It is now confirmed that HDMI will now be shipped on all XBOX Premium units that were made after July 4, 2007. A sticker on the front of the box will notify consumers if the Xbox 360 in question is HDMI compatable.
Remember that while component cable will support up to 1080i, only HDMI will support 1080p. Currently, no good game is actually running 1080p. Not even the upcoming HALO 3 will support 1080p. The only people who can take advantage of this will be the people who bought the HD-DVD player add on, as HD-DVD’s are one of the few sources projecting in 1080p.
Private note to H. Lime – Um, you realize that the PS3 came standard with this, right?
