Microsoft rolls out 360 HD DVD player update

Even though HD DVD died a slow and painful death, Microsoft is still showing current Xbox 360 HD DVD player owners ongoing love with the release of today's auto update. Once connected to Xbox Live with a HD DVD player firmly integrated into your 360, you'll be prompted to download a new update that's said to help with compatibility issues with some titles and will add additional support for network features. Even though this update won't resurrect Toshiba's commitment to HD DVD, it should make your HD movie experience a tad bit more enjoyable.

@ Russ Tundra

"are you a Brit? I think you are... no wonder why we excaped from there 300 years ago. I'd kill myself if I had to deal with British Dry Humor, bad teeth and eat Toads in the Hole all day."

If were going with stereotypes, then guessing your american. Lets face it, you are arrogant enough.

I'd kill myself if I had to deal with overly obvious idiot humour that caters for people with an I.Q. in single digits. Eating McDonalds all day only to sue Mcdonalds for making you so fat, you fell over and broke your Xbox360 while making comments like 'oh my god' and 'whatever'

And and you may like to run a spell checker and check your pronunciation before you type, as I am having to translate it back to english, you know, that language we gave you...

Back on topic, the little PS3 fanboy is an idiot, I own all 3 systems and the worse fanboys by far are the PS3 crowd, speaking from personal experience of course.

I know he's not representative of everyone who owns a PS3, but he's not doing the image any favours.

On topic. I was on the fence when the HD-DVD came out and I held off until there was a clear format winner, which is why I bought a PS3, for blu-ray.

Smkalot...Your just mad because, like all asians, you have a inferiority complex. HaHa smklot has a little weewee and tries to make up for it with a bluray palyer. Oh, I forgot to mention that the bluray player plays games. I'm not sure what games but i heard it does! Go figure! Douche!
