It would be surprising if they bring out a new 360 ( the 720???) before 2 years is up, but I don't mind. I imagine an external drive solution will be available for the rest of us, and I don't really need HDMI since 1080p works fine over VGA. I would like to see the HD-DVD as an internal drive, and not the add-on.
Yes and no, for some reason the HD-DVD drive takes up alot of memory I feel. At least more then most people think, and alot of that memory is within the actual drive as well. You'l notice that you have like 200 free MB's on your HD DVD drive. Along with the HD DVD you get 2 more USB ports or one extra assuming you use the drive for let's say a Wireless Adaptor. I like having 2 drives because I have drive specfically for my games and the other drive for Movies, All Movies. I'm sure the people who are using the xbox HD dvd drive with their computers are quite happy that it was being sold like this as well, lol. And I think that Many people are too Cheap and Hesitant to drop out 600 dollars for a Console system. I mean look at the PS3, how many complaints did you get on the price for that System? While the xbox 360 is really in the same boat after you add on the 360 price with an HD-DVD, 400+200= 600. The ability to customize this system to this extent has Severely Assisted Microsoft.
