Microsoft: HD-DVD will have no impact on 360

Following the


that Toshiba has dropped the guillotine on its struggling HD-DVD format, Microsoft has said that it doesn’t believe the decision will have any impact on the next-gen console battle.

"We do not believe the recent reports about HD-DVD will have any material impact on the Xbox 360 platform or our position in the marketplace," a statement read.

"As we’ve long stated, we believe it is games that sell consoles and Xbox 360 continues to have the largest next-gen games library with the most exclusives and best selling games in the industry.

And as for the future of Microsoft’s dedicated Xbox 360 HD-DVD add-on, the company added: "We will wait until we hear from Toshiba before announcing any specific plans around the Xbox 360 HD-DVD player.”
