Hey now, what’s this we hear about Microsoft finally acting on the long-running storage-envy it has going of the PS3? According to Major Nelson, Microsoft is poised to try out a new Xbox 360 disc format and is asking for beta testers. Of course, this raises a whole fleet of questions, many of them containing the words “Blu-Ray”, as well as some painful memories for people who still wipe the dust off their HD-DVD players every day because they just didn’t have the heart to unplug that thing and sell it for the 50p it’s worth.
“We are conducting an open call for US based participants for a public preview to help us prepare for an updated Xbox 360 disc format,” read the official call to arms. Participants might even get a free copy of Halo Reach out of it and Xbox Live Gold members will have priority, because if it’s anyone not likely to own Halo Reach already, it’s Xbox Live Gold members.Filed Under: Gaming News, Technology News
