Microsoft says "Hell no" to Blu-ray

There has been talk recently about Microsoft possibly supporting Blu-ray in the future. It's an understandable speculation. What if HD-DVD doesn't really take off? Would Microsoft jump ship and support the other team? Microsoft has decided to settle the matter.

According to them, they are "fully committed to HD-DVD and have absolutely no plans to support other optical formats." That should pretty much settle things. Microsoft will support HD-DVD until the end of time.

It will be interesting if Blu-ray were to come ahead and win the format war. It's always amusing to see Microsoft eat their words.
