Blu-Ray headed to Xbox 360?

Blu-ray, Gaming, Tech Digest news

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
