Xbox 360 HD DVD Player Review

With the PS3 launch just around the corner, Microsoft is gearing up to compete with Sony's Blu-ray by having released the HD DVD add-on for the Xbox 360. Both Blu-ray and HD DVD have a decent library of titles now available, but it still remains to be seen which format is going to control the majority of high-definition consumers. Just weeks ago, Microsoft's fall update enabled 1080p HD resolution support for the Xbox 360, helping to ensure that the HD DVD drive would be capable of displaying the same quality output as the PS3's Blue-ray drive. The glaring difference between the two is that while the PS3 comes equipped with the HDMI output option, the Xbox 360 HD DVD player allows only for either component or VGA output via the Xbox 360 itself. This may bring up some compatibility concerns with users, but that hasn't stopped us from picking up the HD DVD to see if high-definition is all it's cracked up to be. (Xbox 360) -
