Microsoft has issued a statement on the impending announcement on the fate of HD-DVD from Toshiba, saying that the company’s withdrawal from the next gen disc space won’t have “any material impact on the Xbox 360 platform or our position in the marketplace” adding that “it is games that sell consoles.”

“We will wait until we hear from Toshiba before announcing any specific plans around the Xbox 360 HD DVD player,” said the statement.

Microsoft’s comment follow a turbulent few days for HD-DVD, with an announcement expected to confirm on Tuesday that Toshiba is to drop the format altogether.
