Will Nextbox have a Blu-Ray drive?

Some of you may remember all the fuss surrounding 360's "ancient" DVD drive compared to the Blu-Ray format PS3 supports and that DVD "holds back multiplatform games" etc. Blu-Ray was victorious over the other HD format, HD-DVD, that MS supported. Now that 8 more years have almost passed since 360 came out, will MS fully embrace Blu-Ray with their next-gen console offering? Will we see bigger, more open games because of it?

Don't know, don't really care either way.

Can you alter the poll to include "not arsed"

Ta.


I hope we see bigger games next gen, if MS doesn't use blu ray then I guessing they will have a proprietary disc that holds as much as a blu ray disc.

Nah, just vote "See results" or don't vote. I really only want to see the yes's and no's. But please do comment if you agree with Kowen, people!

Indeed. Doesn't WiiU even use a 25GB proprietary disc format? I think they'll certainly not go for DVD again at least. 



Hopefully, DVD has held this gen back so much.

It will definitely come with an odd that delivers more space for disks. So it could be bluray but not necessarily (like WiiU). But as the time for optical discs is almost over it's becoming more and more meaningless.
Btw, the dvd-drive was no problem for x360, I think. And no, we won't see bigger, more open games because of bluray but because of newer technology built in future consoles.



I'm hoping it's cartridges!!

They will definitely not want to pay Sony for their discs so they will use their own new disc format.

don't waste time
