The suggestion that Microsoft is about to adopt Blu-ray for their Xbox 360 consoles has been debunked somewhat as a top Microsoft exec has gone on record to deny it.

Aaron Greenberg, Microsoft's group marketing manager, stated in an interview that the company will not be producing Blu-ray-flavoured Xbox 360 hardware.

"Xbox is not currently in talks with Sony or the Blu-ray Association to integrate Blu-ray into the Xbox experience", Greenberg said.

This contradicts what American Sony president Stan Glasgow had recently revealed - that the two companies

were

in talks over Blu-ray hardware.

Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer was also recently quoted as saying: "We'll support Blu-ray in ways that make sense", but this "sense" seems not to encompass next-gen gaming.
