From this MS retail leak is seems 360 will get official VGA support from MS. You will have to buy the wire but atleast you know you wont have to pay like $70 with MS making there own. This is all I really wanted to be confirmed. :)

That would be excellent, considering few of us have an HDTV to enjoy the glitzy graphics on.

That's pretty cool. I remember doing that with my Dreamcast, even on that system it made the graphics a lot better. Wonder what the pricing on these accessories will be, for $20 to $30 it would be a steal considering one of the main complaints people have had about the Xbox 360's HD support is that you'd need an HDTV to use it. Too bad my monitor isn't widescreen and would only run at 60hz at 720p, though :(

Wow, this is wonderful, my cheapish EDTV can handle VGA video input at 480p, 576p, 720p and 1080i. That leaves the HDMI and Component cables open for two other consoles. This is perfect :).
