My Twelfth Post on Xbox 360 Not Getting Blu-ray

I never thought I would get a dozen posts out of this topic, but what do you know! Some said I was dead wrong when I predicted that Microsoft wasn’t planning on adding Blu-ray to the Xbox 360. After covering the issue from every different angle...

Bach Says No to Blu-ray in Xbox 720, First Party ZunePhone

We don’t even have to wait until tomorrow to find out that the Xbox 360 isn’t getting Blu-ray . Why? Because Robbie Bach was asked if Microsoft had plans for Blu-ray to appear in the next generation Xbox (Via Engadget ) and answered “No. There is nothing...

No, Xbox 360 Isn’t Getting Blu-ray on Monday

Another day, another horrible rumor . Microsoft will not announce that the Xbox 360 is getting Blu-ray on Monday. This latest rumor does give me a good chance to cover Shane Kim of Microsoft Game Studios saying the Xbox 360 is set to last seven years...

Microsoft: “No Plans to Introduce a Blu-ray Drive for Xbox 360”

I hope you didn’t really think Microsoft was doing an Xbox 360 with Blu-ray , because they are once again denying it . So, what do you think is really going on? These sites are flat out making up the rumors to drive web traffic OEMs think constant reports...

Why I’m I Still Posting About Xbox 360 With Blu-ray?

Xbox 360 Blu-ray Shot Down Again By Microsoft

You didn’t think Lite-On was really manufacturing Blu-ray Disc drives for the Xbox 360, did you? It doesn’t seem that Microsoft put too much stock into it, supposedly being quoted flat out with “No. Lite-On is not manufacturing Blu-ray drives for Xbox...

Sigh, More Xbox 360 Blu-ray Rumors

DigiTimes added to the Xbox 360 rumors yesterday (April Fool’s Day), saying that they have a source who says “Lite-On IT is developing built-in Blu-ray Disc-(BD) ROM drives for the Microsoft Xbox 360 game console.” Today they are sticking by that with...

Microsoft: “Not currently in talks with Sony or the Blu-ray Association”

After all of my ramblings , and so many people saying that Microsoft already said they are supporting Blu-ray ( despite it being true at all ) Microsoft has finally made a statement about Blu-ray and the Xbox 360. Anyone care to guess how it goes? Aaron...

More Ramblings About Blu-ray & Xbox 360

At this point I’m either setting myself my for a huge fall or I’m exactly right, I’ll still let you be the judge of that but the more I think about Microsoft doing Blu-ray for the Xbox 360 (internal, external, new SKU, etc) the more it still doesn’t make...

Short Bits: Xbox 360 Blu, Cables

The Financial 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...

Fact or Fiction: Microsoft and Blu-ray

I’ve gotten a fair amount of reaction to the various articles I’ve posted on Microsoft and Blu-ray, and it still seems the overall consensus on the web is that Microsoft will fall head over heels for Blu-ray in their products. I want to preface this post...

Blu-ray on Xbox 360 Not Going to Happen

Some websites are reporting “rumors” of Microsoft getting ready to add Blu-ray support to the Xbox 360. I’m not going to link to the main website in question, because nothing on that site has ever been true (unless there is an Xbox 360 with HD DVD intergated...
