windows would soon offer native driver support for the BD format.
