MS so far is only committed to DVD. The HD-DVD thing is a rumor, that future units *may* switch to HD-DVD. But they may well switch to Blu-ray for that matter, if BD is taking the market share. MS is going to do what the market demands.

I know MS is working with Toshiba on firmware for HD-DVD players, but that doesn't necessarily imply anything about the Xbox 360 since MS keeps their fingers in everything.

Point taken. Regardless, the early block units won't have any of the next generation optical drives and that is close to a deal breaker for me. Non-consistent stock hardware across the line looks like a lot of problems in the future, with games not being able to use hardware that doesn't exist in the early block units or those units not being able to play 2007's games that require the high capacity drives.
