Microsoft Dismisses Blu-Ray Technology

Microsoft has never been shy about its opinion on Blu-Ray, especially in the early days with the HD DVD vs Blu-Ray war, but now they've completely dismissed it altogether.

Speaking to Xbox360Achievements, Stephen McGill stated "Actually Blu-ray is going to be passed by as a format. People have moved through from DVDs to digital downloads and digital streaming, so we offer full HD 1080p Blu-ray quality streaming instantly, no download, no delay.

"So, who needs Blu-ray?"

It's interesting to see Microsoft do a complete 180, but it pretty much flat-lines any talk about Blu-Ray ever appearing on an Xbox 360 console.
