Xbox 360: Does it need Blu-Ray or DVDs?

Earlier on we told you how the UK Xbox boss Stephen McGill said that Blu-ray isn’t necessary for the Xbox 360, but now we want to know what you think about the matter, would you like to see the Blu-Ray format on your console?

Firstly, if you haven’t read up on McGill’s comments, you can do so by reading our previous report here. McGill basically said, ‘Blu-Ray – Who needs it?’, adding that the disc format used on the PS3 is going to become extinct as technology progresses towards digital distribution.

You could agree with him on the digital part of the argument, but I still think there is a place for Blu-Ray on the market, and especially on the Xbox 360 console. How many Xbox 360 owners can honestly say they don’t mind disc-switching for content heavy games on the 360? If there is an option to save developer’s time by putting it onto one Blu-Ray disc, then isn’t that better for everyone?

Microsoft say that they are cutting costs and it was a ‘smart decision’ to avoid Blu-Ray on the Xbox 360, but what do you think about this?

Let us know – Are you still happy using DVDs or would you prefer Blu-Ray in the future?
