Ballmer: 'you'll be able to get Blu-ray drives' for Xbox 360

Blu-ray drives accessories coming to Xbox, says Microsoft CEO

Gizmodo recently had the chance to talk to Steve Ballmer, Microsoft CEO and noted fan of developers (YouTube). While the man oversees all parts of Microsoft's empire, the conversation naturally had a large focus on the company's video game console, the Xbox 360. Most notably, when asked about Blu-ray, Ballmer rejected the idea of adding an internal drive, saying "you'll be able to get Blu-ray drives as accessories."

Is this actually in the works, or just a misquote from someone outside of the core Xbox team? Gizmodo asked a Microsoft representative, who chose not to comment on the subject, making the possibility seem even more likely. You can find the entire chat about Blu-ray, as well as a semi-admission that Natal is a way to indefinitely extend this console generation, at Gizmodo.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
