Games Good news by Ars' Peter Bright. "According to an internal Microsoft e-mail sent to all full-time employees working on the next Xbox, 'Durango [the codename for the next Xbox] is designed to deliver the future of entertainment while engineered to be tolerant of today's Internet.' It continues, 'There are a number of scenarios that our users expect to work without an Internet connection, and those should 'just work' regardless of their current connection status. Those include, but are not limited to: playing a Blu-ray disc, watching live TV, and yes playing a single player game.'" Conveniently 'leaked' of course.

Now days, it will be like 'well of course it has a bluray player! Why wouldn't it?


True. It's pretty much too late for the Bluray to actually be a major selling feature of the next Xbox, but it doesn't hurt. ;)

Also let it be noted that I am a huge fan of Bluray, especially now that prices have come down to "normal" levels and a lot of stuff has been remastered for the format. If you have an HDTV and care even a little bit about picture quality, yet you still don't have some kind of Bluray player, you are really missing out.
