Short Bits: Xbox 360 Blu, Cables
Times is reporting that Sony is in talks with Microsoft for Blu-ray on the
Xbox 360. I still
don’t see the point, and Microsoft is still saying “We have made no such
announcement.” Blu-ray on the Xbox 720
makes so much more sense. By the time
you develop for the Xbox 360 you’re only going to have a year or so until the
next console hits. At this point, I wouldn't buy an Xbox 360 with Blu-ray simply because I might be repaying if the Xbox 720 ships with it too. There are additional reports out that the Xbox 360 will be getting a price drop. A price drop and Blu-ray?
Evans has a good post on where to pickup inexpensive cables online, I
strongly agree with his recommendation for Monoprice.com. I’ve ordered from them around a dozen times
and will never buy cables retail again.
