Turns out Steve Ballmer doesn’t know what he is talking about. That Blu-Ray Device? PC only.Major Nelson sets things straight on his blog:
“As we have said in the past, we have no plans to introduce a Blu-Ray drive for the Xbox 360,” Hryb reiterated. “In fact, the future of home entertainment starts very soon when Xbox 360 becomes the first and only console to offer instant-on 1080p streaming HD movies.”
What a streaming pile of arse nuggets. I’m still pissed that XBOX never included HD DVD drive from the start. As an owner of both formats, HD-DVD was awesome and more consumer friendly than Sony’s Blu-ray discs of blues.
