Microsoft Warming up to Blu-ray?

And just like that, the format wars take an unexpected twist…

BBC News, while talking to industry people about the impending European launch of Sony’s PlayStation 3, managed to grab this snippet from Neil Thompson – the UK Xbox boss:


Microsoft sells a HD-DVD player add-on for Xbox, which plays high definition movies in a rival format.

Mr Thompson said it did not matter which high definition DVD video system wins the format war.

Whatever format wins it is highly likely we will offer a solution,” he said.

They’ve said this before, if blu-ray becomes the winner they will offer a player as well, which is fine by me. It seems their still hard on their stance that it’s a consumers choice above anything else.
