Well, it looks like we now have confirmation that Microsoft will release an add-on HD DVD player for the Xbox 360. In the past add-on peripherals such as this have had poor adoptability in the video game system space. To make the slope even more slippery for Microsoft, Sony will be releasing the PS3 with a built in high-def DVD player (Blu-ray format). As we reported in December , it’s thought that the add-on HD DVD player will be for movie playback only, and won’t read games. No word on price or when it will be available.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
