Toshiba says no to new Xbox 360 HD DVD rumour

As with every 'Microsoft to add HD DVD to 360' rumour – currently at about one a month – Microsoft is dismissing the claims. But so is Toshiba.

A spokesperson for Tosh told Stuff.tv: 'It's got nothing to do with us. But we know Microsoft doesn't want to include the HD DVD drive so as not to limit the user's experience.'

Microsoft pulled a fast one on Sony by launching its Xbox 360 without a built-in HD DVD player and keeping costs down. Since then, the PS3's Blu-ray support has seen the format take a slim lead in the HD disc showdown.

The story is too old to be commented.

"Since then, the PS3’s Blu-ray support has seen the format take a slim lead in the HD disc showdown."

I thought the gap was larger than what the article implies. Although the format wars is not close to finishing, Blu-Ray is certainly leading as far as I'm aware.

From the article: "A spokesperson for Tosh told Stuff.tv: ‘Toshiba has no comment to make on this matter. The Xbox 360 is not a Toshiba product.’"

Nowhere in the article does it say "Microsoft doesn’t want to include the HD DVD drive"

Did stuff.tv change the article or did the person who made this story for N4G change the quote?

PS3 morons are here crying again. MAN Transformers in HD is sooooo awesome. I can't wait to watch it a second time. It must really suck to own a PS3. You can watch Spiderman all you watch....its got nothing on Transformers.

one of the many, many reasons i know i made the best choice

The only problem is the phrase "so as not to limit the user’s experience" does not appear in the article. Whoever wrote this story made that line up...

AnalFace3377d ago

Thank god for that.. The last thing that MS needs is a dead format drive!

happyjimmy3377d ago

At least Microsoft still has a little bit of dignity left. ;p.
