Xbox 360 Blu-Ray Rumors Resurface

The rumor of the day is on X-bit labs where they have revived speculation that a Blu-Ray add-on is in the works for the Xbox 360, which has been denied several times in the past by Microsoft. They say "market sources" tell them a joint venture between Samsung and Toshiba called Storage Technology Corp has been contracted to create an external Blu-Ray drive, saying the price point for such a product is rumored to be in the range of $100.00-$150.00. They also have an informative recap of the background of the MS/HD-DVD versus Sony/Blu-Ray divide and speculation about when such a product might be unveiled.

I was going to get a drive for the PC but found out I'd need a new video card for the HDCP, which would mean upgrading my aged PSU.

Or you could get AnyDVD HD and just skip the HDCP crap altogether.

Frankly I think it's overpriced, but it does work as promised for me.

On a side note, I imagine we'll see at least one standalone Blu-Ray player at or under $200 on Black Friday. You can already find them around $230 (specifically the Samsung BD-1500, although the Sony BDP-S350 is around $260).
