Responding to media reports on the possible pullout of the HD DVD format, Microsoft Corp.'s Xbox division released an official statement on the impact of this development on the game console.

According to the statement, the Xbox division is confident that the recent reports will not have any material impact on the Xbox 360 platform or its position in the market. It reasoned that it is the games that sell the consoles, and the Xbox 360 provides a large library of next-generation and best-selling games.

The Xbox division added that it will wait to hear from Toshiba Corp. before announcing specific plans around the Xbox 360 HD DVD player. It added that HD DVD is one of several ways the game console can offer a high-definition experience to consumers, and that Xbox will continue to give consumers the choice to enjoy digital distribution of HD movies and TV shows.
