Xbox 360 HD-DVD Player: For Consoles and PCs
This week Microsoft officially released the highly anticipated external HD-DVD drive for the Xbox 360 console. You might be wondering why we are looking at an external console accessory on PC Perspective, but I can assure you the information that you'll find in here is going to be just as impressive to PC users as it is to Xbox 360 owners.
Since MS first announced their intentions to release an HD-DVD drive for the Xbox 360, and at a $200 price point, there has been a lot of expectation from the community for it. At that price level, it marks the cheapest high definition next-generation DVD option on the market; the Toshiba set top boxes are going to run you about $500 and the Blu-Ray players are going for $1000 or so. And good luck finding a PS3 to use as a Blu-Ray device...
Read the rest as it is loaded with pics of the device as well as what you see when you connect it to a PC. Something makes me think that this HD-DVD external device that can be used with a PC for $199 will sell like hot cakes!
