So there are rumors abound that Microsoft is set to reveal some big news at CES. What is it is anyone's guess. One guess I've heard is that they will unveil another (what is this, like #6) SKU that includes HD-DVD. Who knows if that's gonna be what it is or not, but for the purpose of discussion I'll share my views on this. If it becomes for the purpose of playing games that would pretty much be MS giving a big 'ol middle finger to everyone who already bought a 360 (if the 30%failure rate wasn't bad enough). It was obvious from the start that games were going to require more than just a single DVD, and manufacturers aren't going to want to have 3+ disc games because it costs them that much more to manufacture and print the things. So yeah, if (big if) that does become a reality, I might as well stick my 360 in the closet because I'll have nothing to play a year from then and there's no way I'd be able to sell the thing. It'd be like trying to find CD games on the PS2 (yeah, they exist!). There'd be no way in hell I'd go out and buy another 360 because if I did I might as well go find Bill Gates, drop my knickers, and bend over. So yeah, if that does happen, oh man, that would be bad. Not saying it will. It could still just be strictly for playing the movies, if in fact this unsubstantiated HD-DVD rumor is actually true. But you do have to kinda wonder why MS would waste their time and money manufacturing and marketing a new HD-DVD SKU strictly for movies when the format is already apparently losing by a considerable margin to Blu-Ray. Doesn't seem like a good investment. Anyway, what are your thoughts, forum people?
