No Blu-ray drive for Xbox 360?

Aaron Greenberg, group product manager for the Microsoft Xbox 360, said that “Xbox is not currently in talks with Sony or the Blu-ray Association to integrate Blu-ray into the Xbox experience.”

Instead, he says that the console will continue to focus on online distribution and pointed out that they are “the only console offering digital distribution of entertainment content.”

When Steve Ballmer said that Microsoft is already working on supporting Blu-ray for Windows at their Mix08 Internet conference last week in Las Vegas, it was assumed by some that this was hint that support for the format would also be heading to the Xbox 360. I guess that rumor can be put to bed, at least for right now.
