Will Blu-ray Be Added to the Xbox?
Sony and Microsoft are supposedly making nice, discussing a drive for the popular game console.

Soon, Xbox owners could be reaping high-def rewards—and we’re not talking about those with the HD DVD add-on.

Sony is currently talking with gaming rival Microsoft to make a Blu-ray drive for the Xbox 360. While a new drive may help spread the adoption of Blu-ray via the gaming geeks, it could also level the playing field between the two consoles.

There’s no word on when or in what form Microsoft might add on the feature. It might be integrated into a new, premium console—which might sting existing Xbox owners… especially those that invested the extra cash in the HD DVD add-on.

Naturally, Microsoft has no comment.
