Xboxer360.com has discovered that the rumoured Blu-Ray add-on is once again false.
Like we didnt know already
Well, duh. The only true and relevant advantage the 360 has left is the cost. The Blu-Ray drive would make it WAY too expensive. 12
it's too late !!!! 20million people already have Xbox 360. Developers won't make all Xbox 360 games on Blu-ray because they will lose money LIVE WITH IT !
no body care
Blue Ray is not goint to XBOX as it is not going to be supported by Windows...BR will be supported only by 3th party software which nobody buy nowdays. without Windows support BluRay will not have as much success as DVD has.
If I wanted a bluray player to watch movies I would go and buy one. It's ashame PS3 fans were forced into excepting bluray as some type of standard this gen when it wasn't even needed. I want a game console 1st not movie player 1st. LOL at all you guys trying to justify how much you spent.
Does this mean that the 360 is gettin' a blu-ray drive? I've only been told 45 times that it isn't...Apparently I need to be told again.
DaDarkKnight (15)has a link for you down below.
can you say epic......
Seriously? That's your post? You rocked yourself in your first sentence. "If I wanted a bluray player to watch movies I would go and buy one. It's ashame PS3 fans were forced into excepting bluray as some type of standard this gen when it wasn't even needed." You're right, it wasn't needed, but neither were the L2/LB and R2/RB when it came to light, now it is. When you are advancing something, there's a bit of a learning curve that comes with it. Now, on to your statement. When I bought my PS3, I knew what I wanted. I wanted a BluRay player, I wanted to browse online, I wanted music, pictures, slideshow, wifi, free online, gaming console, wireless bluetooth controllers without having to replace my batteries, playstation exclusive games and a memory card reader. Was I forced to buy? no, because I don't NEEEED any of that. When I bought my 360, I wanted a pure gaming machine with access to the xbox exclusives, and trophies, and multi-user profiles playing the same game with in game music access. Now I feel sorry for people like you, because if I only had a 360 (like obviously you do), I would be -forced- to buy a bluray player if I wanted one. But those who have a PS3 don't have to spend any extra money to get it. Doesn't that make you just feel soggy? Your comment one more time ""If I wanted a bluray player to watch movies I would go and buy one." Spend extra money on top of your 360 to get it? But you are fanboyishly attacking PS3 owners that don't have to "go and buy one" One last time ""If I wanted a bluray player to watch movies I would go and buy one."
Sad to say but BLU RAY is on its way out. When you have big people in the industry saying they don't see it being around for more than five years Samsung - http://gizmodo.com/5044894/... THX - http://www.crunchgear.com/2... Aaron Greenberg http://www.videogaming247.c... - Is actual words are pretty harsh, Decline in sales http://www.gamepro.com/arti... Its like how many people do you have to hear it from to realize, it's on it's way out. Why would MS want to put it in there system. At 30 dollars a movie I would rather bump my nextflix rental up or use the money to buy a game.
MGS4 is NOT coming to 360, and LBP is not either. Nothing except RROD and failure is coming to crapbox 180 anyway.
wow.. your not a fanboy are you? Try being open minded - yes were not getting APB or MGS4 but your not getting Fable II or Gears of War 2 or the other long list of 360 Exclusives!
just in time to get a Little pice of the Dark Night Blu-ray in hi-def Mega Movie holiday sales Money. and just in time to be called world around big fat lying Hypocrites
I don't want Fable II anyway. Or another Halo rehash either. Gears is pretty cool, but this story makes me sad because as much as I think the 360 sucks (and it does suck), this means fewer people can enjoy the phenomenon that is Blu-Ray. What good is a HDMI port without Blu-Ray? Downloadbale films? Don't make me laugh.
lol yeah this rumour seems to resurface every 3 months
360 doesnt need blu ray... blu ray is poo
Standard def TV owner?
talk with ur brain not ur a$$.... :D
Not me I play on a 32 inch HDTV and on a 40 inch HDTV But blu ray is over priced in the fact standard DVD's look good and are VERY cheap... when it comes down to it blu ray isnt worth the extra money
Anyone that hasnt watched BR on a HD tv should just shut up. Seriously- this isnt about consoles per se as it is about reality- sorry but technology affords more quality to those that utilize it and pay for it, and in the case of Speed Racer, it looks better on BR- I also picked up 300 and Pans Labyrinth (17.50 each!) and everyone that watches it on my humble 32" 720p is impressed. No- BR is not needed for the 360, but cmon ms lovers think about it....(what if halo 4 was on a 50gb disk-- sounds nice doesn't it? Cmon......) -dvd's are now cheap thanks to BR- its media so the price always reflects perceived value.
Of course not.The 360 is incapable of going next-gen
You get bubbles, because I'm a douche. I'm a douche x5.
I'm so tired of this story.
Haven't MS already said no?
Even if the 360 got a Blu-ray add-on, I doubt many people with 360's would buy it.... Plus, the 360 isn't the most reliable or quiet console for watching movies on. These Blu-ray rumors on the 360 are getting a little ridiculous though.
how many xbox 360 web sites are there? xboxer360.com - add it to the list.
i see people that want it then they dont. im confused.
I guess it's mix. Some are bitter, some are confuse, and some are just wishing for Blu-ray. I don't see why Microsoft insist on not having a blu-ray drive if they make it optional.
I would love for a Blu-Ray Add On. Then I can sell my PS3 that I only play Blu-Ray Movies On.
if you cant find a game to play on the PS3 your a complete fool stfu
Uncharted Resistance Heavenly Sword MGS4 not for me. Folklore Plan on playing Res 2. Sorry I just Prefer my xbox 360. I hope that did not ruin your day.
I don't like you.
I'm a douche.
I'm a douche x2.
I'm a douche x3.
I'm a douche x4. Edit: I won't have time to make an appearance, for the sake of my self-directed documentary on why, I, Billy Crystal, am the biggest douche in the world. It'll star me, the douche, and my douche poodle dog. It'll be my biggest career comeback since Rat Race. Thanks again, take care.
Tu eres un douche
lol You sure are Crystal When is your next appearance on the Hollywood Squares?
You were awesome in Monsters Inc.
its like MGS4 rumors i bet we here about that again early 2009 Like twelve said above me 360 has one thing going for it and thats a $200 price tag! What i would really find interesting is sales of Arcade compared to Elite! My guess is 8 to 1 Arcade and if my guess is right then MS has done nothing for the real gamer and have indeed put a foot into casaul without having the games for that market!
rly? thats weird...the 360 not ripping off something
Or you could just sell your 360 because all the best games on the system are on the ps3 anyways. Plus you'll save money because its just gonna red ring anyways.
Best games on the system are not on the PS3. How did the Bioshock and Orange Box Ports Turn Out? I am not saying the PS3 has no games. I have just played the ones I care to. I prefer the 360 for the achievements, the controller, xboxlive, my friends that have xbox 360's, Halo universe, etc. I have a place in my home for the PS3 and the Wii, but the majority of my gaming in on the 360.
dont be so hard on yourself you always have the Yankees
Meh. MS should really bite the bullet and make a Blu-ray add on. While they may have to pay royalties to Sony, it benefits the customer who may want to watch Blu-rays but don't have the money or are too biased/fanboyish to buy a PS3.
Do ya'll read anything other than this blog windows is going to support blu-ray lol http://www.blu-ray.com/news...
I wasn't talking about those cruddy games you just mentioned. I was talking about future releases that mattered like COD5, RE5,,stuff like that. Also, the ps3 has the best games,, the only one I would ever miss on my ps3 would be Fable 2,, but I bought a 360 just so I can play that game. I dont see myself playing any other games on it considering every other exclusive title on the system is mediocre at best. I laugh at those who mention gears 2,, the very people who quit playing gears in 2006. I Rented NBA2K9 on your precious 360 and the online didnt even work,, so much for the 3 month subscription I bought just to play this game until Fable 2 came out. There wasn't even any new demos this week which just proves to me again that the 360 is nothing but a waste of my money. I can't even use my xbox live the day fable 2 comes out. You really don't understand though cause you fanboys stay in denial. Dont get me wrong. Fable 2 is my most anticipated game this year,, but seriously though, what else does your 360 have that is worth even renting on the 360? Please tell me cause I really want a good reason why I shouldn't sell my 360 after Im done with Fable2. Dont even say Left 4 Dead, I seen gameplay of that game,, it looks just like counter strike, but with even worse gameplay and worse graphics.
Who cares. I got my PS3 for that.
There really is nothing True HD 1080p about 360. NOTHING.
doesn't need to it will die soon anyways...streaming movies though cable is close....blu-ray is expensive...economy sucks...sony couldnt of picked a better time to release blu-ray.
go look at the back of some brand new ps3 games...supports 720p only HURRAYYY..sony lies
Everyone knows these rumors are created by fanboys who want to justify their blu-ray as being the next big thing....lord knows when such a add on is created, then blu-ray will pick up steam...but until they hit 200 dollars it wont.
Just buy a PS3 if u want Blu-ray, it's better than Xbox 360 all together anyway.
thank god. we dont want slow loads and mandatory 5 gig, 25 minutes installs. games > movies poor droids :(
