Default Re: Next gen HD players coming: HD-DVD and Blu-Ray

Is there any plans from M$ to just put the HD drive straight into the360? or is it just another money sucking scheme to make it separate?

If you haven't figured it out yet, the 360 first and foremost a video game console. Adding the hd-dvd addon directly to the 360 would simply raise the price and is unneeded for those who don't want a hd-dvd player. This makes sense given the best selling console (Wii) doesn't even play dvds.

There's already a dual-format machine by LG out. It isn't officially an HD DVD player since it eschews support for all of the HDi functionality, but if you just want to watch the movie, you can watch both Blu-ray and HD DVD titles in it.

Samsung was slated to have a dual-format machine out by the holiday season, but they pulled it.

Ah, gotcha. I could've sworn I'd seen one, but maybe someone just too the 360 drive out of its enclosure.

And it worked just fine for me on XP Pro. It was just the software (WinDVD and PowerDVD) that sucked along with my monitor's (Dell 3007) lack of an internal hardware scaler that would scale to 1920x1200 allowing for 1080p playback that was crappy.
