Microsoft Adds Blu-ray Support to Windows

From Blu-ray.com:

Microsoft is planning to release "Windows Feature Pack for Storage" which will add support for master style optical burning on Blu-ray discs. The pack has been in non-disclosure laced beta testing for
some time, but can now be seen on the Microsoft Connect website. When released, the pack will upgrade Windows XP and Vista, as well as Server 2003 and 2008.

Currently there is no planned release date for the Feature Pack.

Joke's on you!
It may mean a paltry amount for Sony, but it means big dollars for MS.

AlterEgo3720d ago

Doesn't Mac already support Blu-ray?

I'm pretty sure they do.

And maybe Microsoft should work on fixing their OS before thinking about big dollars from someone else's storage format.

Yes Apple is on the Blu-Ray directors board. LOL M$ is late to the party again. Apple is already talking about puttin a Blu-Ry drive in there computers soon.

Uh, you don't think that Sony/Blu-ray group wants this more than anyone? Why would they not want to be on the most used OS in the world?

I think you should change your "hahaha" to "thankyouthankyou".

It's not something new for the 2 companies to work together. I mean Windows is on Sony laptop's and Windows Mobile is being used on Sony phones including their upcoming new smartphone.

LoVeRSaMa3720d ago

So they should tbh.

I don't really know why this is big news, Microsoft would be stupid not to otherwise ^_^

Either this news is very old, or companys have taken there time.

first step for Microsoft next the 360 will have thus more money for Sony.

1 more thing haha.

jack who3720d ago

"Who needs HD-DVD or Blu-ray? Not Microsoft. The news is that Lite-On is apparently aiming to ship five million DVD drives for the Xbox 360 in the third quarter of this very year.

Digitimes reports that "Microsoft has asked Lite-On to get ready to meet possible increased orders for Xbox 360 DVD-ROM drives..."

So, does this put one more nail in the coffin containing 'news' of a Blu-ray add-on for the 360?"

xboxlover3719d ago

"Microsoft has asked Lite-On to get ready to meet possible increased orders for Xbox 360 DVD-ROM drives..."

I am a hardcore 360 fan, and this only brings 2 things to mind. Massive DVD drive failures, and they will let us replace them.

Just saying
