norm means that thru a addon it has HD-DVD support....
(also he might mean that it has the ability to play hd)
Quote:
The Xbox 360 supports videos in .wmv-format, as well as high-definition .wmv-videos, H.264, MPEG-4, and PlaysForSure WMV videos. The December 2007 dashboard update added support for the playback of MPEG-4 ASP format videos.[42] The console can also display pictures and perform slideshows of photo collections with various transition effects, and supports audio playback, with music player controls accessible through the Xbox 360 Guide button. Users may play back their own music while playing games or using the dashboard, and can play music with an interactive visual synthesizer.

but beside the point....
remember blu-ray is encrypted thru ACSS....

it needs to be extra secure so that hollywood doesnt freak out that there "property"
dosent leak out...

i mean it already has DRM included...

but this is different....

if there were to include ACSS and blu-ray support....
it would anti-competitive as there are other software players...

i would see it as downloadable addon (have to pay who knows?)

That's what I meant HD-DVD. It won't natively play blu-ray.

Microsoft would be foolish to continue to support only HD-DVD. The format war is over...Blu-Ray is the winner.

The lack of support is based on economics, Microsoft would have to pay to include Blu-Ray support, that could be a LOT of money.

Exactly - the winner comes at a price - licensing rights.

Well, none of my blurays are copy protected so it'd be nice if they at least support those.

Although it doesn't support it, I heard somewhere that a third party program will let you play HD-DVD/Blu ray through Medai Center.

I just tried this with the Win7 beta and the Media Center KB update.
BluRay is not suppported natively and requires another playback program such as Cyberlink PowerDVD 8.
