Remember all that chatter about Microsoft teaming with Toshiba to produce an Xbox360 with a built-in HD DVD player? According to Toshiba, we shouldn't be holding our breath. A Toshiba representative has made it known that Toshiba has nothing to do with an integrated HD DVD drive, citing Microsoft's word that they would never integrate the drive for cust reasons. However, with Blu-ray outselling HD DVD, it is not inconceivable to think that Microsoft will at some point introduce a premium model with the HD DVD player built-in, seeing as though the hardware prices for HD DVD players are falling more rapidly than Blu-ray.
