Microsoft will ship the Xbox 360’s eagerly anticipated external HD DVD drive to Japanese consumers on 17 November. The HD DVD will retail for around US$ 168 and come bundled with a remote control unit. It would shortly post an Xbox 360 firmware update that will allow the console to output video content at the 1080p HD resolution. What it didn’t reveal was how it plans to equip the console with an HDMI port to allow pre-recorded HD DVDs that require HDCP anti-piracy support to be displayed at full resolution.
