In news that was kind of expected, Microsoft announced tonight that the
Xbox 360 will be getting an external HD DVD drive later this
year. From the looks of the press release
it looks like it will only be used to view movies and not play games
from but I guess we'll find out more later. It looks like the
line in the sand in the HD movie war has been drawn, I was kind of
hoping that we wouldn't have ANOTHER format war but such is life.
