Rumor: External Blu-ray drive coming to the Xbox 360

Umm. I don’t know about this one.

Xbitlabs is reporting that Toshiba-Samsung Storage Technology Corp has been charged with pumping out external Blu-ray drives for the Xbox 360. They will supposedly retail anywhere from $100 to $150. Not citing any sources makes this one a bit hard to believe. There’s also speculation that Microsoft could launch this external drive for the holiday shopping season, which is basically now, but could happen at CES. Hell, maybe they’ll announce it at TGS.
