Blu-ray add-on headed to the Xbox 360?


Staff member

Thanks to a popular Italian Xbox 360 magazine, the oft-rumored Xbox 360 Blu-ray add-on is back in the news.

For years now, there have been rumors that Microsoft will launch a Blu-ray add-on similar to the HD-DVD add-on the company released in 2007 when the two formats were fighting for supremacy.

The magazine says Microsoft is working on an external Blu-ray drive that could also "act as an external hard drive" and let gamers backup their game saves and DLC.

Of course, like in the past, file this under speculation.

Hopefully this will never happen, noone wants two disk drives for one xbox. Hopefully they learned that from the HDDVD flop add on.
Stick the dam player into the xbox and be done with it!
