    said Microsoft VP Peter Moore. The software giant remains "fully committed" to HD DVD and current reports indicating that Microsoft has a back-up plan which includes Blu-ray support are incorrect.

    make sense as microsoft is a huge backer of the HD-DVD format. wouldnt make sense for them to back Blu-Ray.

    I hope no one expected Microsoft to pay Sony for Blu-ray technology (and licensing), or for Sony to accept the agreement.

    It would make sense for either party's consoles to support both, because it potentially would sell more units, but from a competition standpoint, neither company wants to support the other in any way.

    It's not like Sony runs Vista or XP on their machines either.....
