What we do know with Sony's PS3 is that they were thinking of planning a shift in hardware and i dont think its just the hard drive. I was under the impression they plan on changing one of the systems so its price will go down, not up. However as we dont know the details, its pure speculation.
The thing concerning Microsoft and blue ray is shakey to say the least. It was announced by Moore that they would consider making an EXTERNAL blue ray drive for the xbox if the customers wanted it. Just because they consider it means in no way it will happen.
But heres the next interesting part, if they do make an external drive for it, its main focus would be on movie playback. You wont see many if not any games made for a system that requires its customers to purchase an external blueray disk drive. There for the only reason to purchase it would be for movies.
