Microsoft: No Blu-ray Add-ons Coming To Xbox 360S

Despite what Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer may have implied, the company has "no plans" to bring Blu-ray playing accessories to the Xbox 360, according to a statement from the company.

Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb posting on his Xbox 360-centric blog today that Ballmer wasn't speaking about the Xbox platform during his interview with Gizmodo, instead saying those accessories were bound for the PC. More "poorly chosen words" or just a simple misunderstanding?

"As we have said in the past, we have no plans to introduce a Blu-Ray drive for the Xbox 360," Hryb reiterated. "In fact, the future of home entertainment starts very soon when Xbox 360 becomes the first and only console to offer instant-on 1080p streaming HD movies."
