More than a year after Sony declared victory in the format war, it appears that Microsoft is officially embracing Blu-ray, to an extent. In an interview with Gizmodo, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer seemingly confirmed that the Xbox 360 will eventually be receiving an external Blu-ray drive.

Now I had noticed my controller still worked if I was in the bath etc.. but this is certainly kicking it up a notch to be able to track down the 360 once its stolen by seeing when it is within range. Shame they had already formatted the guys HDD though.

Well this sucks. It seems that a group of modders have found a way to use the Left 4 Dead mod tool pack to hack the game. With the tool pack, modders simply changed what they wanted using a data transfer cable and they were all set. Kinda ruins it for people playing on Xbox Live.

So we had price cuts 2 months ago.. and now its that time again. The new prices in about a month will be Arcade (no hard drive) $199, Pro (60GB) $299, and Elite (120GB) $399. I am not super surprised by this as I thought the first lot weren't all that big. I just assumed that there would be another cut in November. But I guess it comes sooner then that after all!

Sorry, Sony. The Xbox 360 is finally going to get a blockbuster RPG. Square has announced at the Microsoft press conference that Final Fantasy XIII is going to be released on Xbox 360 the same day as PS3 in North America and Europe. What a huge coup for Microsoft, and what a great piece of news for Xbox 360 owners who also happen to be great console RPG lovers.

This was indicated by statements from Aaron Greenburg. Greenburg went on to say that the 360 was still supply-constrained going into the month of February.

Microsoft has said multiple times in the past that it would make a blu ray addon drive for the 360 if HD-dvd lost. And well, now as that has happened, the rumours of when this addon will arrive have started to surface. May is suggested as the date by which this could occur.
