ok, now we all kno we cant play games bought in US on indian consoles and cant likewise mov dvds. but now tht MS is selling HD dvd plyr for xbox in US for $199, u think pluggin it with our consoles will give us the freedom to play region 1 and 5 both on same console.
The HD-DVD add-on for X360 is a pretty stupid concept IMO. why would anyone want to buy an add-on just to watch a hd-dvd movie using X360, while they can get a better one for almost the same cost on a ps3 !
If MS releases games in hd-dvd format then add-on makes sense....else its a total waste !
CJ- My moms told me not to talk to strangers. Toreno- AND LOOK WHAT HAPPENED TO THE BITCH!
They won't release games on HD-DVD for a while. If they did, that would make obvious that M$ rushed out 360 without thinking ahead. Also it would make an year-old console outdated and force gamers to buy the add-on. That would be very embarrassing, foot-in-the-mouth situation for M$. They only released it to match feature by feature with PS3.

Having a PS3 these days is like wearing a big fat "I told ya so" T-shirt
wont happen soon,they will recieve amazing backlash from the media and gamers,this is where sony and co need to come to the party and wipe out hddvd quickly because if they do then MS has no choice other than add a bluray player to the box

I do believe that M$ will need to start allowing developers the freedom to utilise the HD-DVD format for games. Just take a look at Blue Dragon which spans 3 DVDs. I am suddenly taken back to the days of Final Fantasy VII 's 3 disc jewel case on the PS 1. (Incidentally, FF is also a product of Sakaguchi, the creator of Blue Dragon).
It seems pretty ridiculous that M$ would force developers to span games across 3 discs when a ready alternative is available. At least allow developers to offer both options i.e. 3 DVDs or 1 HD-DVD. This would make the move to HD-DVD a lot less painful for the serious gamers.
more the solutions more dumb it sounds to me... there would be some transition period for which they would be doing this, till everybody upgrades to HD player. Nonetheless its dumb on MS' part which would look like lack of foresight. Apart from this with such announcement, all i can say is the 360 sales will drop and many would be auctioned off on ebay.

MS would be in a lot of trouble if they started releasing games only on HDDVD...even if they do release a new xbox 360 version with hd-dvd drive....that would mean theyre forcing existing xbox 360 owners to pay $100 for an add-on
