[RUMOR] Blu-Ray 360 Drive by May - Feb 25, 2008 00:00

It' s inevitable that a 360 Blu-Ray peripheral drive is in the pipeline, but these folks believe they know when. Some of the more outstanding quotes from the article.

Insiders at Microsoft in the USA have told SmartHouse that Microsoft has already configured a standalone Blu-ray player that can be connected into an Xbox 360 and that subject to internal marketing and sales approvals the model could be on sale within 3 months.

The Company has also been working on a built in Blu-ray player however insiders are claiming that Microsoft see the HD format battle moving online with consumers offered 1080p movie and content files as a download as opposed to having to buy a HD DVD or Blu-ray disc.

Michael Ephraim the Managing Director of Sony Computer Entertainment said: " We would welcome Microsoft to the Blu-ray stable. In fact it is quite logical for them as the PS3 has been very succesful in driving consumers to Blu-ray. In fact we believe that it has done more to win the format war than traditional Blu-ray player" .

When asked whether Sony would grant Microsoft a Blu-ray licence he said: " That is up to Sony Corporate but I see no reason why they would not do it" .

Smugness radiates from that quote, even in print.
