Since the demise of the HD DVD format there have been rumors that Microsoft, an early backer of HD DVD, would offer Xbox 360 owners a Blu-ray player add-on. While the Blu-ray Xbox 360 rumor runs rampant, Microsoft denies it will offer a Blu-ray option.
Neil Thompson from Microsoft has says that downloads rather than physical media will be the norm over the coming years and says Microsoft has always said online is the way to go. Microsoft maintains that HD movies will simply be downloaded opening the Xbox 360 up to become a movie rental device similar to the Apple TV device.
"But there was a time gap of us launching and getting to that world. We knew certain of our customers would want a hi-def format and we thought the most cost-efficient way of doing that was going down the hi-def peripheral route."

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
