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.

So I'm not real sure that blurray is still the draw it once was. It's a nice extra, but I don't reckon it's going to be the deciding factor for a lot of people. Now days, it will be like 'well of course it has a bluray player! Why wouldn't it?


Well, yeah... the PS3 came out with BR something like seven years ago now. How seriously would people take the next Xbox, if it were shipping without it now?
