Microsoft denies more Blu-ray add-on rumours

Microsoft has shot down an Engadget rumour that the company is developing a Lite-On Blu-ray drive for 360.

“No. Lite-On is not manufacturing Blu-ray drives for Xbox 360,” a spokesperson told Techradar. “As we have stated, games… are driving consumers to purchase game consoles and we remain focused on providing the largest library of blockbuster game available.

“For our customers who want a premium movie experience we offer the largest library of on-demand HD content available and the ability to play back DVDs in high definition.”

With Microsoft recently saying that discs will soon be archaic, holding your breath for a 360 Blu-ray add-on would probably be ill-advised.
