“Microsoft Corp is not in talks to include Sony Corp’s Blu-ray high-definition DVD technology in its Xbox 360 video game console, an executive said on Wednesday,” Scott Hillis reports for Reuters.
“The comments by Aaron Greenberg, group product manager for Xbox 360, poured cold water on recent speculation that Microsoft could support Blu-ray after Toshiba Corp, backer of the rival HD DVD format, gave up when key movie studios and retailers abandoned the technology,” Hillis reports. “‘Xbox is not currently in talks with Sony or the Blu-ray Association to integrate Blu-ray into the Xbox experience,’ Greenberg told Reuters in an interview.”
