Comment Re:What microsoft should do... (Score 1) 158

5.a drive that can play exisiting XBOX disks, DVDs, music CDs as well as special XBOX2 disks (using blu-ray or some other high-density standard to make them harder to copy). Add special features to the drive or the BIOS so that it will reject any disk with a signature indicating that its a recordable media (CD-R, DVD-R etc). This makes piracy even harder and also prevents running of pirate DVDs and music disks.

So if I want to use my X2 as a multimedia player at home I won't be able to watch DVD's I have authored myself or CD's that I have legally burnt from itunes. Or even personal backups of legally aquired media.
