Major Nelson dismisses Blu-ray link

Yesterday we reported that Microsoft CEO, Steve Ballmer, let slip that Blu-ray accessories could well be on their way to the Xbox 360.

Even though Microsoft already released a statement backtracking Ballmer’s comments, Major Nelson has today come out and pretty much closed the idea of Blu-ray coming to the Xbox. He said:

“During an interview yesterday, Steve Ballmer was asked about Blu-ray and the Xbox 360. I want to clear something up – Steve was referring to Blu-ray accessories for the PC. As we have said in the past, we have no plans to introduce a Blu-ray drive for the Xbox 360. 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. With a library of thousands of TV shows and movies to choose from, Xbox 360 owners can instantly watch the movies they want, when they want, in the highest form of high definition.”

Who knows what to make of this…
