    According to Albert Penello, group marketing manager for Xbox hardware, the Xbox 360 console could be equipped with a Blu-ray add-on in the future if HD DVD fails to take off. Penello said:

    WOW M$ bowing to the pressure from Sony. Thats is just amazing. Im so glad I have a PS3(I am not a fan of X-box but I waited it out for quite some time to move to HD and Sony had the better product for me)I have mainly used my consoles for Media more so than I game on them.

    I have chosen wisely:pimp:

    Actually they have said this every year. Its always been possible for Microsoft to have a Blu Ray Drive instead of an HD DVD drive

    I cant believe Microsoft is saying this. I honestly dont want just one format. Id like HD DVD to survive. Offers more choices and competition.

    absolutely!
    I guarantee if BR was the only format, I wouldn't have been able to afford a player.

    Why do we have to do what you tell us to. If Wanrner had gone to HD DVD you wouldnt be saying that now would you?
