Microsoft backtracks Ballmer's Blu-per

No Xbox 360 Blu-ray drive en-route

Microsoft has once again been forced to clear up after its outspoken CEO, Steve Ballmer, who recently said that Blu-ray is coming to the Xbox 360.

In a video interview published last week, Ballmer was asked if Microsoft plans to put Blu-ray into the games console. “You’ll be able to get Blu-ray drives as accessories,” was his response, though he indicated the format won't be integrated into the Xbox itself.

However, Microsoft’s official Xbox blogger, Major Nelson, has since published a clarification in which the firm claimed Ballmer was talking about Blu-ray accessories for the PC.

“We have no plans to introduce a Blu-ray drive for the Xbox 360,” said the Major Nelson statement.

Back in June, Microsoft similarly retracted Ballmer’s comments suggesting that a new Xbox 360 console featuring the Project Natal gaming peripheral would emerge in 2010. ®
