Microsoft has quickly refuted rumours about an internal HD DVD drive for Xbox 360. The rumours started when a Toshiba exec speculated that Microsoft would release an internal HD DVD drive by the end of the year.
Cesar Menendez, member of Microsofts Global Games Marketing Team wrote: ”Saw a few stories online about an Xbox 360 with a built-in HD DVD drive: not true. We have no plans to release an Xbox 360 with an internal HD DVD. What we showcased at E3 was an external HD DVD drive, and we´re sticking with that.”
Again, the back door is open ”…no plans to release…”. However, Menendez didn´t trash the simultaneous rumour, that Microsoft is making a Xbox 360 & external HD DVD drive bundle for this year´s holidays.
