Will Blu Ray come ot 360?
This was a big hit to the Xbox users, but would be nice to stock up on cheap HD movies if you could find them.
It wasn't a hit to me, and I own an Xbox 360. I had no desire for the HD-DVD add-on.
How was it a hit for Xbox owners?!! This was a hit to Toshiba. Now, if MS were to utilze HD-DVD storage, Blu-Ray may had a real problem. Since MS lost "pennies" versus Toshiba's "dollars", there is no lost for MS. Remember, MS is a software company.
@ ReBurn - apparently those disagrees say it was a hit to you, you just didn't know it. Can't say it was a hit to me or the majority of xbox 360 owners because last time i checked they didn't sell 15 million plus HD DVD add ons.
well if it does its all over for ps3
HAHA come on dude.. If Blu Ray came out for 360.. You know how much money Sony/Ps3 would make.. For ever 360 sold a percent would go to Sony/Ps3.. for every blu ray game disc sold on 360 a percent would go to Sony/Ps3.. Thats just more money Sony would make.. Not to mention the Kissing of the feet 360 owners would have to do to Ps3 owners.. MS wont do that.. They are too Dedicated to DD which is still far far far away.. and if they did to blu ray thats admitting defeat and Sony would be laughing all the way to the bank
the ps3 is selling more consoles faster than the 360, like 4-5 months ahead of them, when there are more ps3's out there than 360s, you still gonna argue its all over for the ps3, you guys have been saying that for awhile now, and the ps3 still sells strong... ya sucks hd dvd's went out the window, and everyones wondering if MS will get Blu Ray, first of all, blu ray is sony, and it would be a smart move for MS to go blu ray, but then they would be supporting Sony with blu ray, there competition in the gaming industry...it will be interesting to see what happens, maybe MS will release there own "new player" to rival sony.... You never know...
im in the open zone......ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
try pawnshops i came upon 4 of them for 30 bucks
In a dump, next to a big pile of laserdiscs, 8-tracks, and Betamax. :) Seriously, try e-bay, Craig's List, and pawn shops. One of my friends got all five Harry Potter movies for $30.
Didnt you hear?
they sent them all to 3rd world countries... along with the "19-0 Patriots Super Bowl Championship" hats and t-shirts!!
lol I'm a Pats fan, but you get a bubble anyway!
well played sir, bubble for you, i would give u two if i could lol
That's cold!!! They showed Ely "living it up" & Tom "being salty" on ET a few weeks ago.
Our WAL-MART still has a ton of HD-DVDs....and they're all still priced at $29.99. I guess they didn't get the memo. :o

Actually, you know what.. they don't take this console stuff as serious as fanboys do. They can make a deal and it can work out for both companies. And, also, "and if they did to blu ray thats admitting defeat and Sony would be laughing all the way to the bank" I doubt it.. do you remember how many format wars Sony has lost?? It'd be stupid for MS to add a Blu-Ray player for the 360. Next gen, it will most likely be a necessity though. Actually, It will be mandatory, well, unless they make a new format.
Very True.. but Sony has only put 2 formats into their consoles DVD and blu ray.. While DVD was already a mainstream thing with ps2 came out.. BluRay was still young and is considered "sonys format" so yes they can come up with a deal to benefit both companies.. 360 would get blu ray and Sony would get royalties on every Blu Ray product sold by MS.. But yes I still think if MS goes blu its admitting defeat, remember MS was the one backing HD DVD and lost.. So committing to your rivals format is admitting defeat
Yea, I agree that it would mean them admitting defeat.. but, I don't think they would really care, honestly, I think the only reason they don't want Blu-Ray for the 360, is well, cause it doesn't make sense.
thats where they should have started in the first place.
^ I wonder which console this guy owns ^
What are HD DVD`s...
is a phenomenal solution to getting an extra USB port! For only $50, you get 1 whole USB port, and an extra DVD drive. Imagine being able to play CDs and DVDs in the same machine! Yes, all this for only $49. Only $49! Buy today and they'll even throw in free disposable movies!!
Bill Gate$ has got them all!!! ;-D He's sticking 'HDi' Stickers on them to re-sell them to the Blind xBot Lemmings!!! ;-D
....... yer whatever makes your world go round.
All the idiots who paid $200 for the drive cleared them on off. I remember all the drones coming and telling me about how Microsoft gave them the choice, which they loved. Well, we both chose our choices. The only difference is that one choice is dead, while one is leading the way. Think Blu. Play B3yond.
You are in the wrong zone buddy.
They all went into hiding with Tupac.
probably in the New Mexico desert with Jimmy Hoffa, FOX's dignity and all of those E.T. cartriges
last week HD-DVD add on including 7 movies for $42
I'm surprised that MS just didn't build the 360 with the HD DVD drive and use the bigger disc for the storage for their games since the studios went Bluray.
