Xbox 360 to get Blu-ray Disc drive?

By Derek Sooman on
Amid rumours that the Xbox 360 games console might be getting gifted with an HD DVD drive (or not, as the case may be), it has now also emerged that the next generation console may ship with a Blu-ray Disc drive as an alternative, should consumers prefer that next-generation optical disc format over HD DVD. Yes, Microsoft is in typical fashion keeping its options open, ready to embrace whatever format wins the next generation DVD format war.

Seemingly, there is now doubt over whether we will get HD DVD with Xbox 360 at all.

Let's just see what happens is what I say.
