Default To 360-addon owners: Would you like a Blu-ray addon?

Now that HD DVD's light is fading I'm happy in a ways the war is over and its time to move on.

My question though: Would you people who use the 360 add-on for HD DVD enjoy or buy a Blu-Ray add-on drive if Microsoft eventually made one?

I sure would, it would be cheaper than a PS3...

)))) ..... except PS3 is not failing. It has already won Sony the Format war and is outpacing the Xbox 360 in console sales.

I have a PS3, an A3, and a 360 HD DVD drive. I'd rather see a $159 stand alone Blu-Ray player.

With Blu-Ray's stand alone pricing and the price of the PS3, it's hard to imagine entire households going blu until they can get the prices of stand alone players within a family's budget for the living room, bedrooms, etc.

No, thanks.

I use my 360 to play games.

I use a standalone player to watch movies.

No, it just has to remain relevant for almost a decade like the PS2.

I don't think MS will ever support Blu-ray Disc playback on the 360. MS HATES Sun Microsystems and will not want to support a Java-based format. It's one of the reasons they got behind HD DVD in the first place.
