    Awesome news. The Xbox 360 will be released with an integrated Blu-Ray player Q3 this year.
    I'm sure a lot of people have been waiting for this.

    Source

    EDIT:
    It appears I was probably wrong, as sources indicate it was a rumour started by a Taiwanese news site.

    Integrated, I wasn't expecting that. I wonder if they'll have a different name for this console version.

    Wow, pretty cool. Wasn't expecting integrated either. Don't think I'll be buying one, though.

    I don't trust this news. There were enough rumors of new 360 models which were declared fake and this one here wasn't confirmed by MS either so let's just see what happens. [​IMG]

    Also this would be stupid.
    They would screw all 360 owners and also it would probably cost more than the elite and or we have already enough versions.

    It hasn't been confirmed by the big Microsoft.

    Blu-Ray player as an add-on : believable

    Blu-Ray player as an add-on, with an integrated model to be released in the future : believable

    Only an integrated version to be released : not believable

    Well, fair enough if you don't believe it, but I trust the site. Plus, I would be willing to fork out for an X360 with a Blu-Ray player, so why wouldn't anyone else. Seems like a good decision to me. External ones are messy and annoying. And they'd have to charge more overall.

    If a 360 owner, who didn't already own a PS3 or a bluray player, wanted bluray, they'd be better off buying a PS3 ... that's what I did ...

    yeah what Bob said. That would be really stupid of Xbox. People would just buy a PS3 rather than replace their Xbox.

    If they bring out an external thing it would be awesome.

    I have no idea about both sources given in this topic, but with no mention of an add-on it definitely isn't believable. Microsoft will eventually do something to make a push for more sales. Whether it be Blu-Ray or possibly a better scheme of downloadable content, who knows. An integrated solution, definitely not.

    Hm, okay, sounds like case closed. Don't see why the website was stupid enough to base what it said on a Taiwanese news site.
    Guess that's it.
    Unless Bill is keeping it as a super secret special surprise! [​IMG]
