Microsoft Xbox 360 HD DVD Drive

HDDVD.jpgI love the DVD format, I couldn’t wait to have all my favourite films in a digital format. No more worrying about loss of quality, which always happened after your first play of your VHS movie. I have a very good DVD collection and now having a HDTV for my Xbox 360, now looking forward to HD DVD for even better audio and video quality. Now Microsoft have released some details of the format for use with the console (just for movies):

The Xbox 360 HD DVD Player connects with Xbox 360 to deliver even more high-definition content through blockbuster HD DVD releases from major Hollywood and international movie studios. The HD DVD Player delivers superior high-definition-quality video and stunning digital surround sound with Xbox 360. It includes the Xbox 360 Universal Media Remote (ERP TBA).
