Built-in Blue-Ray drive coming to XBOX360

Recommended Posts

At the end of the year a new version with a built-in blue-ray drive will replace the current models of the xbox360. A subsidiary of asus has been found in preparation for the assembly line. The drives themselves are supposedly build by Lite On. The introduction will mean 'old' models will get a significant pricecut.

 

Microsoft obviously denies it all, as it would seriously cut sales if they openly admitted to planning this new feature which would instantly make all other xbox versions near obsolete (slight exaggeration :p ).

 

In any case, if you were planning on buying one, I'd hold for half a year. If you've already got one, you may consider selling it within half a year, before the masses become aware of the introduction of the new version. :cyclops:

Is the Xbox360 the only console that can play Halo 3? Just curious.

At the moment, but like Halo 1 & 2, it'll probably be out for the PC in the near future.

i would like to see it cross over to PS3.. I have never played the game, but have heard wonderful things. It could potentially look a whole lot better on the PS3 as well.

That's good to hear that Halo 3 may come to the PC. Why pay $500+ for a machine that will be completely obsolete just to play games that can made for PC and therefore more accessible to those who have the neccessary PC already.

 

The rush to get Grand Theft Auto 4 reminds me of the rush to get Halo 3.
