Microsoft and Blu-Ray

HD DVD has been having a rough time lately, and now that Wal-Mart has pulled HD DVD, it’s pretty much over. Microsoft needs to respond.

Here’s the situation that millions of Xbox 360 owners are in: We want HD movies. Nobody’s going to buy an HD DVD drive for the 360 now, and HD movie downloads, while attractive, are only available in the US. And you don’t get the extras that you get on the Blu-Ray discs.
The best Blu-Ray player is a PS3.

If Microsoft doesn’t introduce a Blu-Ray drive for the 360 soon, a lot of current 360 owners are going to buy a PS3 to use as a Blu-Ray player. I know I’m thinking about it.
