The Xbox 360’s HD DVD was fleshed out today at X06. The unit plugs into the back of the Xbox 360, offering clarity greater than HDTV signals, and significantly greater (up to five times greater) resolution than regular DVDs. The unit is being released in mid-November for $199.99 USD, putting the price of an Xbox 360 and HD DVD combo pack retail at the same price as the PS3 (barring a price drop). The unit will come bundled with an Xbox 360 Universal Remote, and [i]Peter Jackson’s King Kong[/i] on HD DVD. The HD DVD drive still is not intended to be used for games.
