Blu-Ray Definitely coming for XBOX 360

XBOX 360 Finally Getting Blu-ray - Tom's Hardware

Well, it looks like the rumors are now confirmed:

"After months of rumors and denials, the XBOX 360 with a Blu-ray disc drive is due to be manufactured soon and shipped in Q3 of 2008. Pegatron Technology, an OEM subsidiary of Asustek Computer, is reported to have received the winning order from Microsoft for a Blu-ray equipped XBOX 360."

Now with the HD-DVD/Blu-ray format war concluded, things are going to start shaping up for a console war: PS3 v. the 360. With the new next-gen format supported on both systems, the 360 will start facing competition as developer and consumer interest in the PS3 rises. But then, this development might only cement Microsoft's lead over the 360...only time will tell.
