I dout its real because that would hurt more in the long run. A developer then has to worry about compatibility and who has or hasn't upgraded, It basically will cause more problems for the developers, also probably scare more away since the best thing about consoles is that there is no worry about compatility and system specs since one Xbox/PS2 is the same as the other.

Almost every addon/upgrade to a console has been a failure or just not overly used/common.

I always felt MS secret to why there so confident in a early release may because the 360 may be upgradeable. So for we know the HD will be able to but I doubt anything else will when you really think about it. I doubt MS wants the 360 with upgrades people made to the video, memory and HD competing with there future console they may decide to release 5 years from now. It may come back to kick them in the ass.

...and that would be BS. The only thing upgradable on X360 is the faceplate and hard drive.

Also, they may release an X360 in the future that plays HD-DVD/Blu-Ray, but this will only be for movies, not games.
