Major Nelson squashes 360 Blu-ray dreams

Just as quickly as it came, so it is gone. Major Nelson has firmly squashed the rumor, furthered by Steve Ballmer, that the Xbox 360 would have a Blu-ray drive as an accessory. On his blog, Nelson said that Ballmer was referring to “Blu-Ray accessories for the PC.”

He continues that Microsoft has said in the past that there are no plans for the Xbox 360 to have a Blu-ray anything, and then directs our attention to the fact that the console will soon have instant-on streaming 1080p  movies, and that is where the future of home entertainment lies.
