Look around and I guarantee one of your friends, or friend’s friends, has purchased a Sony PS3 just for the Blu-ray drive. Apparently, Microsoft might have gotten wind of this and decided to commission Toshiba-Samsung Storage Technology Corp. to build an external Blu-ray drive for the Xbox 360. Yup, it’s a rumor with no official announcement yet, but seems reasonable.
Question is, would you buy an external Blu-ray player for the 360? I might, but ultimately would prefer a stand alone box like the LG BD300.
