Screw downloading. You only have 24-hours to watch it, and then it's gone. Better to spend 2 or 3 times more and buy a disc.
I'd like a cheap Blu-ray drive for the 360, but it probably wouldn't be that cheap anyway, since Microsoft upcharges everything by a lot. You can get a computer internal Blu-ray drive for $130. That means Microsoft, as the middle man demanding profit, would probably charge $200. There's no point, really, unless you couldn't hook up your computer to a TV so using the Xbox would be better. But Microsoft charges $180 for a proprietary 120gb laptop hard drive. And an unholy $40 for a proprietary 512mb memory stick. Ack, they'd kill us on a Blu-ray drive.
just get a PS3 so you can play blu-rays :)
Blu-ray is going to be the primary higher definition format (since time warner signed on to blu-ray)... they have the majority of the market..I think it would be smart for microsoft to at least offer a blu-ray player at the same price as the HD-DVD player (which is still expensive) for the 360... time may change their minds..

The 360 HD-DVD player is only $50 at some places. I'd buy a Blu-Ray drive in a heartbeat at that price. But they couldn't see one that low without losses, I'm sure.
