Xbox 360 Could Output 1080p?
A Card Up Microsoft's Sleeve? (HD Beat) | "ATI did clarify that although Microsoft isn't
targeting 1080p (1920 x 1080) as a resolution for games, their GPU would be
able to handle the resolution with 4X AA enabled at no performance penalty."
Hmmm. So assuming
that a Digital
Output Dongle is coming, and assuming that you will be
able to stream HD-DVD Managed Copies to an Xbox 360, the Xbox 360 still
would still add up to Why
Microsoft is Still My Choice to Win Your Living Room. Even better if we will be able to stream
Managed Copies to the Xbox 360 with it outputting at 1080p, the Xbox would most
likely be one of the first sources for a “player”
that would output HD-DVD in progressive (1080p) and not interlaced (1080i)! This is very interesting, but it still looks
like another year or so before we find out since that’s likely the first time
we would see a Digital
Output Dongle for streaming HDTV recorded via a CableCARD!
Or, another possibility is that Microsoft could release an add-on
external HD-DVD drive for the Xbox 360. This gives the ability to
use the 360 for HD-DVD's, and no need for a re-release of the console
to add the functions.
