Xbox 360 Blu-ray: Microsoft's Aaron Greenberg insists no again

Since the death of the HD DVD format and the fact that Blu-ray was the victorious winner, there have been a huge amount of rumors that the Xbox 360 is to get a Blu-ray player. The answer back then from Microsoft was that there was no truth in those rumors.

The rumors have surfaced yet again, and still the answer from Microsoft remains the same. Microsoft's Aaron Greenberg decided to hit back at all the rumors and still insists no, Blu-ray will not be coming to the Xbox 360.

Greenberg did have a dig at Sony, saying that they do not expect people to pay for something that they do not need. Microsoft are still standing firm and say that their future is with providing online digital distribution.

Digital Distribution huh? At least promote HDD so people will know more about that. Or get rid of the Arcade and sell the 20gb for 199. I think that would be great.

It's not that they are going to make an add-on for the 360 but rather put BD in their next Xbox. Digital Distribution will not be that prevelent and the consoles will still need at least one more generation before going completely digital so it's a no-brainer that they would use BD or some proprietary disc and my guess is that with production costs declining on the BD side of things, they will go that route.

They have no problem in making you pay MORE for stuff you do need though. A lot more.

"MGS4 will come to 360."
"A FFVII remake is on the way."
"Microsoft is adopting Blu-ray."

Looks like Blu-Ray is about to get another spike in sales with the anticipated release of Harry Pothead and the Ass of Fire exclusively on Blu-Ray disc, in stores Oct. 27.
