It would be silly of them not to. It a market that can be tapped, even it's it's just an add-on movie player.

Great. I hope I can stack it on top of my 360 HD-DVD drive.

yea it was just a matter of time. And I wouldn't be surprised to see an Elite with a built in bluray player in the near future.

Stand alone players are getting cheaper. Depending on the price, I'd probably rather go with one of those than some tacky looking add-on for the 360.They'd better keep it to movies when this does happen.

Blu-Ray players are getting a lot cheaper. An add on drive would have to be quite a bit cheaper to make it a viable option.

BD players this Christmas are supposed to be sub-$100. How cheap can this thing get? I might bite for $100, but I think something like $75 would be smarter.

I think Microsoft's track record for this generation says that it'll be overpriced. Watch it be $299.
