Rumor: Microsoft Will Announce Xbox 360 Blu-ray Drive Monday? Maybe Not..
Rumors are flying out this morning that Microsoft will be annoucning a Blu Ray drive for the Xbox 360 tomorrow approximately one hour before Apple’s WWDC key note. Apparently someone from Microsoft had leaked the following statement:
I‘ve got a close friend who works at Microsoft, previously with the HD-DVD division and now in the E&D division (Xbox, zune). I’m told MS will upstage Apple with a Monday 9am PDT announcement (1 hour before WWDC) via press release that the Xbox 360 will get Blu-Ray before Christmas. Price was “under the current Elite”, but i could get any more details.
If this is indeed true I am assuming it will be external just like the HD DVD add on was. If the drive is indeed internal the last statement bothers me, the price will be “under the current Elite” so one would assume over the current Premium SKU price.
