Xbox 360 HD DVD Drive Price Announced and Will Arrive in Japan in November
According to Engadget, Japan will be the first to receive the HD DVD player add on for the Xbox 360. The HD DVD drive should emerge over seas sometime in November (17th or 22nd) of this year and sport a $170 price tag (this is Japan pricing but US pricing should be comparable). Stil no word on when we’ll see the add-on in the US, but we expect it some time shortly after its release in Japan. In more Xbox 360 news, Microsoft will provide a software update that will allow for 1080p resolution although we were under the assumption that the TV market didn’t currently have any sets that could actually display this resolution (I have a SXRD Sony TV that lists 1080p in it specs but according to numerous reviews it lacks this feature).
