    Microsoft Adding Sony Blu-ray Support To Windows

    I'm pretty sure you will see this move to Xbox too...

    Microsoft (NSDQ: MSFT) is developing software that will add native support for devices that play Sony's Blu-ray high definition movie format to the Windows operating system, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer said.

    "We've already been working on, for example, in Windows, device driver support for Blu-ray drives and the like," said Ballmer, speaking at the Microsoft's Mix '08 conference. Ballmer also said that Microsoft is "going to support Blu-ray in ways that are important," according to a transcript of his remarks posted on the company's Web site.

    The Mix '08 conference was held last week in Las Vegas.

    Microsoft until recently used Toshiba's HD DVD format to add HD movie playback to its Xbox 360 gaming console. That practice abruptly ended last month when Toshiba announced its decision to kill HD DVD after virtually all major Hollywood studios threw their weight behind Blu-ray.

    Pretty sure we may see an BD add on for the 360 soon.
