Toshiba on 360 with HD DVD

Rumors of an Xbox 360 console with HD DVD built in remain a possibility, Toshiba has allowed. The primary backer of the HD DVD format is said to be collaborating with Microsoft, hoping to provide an alternative to Sony's PlayStation 3, which has Blu-Ray built-in and is thus one of the cheapest means of acquiring an HD movie player. Stuff recently reported however that Toshiba was denying the rumor, saying in fact that "It's got nothing to do with us. But we know Microsoft doesn't want to include the HD DVD drive so as not to limit the user's experience."

Toshiba now claims this was a misquote, and that its statement should have read: "Toshiba has no comment to make on this matter. The Xbox 360 is not a Toshiba product." Stuff has since changed its article. This does not strictly support the existence of a HD DVD 360, but it leaves the chance open, as companies will frequently refuse to discuss real products until they are officially announced.
