Source? Also exclusive deals can be broken with money. Microsoft would pay the many groups (Including Sony) for Blu-ray. --- http://i.imgur.com/HLzCM.gif http://zorcorner.webs.com/1242909212_sexy_girl_vs_yoga_ball.gif
This sounds like some crap that kids in school would make up to make their console sound cooler. --- GameFAQs isn't going to be merged in with GameSpot or any other site. We're not going to strip out the soul of the site. -CJayC
Well I don't believe this rumour but I have seen it posted on thesixaxis.com.
The rumour comes from an Italian entertainment company and suggests that the new Microsoft console would not be able to play blu-ray movies until 2014 due to Sonys exclusive deal. It also states that this exclusivity deal maybe localised to Europe or even just Italy so the delay would only effect these territories.
Plus the console could still be released this year without this functionality and patched in once the deal expires.
