Xbox 360 to Get a New Disc Format – Blu Ray Perhaps?

Submitted by on Friday, 1 April 2011No Comment

A XBox 360 dashboard update is coming soon so stay tuned to your consoles for that. In addition there is a new preview program where beta users can test the system updates before going live.

“We are conducting an open call for US based participants* for a public preview to help us prepare for an updated Xbox 360 disc format,” says the Major, with the caveat that “*Due to disc distribution limitations, this beta it will be limited to residents of the United States only.”

Most likely it will not be a Blu Ray format or a hybrid of Blu Ray but rather a format called XGD3 which stands for Xbox Game Disc V3. The update will most likely be a firmware update for the existing drives since making everyone updgrade to a new drive is highly unlikely.
