Sony and Microsoft Discussing Blu-ray Drive for Xbox 360

Stan Glasgow, president and chief operating officer of Sony Electronics, has revealed that the Japanese electronics maker is in talks with Microsoft about offering a Blu-ray Disc drive for the Xbox 360. The Financial Times reports:

But after Sony’s victory last month in the high-definition DVD format war, Stan Glasgow, Sony Electronics US president, said the two sides were now talking about Microsoft adopting Blu-ray.

A Blu-ray drive in a 360 would make Microsoft more competitive with the PS3, but it would also mean extra revenues for Sony’s electronics division. It would also add further cost to the 360, meaning a premium edition of the console could be necessary.

So I wonder if Sony could just say "no, we're not selling you Blue Ray technology!" ??? That would really suck for M$. Somehow I think that would break some sort of anti-trust laws or something.

The prices on the 360 and ps3 are already comparable... if M$ has to jump up the price on their Elite... yikes!!

A Microsoft spokesperson provided the following comment in regards to this article:

"We have made no such announcement. Games are what are driving consumers to purchase game consoles and we remain focused on providing the largest library of blockbuster games available."

I know, I was just being a smartass.

Also, I think it might not be released for the 360 too, now that HD is dead. I know they have said it was going to be released, but I have a feeling it will switch to PS3 for capacity reasons. I mean Kojima is bitching about the amount of space he has on BR; MGS4 is coming out in June; and they don't have enough space on BR so they had to cut back some of the dialog and put the MP/Online on a separate disc.

Either way, if they could figure out a way to keep in compressed, they would make much more money delivering it for both systems. Either way I can't wait for RE5

For a hefty price, unless there are laws restricting them from doing so.

I wouldn't be surpised at all to see a bluray addon drive for the 360.
As for integrating one into the 360, thats another beast entirely. Whatever they do, they will never be able to take advantage of bluray drive for games, because there are 12 million xbox360's out there already that don't have that ability. They could make it just for movies, as long as the drive also reads standard DVD's.
