    yeah, just read today that toshiba "is" working on a internal hd dvd drive. if u look @ an xbox 360 mb is has hdmi inputs for such a device. so they claim. this is good news for i for one would not be buying an external drive.

    Another thing I've read is that they would release an external BluRay drive if BluRay "wins".

    Lol, M$ declared that there isin't any planning to set the HD-DVD in the Xbox360. So for now on, it's only false rumours (From xbox-scene) also, It would somewhat broke M$ strategy to set a very affordable game system. It's their only strong argument against Sony anyway...

    I'm confused here. Are 360 games in HD? If not- why do you need the extra drive? Just so your HD-DVD drive matches your X-box? If you NEED that drive to play games, that I understand, but if not, why would anyone buy that one when they can just buy a real player? Not that I'm in the market for either (not yet anyone) but I am curious as to what the point is?

    point is games will be hd in the 360 genre and 2nd is that this hd drive is only $170 as of now. stand alone's are $500+. if u currently already have a 360 why buy a stand alone? new patch for 360 was also released to provide 1080p. u do the math...
