My question is if the make it external or build it in, there will have to be some serious hardware upgrades to the audio subsystem as the current 360 cannot handle HD audio in any iteration.
If they nerf the blu-ray experience the same they did for HD-DVD, there is really no compelling reason to go blu on the 360 as my launch 60gb PS3 is still a more feature complete blu-ray player. (Yeah Im a MS fanboy too haha)
And if MS does upgrade the 360 to support HD audio for a blu-ray drive Ill be pissed WTF!!!! the great thing about consoles has been no upgrading required ala a PC. If they do this it will be the 3rd or 4th MAJOR hardware revision offering functionality change!!! And unlike a PC were u just change one component, Id have to change an entire Console!! Of course Ill probably do it, but Ill still be pissed.
But then again, while PS3 has been stripping out functionality with each revision, MS has been adding..... so I dont know who to hate more for f'n up my beloved upgradeless console paradigm......
but I digress
