Bico, I don't see M$ switching to Blu-Ray. They have a great download service for movies and TV shows now, and people seem to be making great use of it. I don't think supporting Blu-Ray is needed.
Then why did they bother making the HD-DVD drive, especially if it's on a relatively slow connection (making it near useless for games)?
Sure they have digital downloads, but that limits the media you buy to just one unit: your 360. You can't just pop the disc out and bring it to your friend's house for movie night; you either have to bring your entire 360 or log in with your gamertag on theirs and re-download the movie.
Besides, call me old-fashioned but I prefer having physical media. Sure it doesn't have the same instant gratification factor downloads do, but at least you know it will work on just about anything with little hassle.
