Rumors are circulating again that a Blu-ray addon for the Xbox 360 will soon be made available. This rumor has been circulating for the last few months especially after HD-DVD’s defeat in the format wars, the losing format being backed by Microsoft. Sony has already made a statement that a BD in Xbox 360 is something that they will welcome. The rumors have gained traction because of reports that Toshiba-Samsung finishing the development of a BD add-on for the Xbox 360.
But it looks like this is just another unfounded rumor, especially in light of the fact that online distribution is the direction that the Xbox 360 wants to take. Until I see an actual BD add-on on display I’ll most likely believe these future add-ons as just hokum.
