Lite-On’s shipments of the BD ROMs to Microsoft will start in the second half of this year – currently the company is one of the suppliers of Xbox 360-use internal DVD-ROM drives.

Microsoft recently switched to BD for its Xbox 360 game consoles after Toshiba announced to discontinue HD DVD.

The BD-ROM drives that Lite-On is developing for Microsoft are for the next-generation Xbox 360 game consoles, according to industry sources.

Power supply makers also revealed that while the present Xbox 360 uses a 210-watt power supply, the next-generation game console will use a 170-watt power supply in order to reduce production cost and the size of the device, according to industry sources.

Lite-On says it has already started steady shipments of BD-ROM drives and BD burners.
