Microsoft: No Plans For Blu-Ray on Xbox 360

Once again, Microsoft clarified that it has no plans to release a Blu-ray drive for the Xbox 360 game console.

During an interview yesterday, Steve Ballmer was asked about Blu-Ray and the Xbox 360.

"Well I don't know if we need to put Blu-ray in there?you'll be able to get Blu-ray drives as accessories," Ballmer replied.

However, Balmer was referring to Blu-Ray accessories for the PC, according to Major Nelson, the Director of Programming for the Microsoft gaming network Xbox Live.

"As we have said in the past, we have no plans to introduce a Blu-Ray drive for the Xbox 360. 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. With a library of thousands of TV shows and movies to choose from, Xbox 360 owners can instantly watch the movies they want, when they want, in the highest form of high definition," Nelson added.
