Microsoft didn’t quite have their finger on the pulse when they added HD-DVD format support to the Xbox 360. But Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer has let slip that a Blu-Ray drive could soon be heading to the console’s growing list of accessories.
Speaking to Gizmodo, Ballmer mentioned that “you’ll be able to get Blu-ray drives as accessories” for the Xbox 360 in the future.
Microsoft’s PR have since played down the comment, but if Ballmer has said it, Blu-Ray support for the 360 may not just be a pipe-dream after all.
UPDATE: Nope, Microsoft have changed their tune again it would seem http://www.techdigest.tv/2009/10/update_-_micros.html
