"Mission 360" Brings DivX and XviD Decode to the Xbox 360?
& DivX Coming to Xbox 360? | Everyone is a-buzz over an article
published at 360-HQ.com that is saying
Microsoft has a new project called “Mission
360” which aims to support some of the currently unsupported video formats
such as DivX and XviD.
Here’s to hoping this one comes true! Transcode
360 is a great application/hack to get these formats to play on the Xbox
360, but native support is of course what everyone is looking for.
Before the Xbox 360 launched, I suggested that Microsoft
should take advantage of Xbox Live! In order to have third parties sell
their decoders online. Of course, giving it away in a firmware update as 360-HQ.com reports would be much better. If “Mission 360”
doesn't come true, Microsoft needs to reconsider putting the infrastructure in
place to have users purchase and download third party decoders from Xbox Live!
