Well I have called all companies through their 1-800 numbers. A Microsoft Represenative stated they use HD-DVD discs. Although, I may be wrong. But however, Wii is compatible with DVD-Roms, but cannot play DVD movies, because of the way it was programmed. So even if the XBOX did [or does] they programmed it differently. I'm assuming they sold a seperate drive to accommodate everyone with a DVD player upgrade without making a built-in HD-DVD console upgrade (Market Strategy).
Whatever the case is, they should make a Blu-Ray USB Drive. That way they can take advantage of Blu-Ray Media such as BD Games & BD Movies.
BD = [B]lu-Ray [D]isc

Dprinny, I don't see anything like that on Wikipedia, plus I think that would be a legal issue.
Raisinghelen, Wii can easily be turned into a DVD play with a bit of reprogramming (Ask those that have pirated their systems to make it play DVDs. Some of them didn't even need anything extra like a MOD Chip). Original XBOX could play DVDs, but with the way Microsoft programmed the system, it required a Playback kit which was a Controller Socket IR and Remote.
Sony doesn't own Blu-Ray. They're part of the group of companies that helped develop it, but it's not technically a Sony product. There's no legal reason that would prevent Microsoft from releasing a Blu-Ray add-on. And I wouldn't be surprised to see the next XBox use a BD drive. And the next Nintendo console too for that matter.
Get on topic you boobs.
