Microsoft drops Xbox 360 HD DVD drive



Looks like it is end of the road for HD DVD even on the gaming side, as Microsoft has decided to drop the Xbox 360 HD DVD drive. For those who have picked up this peripheral, don’t worry too much about your warranty as Microsoft will continue to offer warranty support for it. I don’t think a warranty is really necessary in this case anyway since you will hardly use your HD DVD drive anymore with no more new movies being released for it in the foreseeable future. Well, unless you’d like to use it as a mere DVD player, of course – but then again, who doesn’t already have a dedicated DVD player (or two) in the home? Guess the high definition game now belongs to Sony.
