No HD-DVD for Xbox Next


Recommended Posts



Although I'd love to have an HD-DVD player by year's end, free with my purchase of an Xbox Next, that is an unreasonable expectation. I think HD-DVD players will retail for around $1,000 when Xbox Next comes out. You can't expect consumers or Microsoft to absorb that cost for an unproven technology. By the time HD-DVD is accepted (or rejected) by the mainstream, we'll be talking about Xbox 3.


Of much higher priority is that the DAMN GAMES BE in HD please! Concentrate on that!

The wording of your title had me thinking this was a fact, but it's just a rumor still.

Everything for Xbox Next is a rumor until E3 wink.gif. The article got me to thinking though, that there is no way Xbox Next will have an HD-DVD drive. It just doesn't make sense at all. Frankly, I can barely believe that PS3 will have a blue-ray drive, except that Sony has an extra year for prices to come down, and they won't charge themselves a licensing fee.
