Microsoft backpedals on Blu-ray for Xbox 360 comments

HD DVD or die!

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Microsoft today stressed that it believes HD DVD is the best optical disc for consumers and that it has no plans to support Blu-ray Disc on the Xbox 360, despite recent comments from company staffers that it might.

The company reaffirmed its love for HD DVD following a news story in which Microsoft suggested it might back Blu-ray if that's what its customers wanted.

After Reuters asked Microsoft’s group marketing manager for Xbox hardware, Albert Penello, if Microsoft would support a Blu-ray Disc drive accessory in the event that HD DVD failed, he said: "It should be consumer choice, and if that's the way they vote, that's something we'll have to consider."

However, Microsoft today said that HD DVD remains the only format to deliver quality experiences at affordable prices.

It won't need to support Blu-ray, because HD DVD isn't going to fail, is it?

Glad we got that one cleared up.
