Microsoft Taiwan says "no games on the HD-DVD" for the Xbox 360 in response to a question from developers of MMORPG’s. This makes sense as this would go the way of the Sega CD, because most people will not buy an HD-DVD drive just for "that one game".

Taiwan-based game developers think blue-laser support for games is key for the Xbox 360 to be competitive with the Sony PlayStation 3 (PS3) which will have a built-in Blu-ray Disc (BD) drive, the sources pointed out. These developers are disappointed that the external drive will not support games and feel unwelcomed by the HD-DVD interest group, the sources indicated.

While the Xbox 360 itself enables game software to attain high-resolution video performance, the external HD-DVD drive does not support games because such support may increase costs and decrease the stability of game software, Microsoft Taiwan noted.
