Default Microsoft: Blu-Ray Support Is Not a Requested Feature.

The current situation of the economy around the globe requests makers of popular devices to build-in more functionality into their products to stay competitive, however, this does not seem to be true for Microsoft Xbox 360 and Blu-ray format.

Even though our market sources indicated Microsoft Corp.ís intention to make available an external Blu-ray disc (BD) drive for Microsoft Xbox 360 video game console, the company itself claims that the platform does not need the support for the format. It is obvious that video game consoles are acquired to play games, but while the PlayStation 3 can play BD movies and Wii can be controlled by motion-sensing controllers, the Xbox 360 can support neither technology.
