You were told wrong. The 360 can and never will be able to play blu-ray. It can however play 3d games such as Batman, Call of Duty Black ops and Gears of War 3.

even if the new console has s bluray drive - rather than another high capacity format - it is unlikely to play movies as they would have to pay extra licence fees to sony amongst others.

They paid the licence for DVD on the 360. Even on the original Xbox, when DVD was still an emerging format they released a DVD remote & adaptor and just paid the licence on each one of those sold rather than on every console.

If they want the next Xbox to be a central entertainment hub, they'd be foolish to ignore Blu-ray, despite their interest in digital downloads.
