Microsoft has no plans of developing a XBOX 360 with an Internal HD DVD Drive

There have been some rumors that have been flying around about the XBOX 360 recently that claimed that Microsoft would be coming out with a XBOX 360 that would come with a build in HD DVD player. Well, on the official Microsoft XBOX blog, it was stated that these rumors were officially false and that Microsoft is not considering developing a XBOX 360 with a HD DVD player.

The system will have an external HD DVD player, but again there are no plans on launching an internal player. The exact post on the blog was this:
“[We] 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.
We’ve always had a games-first emphasis with the Xbox, but some consumers can build on the platform – like by adding a Windows Media Center Edition PC. By keeping the drive external, we’re offering consumers a choice in creating their own hi-def experiences. So: no plans for an internal HD DVD.”
