Default Microsoft: We are still dedicated to the HD DVD format

According to gaming site kotaku.com Microsoft has made it clear that they remain dedicated to the HD DVD format. "There was a critical element of our comments missing from the story -- Microsoft currently has no plans at this time to consider Blu-ray as an option. We continue to believe that HD DVD is the best optical solution for consumers, since it's the only format today that delivers quality experiences at affordable prices." a MS spokesperson clarified.

Glad somebody is at least sticking with us. And this one I actually believe 100%. I seriously don't think M$ will drop HD-DVD until the very day it's 100% officially dead.

"no current plans to consider Blu-ray as an option"

Actually yes. If they wouldn't use this term people all around the world could sue them for the "fact of missleading" (especially the people in this little country called USA would do so ) if they wouldn't stick to their plans till the end.

It's nice to hear, but I've not seen anything from MS other than the 360 add on.
