Well then, it may be time for Microsoft to revive HD-DVD... Not for movie but for game distribution. I've already got my blu-ray player...

Well, if it takes longer it just takes longer. Blu-ray support is a necessity.

Exactly. I can't believe we're still using that crappy disc technology after all these years.
Microsoft should invent little ultra high capacity memory cards you buy with the games on them or go totally digital!

So not true. I think MS would be making a mistake not putting in a Blu-ray drive. How can they claim it's the center of the living room (or whatever term they coined) by not allowing people to go out to (insert retail store) and buy the latest movie in HD and not play it on their Xbox and big HDTV?
No it's not... By now, everybody wanting a Blu-Ray player got one, stand alone or PS3...

HD-DVD would put microsoft as eventually being a problem once again if they went that path. As a dual layer HD-DVD holds 40% less than a dual layer Blu-ray. The better route would be to do like the article says and do what nintendo has done and use a proprietary format that has the same capacity but gets around the licensing.]

Yeah, Microsoft wouldn't have waited until now to investigate the licensing situation, that would have been sorted before they even committed to putting it in prototypes.
More BS rumors. im sure Microsoft didn't wait for the last minute to check on some fake 10 year exclusive sony has on bluray.
