- Microsoft's on-again, off-again relationship with an Xbox 360 Blu-ray drive looks set to be on again this Monday. As you all know by now, Monday marks the beginning of Apple's annual WWDC, and a little bird told us something is going to be announced by Steve Jobs
there during his keynote.
Microsoft doesn't care; a tipster told CrunchGear it's going to "upstage" Jobs, Apple and the entire known tech-using world by announcing an Xbox 360 with Blu-Ray drive one hour before the beginning of the conference.
Wrote the tipster: I've got a close friend who works at Microsoft, previously with the HD-DVD division and now in the E&D division (Xbox, zune).
I'm told MS will upstage Apple with a Monday 9am PDT announcement (1 hour before WWDC) via press release that the Xbox 360 will get Blu-Ray before Christmas. Price was "under the current Elite", but i couldn't get any more details.
