Team XBOX has posted images from the new interface that will appear when you purchase the HD-DVD addon.

All of this information is great but I'd really like to know the price. I'd also like to know what happened to all the hd-dvd movies... Best Buy no longer seems to carry them and the price seems to be way too much just to see a slightly clearer image.

I will hold out judgement until I hear a price as well.

Personally, I don't give a shit. I use my videogame systems to play games. The only accessory I'm looking forward to is the Live Vision Camera.

If only to map a photo of my ass over a character in Rainbox Six: Vegas' face.

Oh the possibilities.

What about Knetter's ass ?

Also don't forget about the wireless headset. The wires on the wired headsets are cheapo.

The 360 headsets are just cheapo all around. I think they are far worse than the regular XBOX headsets

Yep I agree! If your headset dies just call 1-800-4-myxbox and they will replace it free. That's what I did. I will be getting the wireless headset.

Good info. Thanks for the heads up. My bigger concern right now is my ISP! I have been having network issues for the last couple weeks. It has gotten so bad, that I am not even able to play at this point. I can get like 1/3 of the way through a game and then I loose my connection. It is really pissing me off.

I'm remotely interested because I think if there is an upcoming format war, HD-DVD will win out over Blu-Ray. The main reason is they can make HD-DVDs that will play in a traditional DVD player (though obviously without the increased resolution); so the adaptation into the mainstream consumer's household is easily possible as opposed to the hurdles Blu-Ray face.

Blu-Ray needs a second laser to play traditional DVDs, and in head-to-head comparisons between the same movies HD-DVD actually edges Blu-Ray in quality (of course, they still don't have the dual-layered Blu-Ray discs out yet). I just don't see Blu-Ray reaching the masses, HD-DVD on the other hand could easily slip in undetected.
