And here's Major Nelson to say no, we aren't planning a Blu-Ray drive for the 360

Earlier, Steve Ballmer sort of slipped up and said will be able to get Blu-Ray drives as accessories. The conversion is really all about the 360 so naturally, people thought that Microsoft might be coming out with ea Blu-Ray drive as an add-on in the future.

Cue Major Nelson as he blogs that there are no plans and that Ballmer was really talking about PCs and not the 360. I don't buy the explanation that he was referring to the PC because the sentence right before is the interviewer asking about the 360 being the central media hub and if they would think about putting a Blu-Ray drive in there.

As far as I'm concerned, do it or don't do it. I don't really care anymore. In fact, I've really cut back on purchasing media since Blu-Ray became the HD format of choice. I have an extensive DVD collection but when it comes to movies coming out on Blu-Ray, it's hard for me to purchase ones as an impulse buy based on the current costs of the movies.
