Microsoft Says No To Blu-Ray Yes to Digital Downloads

There has been some speculation whether or not Microsoft will develop a Blu-ray Disc drive for the Xbox 360 after Sony claimed that it was in talks with Microsoft to incorporate the technology on the Xbox 360, and Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer confirming that Microsoft will support Sony's standard.

However, one thing is Microsoft supporting the technology in Windows and other products, but it's a complete different story to expect a Blu-ray Disc drive for the Xbox 360 and today, Aaron Greenberg, Group Marketing Manager for Xbox, has finally put an end to the rumor.

"Xbox is not currently in talks with Sony or the Blu-ray Association to integrate Blu-ray into the Xbox experience," Greenberg told Reuters in an interview.

The Xbox division is putting all its effort on digital downloads, which offer a profit Blu-ray Disc movies won't provide at all to the software giant.

"We're the only console offering digital distribution of entertainment content," emphasized Greenberg.

That will work in markets where typically broadband internet connections are flat fee and unlimited download... But in a market like Belgium, where your monthly download volume is limited to 12GB, and costing you extra evry GB following that, I see this becoming a costly proposition

Add in that their digital downloads are kinda pricey as it is
