That's HUGE for Sony.
1) You will not see an internal Blu-ray drive in this generation of Xbox. It'll be in the next one, though.
2)Sony and Microsoft don't hate each other like Xbox360 and PS3 fanboys, so this is no surprise. It's all about the $$$. Just look at the announcements today at the Apple town hall meeting. Coming soon on your Iphone, microsoft apps.
It's not like MS had much of a choice....
well xbox didnt have much of a choice in the matter seeing how HD failed.
Agreed. The best you can expect to see with this generation of Xbox is MAYBE a Blu-Ray drive attachment, like the 360 has for HD-DVD. As far as games using Blu-Ray tech, that's going to be solely on the PS3 for now, I think.
Now that's what I want from a gaming company, good games. I don't need to get caught up in a stupid dvd war. Give me great games and I'm happy.
It's a two way street. Last month, Sony announced it's plans for a Windows Mobile Smartphone.
Rodney would be so proud...
Well who didn't see this one coming.......
I don't think you'll see a 360 with internal Blu-Ray either. I doubt MS will even offer Blu-Ray gaming on 360. I wouldn't be suprised if we start hearing about the next Xbox during the 2009 E3.
I don't think it will happen. MS wants you to watch high-def movies on the Xbox, but they want you to get them from MS via download from the market place, that way they get their cut.
Sony is just a part of Blu-Ray now. Even if Sony said FU to MS there is still a really good chance it would happen if MS wants it.
Yeah, because they didn't release an HD-DVD player for the 360 when everyone thought HD-DVD was going to win. :icon_roll
I think this had more to do with them trying to de-rail Sony and Blu-Ray. Microsoft's main goal is digital distribution.
Well...Looks like Xbox is officially Blu-ray bound:
Rumor is EA is also working on BLU-RAY for their new sports gaming console.
Xbox360fanboy is as reliable as the hardware behind it. This rumor has officially been RRoD'd. Next.
