HD-DVD on the XBox 360

Filed under: Microsoft — Vamshi @ 6:12 pm

It’s been out in the news for a while now, but the HD-DVD add-on to the XBox 360 is coming in mid November for $199 in the US. I’m really looking forward to try this out. As a 360 owner, the price of entry to the technology is pretty low regardless of how the BluRay vs HD-DVD format war plays out. From other sources around the web, it seems like the price has received similar reactions from other 360 owners.

Some information on this:

XBox.com
Major Nelson’s posts on HD-DVD
Engadget (of course :)

As an aside, it looks like Netflix has a great implementation for the new formats. You pick which format player you have and they promise to automatically to send you an HD version instead of a DVD if the title has been released in that format. No confusing selection of DVD or HD-DVD for each movie you add to the queue.
