Xbox 360 Comes With HD DVD Bundled for 590 Euro


Microsoft will reportedly bundle an external HD DVD player with the Premium package of the game console in Europe next November, priced at 590 euro.

Citing retail sources, GamesIndustry.biz web-site reports that Microsoft is planning to price the standalone HD-DVD drive at 293 Euro, and to package it with two HD-DVD movies. The sources also suggested that Microsoft will bundle the Premium console and next-generation movie player together for under 590 Euro.

Microsoft is also expected to release the external add-on HD DVD drive for the Xbox 360 game console by Christmas for $200. The drive is manufactured by Hitachi-LG Data Storage (HLDS) and will allow owners of the console to play-back HD DVD high definition movies.

The Xbox 360 is also powered by a custom graphics processor from ATI, capable of offering powerful rendering in gaming as well as H.264 decoding for HD DVD reproduction.

Microsoft has added the add-on drive to the Xbox 360 in order to compete with Sony?s PlayStation 3 console, which offers play-back for the rival Blu-ray Disc format.
