    Microsoft to get Blu-ray player~ Evidently this is not surprising

    Well we all have heard about the recent warner to bluray, and than walmart, and than toshiba and than alomost every other good studio/retailer

    Microsoft has announced (or its a rumor, but either way its coming) that a blu-ray for 360 is coming

    lol, this is fun, MS adapting to Blu-ray, ps3 is still the better choice though, imagine how much this blu-ray player would cost

    That is quite predictable, Microsoft were one of the only companies backing HD-DVD, Im really glad that one format is starting to dominate already, otherwise we couldve been stuck having to buy multi-everything.

    yeah i called it in another thread saying they would just switch to blu ray! but no it wont cost that much. the hd-dvd player was $200, im guessing this will be around the same price, $250 at most. all youre buying is an addon to read the discs, the 360 is already capable of running it which is how the blu ray on the ps3 is so "cheap".

    Everything in this signature except for this text was made by Wiired, he is my creator and almighty.

    yea this is good, gives costumors a chance of buying the right format

    but buying a 360 for 300 than a add-on will be more than ps3, but its good for people who already have it

    I'd buy it if it came out for around the same price as the HD DVD player is now. At the moment the cheapest blu-ray player is only £20 cheaper than the PS3

    yea but ps3 is still the best blu-ray on the market

    360's might or will have a good chance of being better but i see the price of it around 200-250-300 any one of em

    But if this happened, would the older games work fine?

    No the 360 will not have the blu-ray drive built into it, it will be a add on because if they did release it inside a 360 imagine how much it would be, imagine yourself paying more for a 360 to play the blu-ray games and what not

    theirs alot of reason why this would be a Add-on,

    Right now if you look at the average prices for roughly the same level equipment in stand-alones and drive only for BD vs. HD-D, the BD gear is about 2-2.5x the price of HD-D.

    If MS does offer an external BD drive within the next 6-12 months, I suspect it will be at least $250.00 (US). Still a 360 + HD-D + BD addons makes a pretty powerful media machine with a reasonably small footprint.
