We all have been wondering what Microsoft will do, when the Playstation 3 with its Blu-Ray drive comes out. Now Microsoft has announced that they will sell an external HD-DVD drive. No mention about the price has been made. I can see the day when the HD-DVD drive for the Xbox 360 becomes manatory to play the newest games, as they get more complex and thus bigger in size as time goes by.

That's realy bad news for Xbox 360 users.Especially for the one's that bought the Core system and recently bought n additional HDD.Now they will have tp spend even more money on a external HD-DVD drive.

But we saw that coming, didn't we ?
