From Microsoft's Gamerscore Blog: "Rumors of a built-in HD DVD sku are greatly exaggerated. We’re proudly launching the HD DVD Player as an accessory this holiday. Turns out you want a say in how you spend your entertainment dollars. So who are we to burden every customer with the cost of expensive movie technology?"-- Gaming Bits - Gamescoreblog Kills The Internal HD-DVD Rumor Again
This is the second time around for this rumor, and I'm betting not the last. I'm still guessing Microsoft will ride out this holiday season and see how their chips are stacked compared to Sony's. Expect a second revision 360 late in 2007 or early 2008 which is smaller, cooler, has HD-DVD, has HDMI and will cost about $500.
