    Have you ever taken a business class? If you know anything, it should be that Sony doesn't give a shit about consumers. So why update the BD standard? Because people want all of those extra features? Well, now that HD DVD is dead, they don't need to do that. Sony is now in the HD market fighting the other BD player makers.

    So I suppose all the HD-DVD attachment will be in the bargain bins now. Or can they be modified to play Blu-Ray?

    That's much less probable than even saying modding a CD drive to play DVD. Blue laser and Red laser makes a world of difference. You need a completely different read head the reason that's making those HD-DVD and Bluray combo players so expensive.

    HD-DVD uses a Blue Laser as well. It reads completely different though.

    Microsoft Says No Blu-Ray for X360

    "Xbox is not currently in talks with Sony or the Blu-ray Association to integrate Blu-ray into the Xbox experience," Greenberg told Reuters in an interview...

    PS4 may be "sans disc"

    Since there is now a winner, I'd buy a blu-ray addon for my 360.

    I'm sure they'll produce one. and if they do and push it enough, they'll have a decent contender to the ps3.

    They already said they wouldn't.

    (News travels slow on this site. Everyone knew this report was debunked a few days ago. No Blu-Ray for Xbox 360.)

    That's funny, cause they said they would before!

    Also "Not currently in talks" is hardly a denial.

    I, for one, couldn't care less about optical disks. I don't even intend to buy an optical drive for my next PC (whenever I buy one). Seriously, I don't remember the last time I watched an actual DVD. All movies I watch are either downloaded through torrent trackers or from a digital video rental service (be it Microsoft's Video Marketplace, Apple's iTunes or my local digital TV provider) .

    Disks get scratched way to easily (even if handled carefully), the drives are usually loud, [movies] usually cost more, and the hard-drives are cheaper and cheaper. The only reason I still have a DVD burner in my machine is to rip DVDs unavailable on the Internet and burning games for Wii and 360.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Blu-Ray will soon fail, as I am about to release a new disc format.
    It is called Wanque-Ray, and it beams stuff right into your eyes, with a hot laser.

    And you're an inspiration for birth control.

    Seriously, what's with the attitude? ZeWarrior was just stating a true fact, and he is right, since people did initially say that PS3's blu-ray would flop. There's no need to be all pissy JohnDrake.

    He has valid reasons to go 'TOLD YOU SO', you have to admit though.
