[QUOTE]Speculation: Microsoft may integrate HD DVD into Xbox 360

Filed under: Microsoft Xbox 360, CES
This Sunday will mark the end of an era: Bill Gates is going to deliver his final CES keynote in Las Vegas. Nevertheless, the rumor mill continues to churn, unwilling or unable to pause briefly and reflect on the legac ...

... whoa, sorry about that. On to the rumor du jour: Seattle Times staff columnist Brier Dudley speculates that Microsoft "may be preparing to license the Xbox gaming platform to consumer-electronics companies." While you look up 3DO on Wikipedia (we'll help you out), we'll continue with the specifics of this speculation. Dudley envisions a Toshiba-built 'box bundling "a digital video recorder with a hard-drive, high-definition HD-DVD drive and Xbox gaming capabilities." Alternatively, Microsoft could forgo the licensing and bundle that HD DVD drive themselves "putting it on par with Sony's PlayStation 3 that has a built-in Blu-ray drive."

The rumors regarding an integrated HD DVD drive have been swirling about for some time (Toshiba says "no comment"), so Dudley could be basing his speculation on the old "where there's smoke, there's fire" adage. Guess we'll know soon enough.[/QUOTE]

If MS can make the HDVD add on cheaper than 2 new games than there’s no reason not to put HDVD into it, it will unlock the full potential of the 360(well that and unlocking the USB pipes I don’t care if I have to format the USB HD its format get it done) ,mainly though if the add on units are less than 100$ and the new HDVD units are the same price as the current units or lower there’s no reason not to with it being the price of 2 games to upgrade to it you’ll have nearly half of the 360 owners over night and hell it forces me to go out and get one because I have been putting off buying the damn thing because of the accumulated issues the 360 has.

Best thing about it if they go DVD gaming then they can spend more time to try and not cock up their next system....


Ah modern gaming its like modern film only the watering down of fiction and characters is replaced with shallow and watered down mechanics, gimmicks and shiny-er "people".
