GS: What can you tell us about the HDMI-enabled Xbox 360 rumors that have been going around?
CS: We're always working on prototypes and new technologies and just playing with stuff in Redmond to see what's interesting. I think at the moment we have the widest available connections on the system. If you want to get great HD, I think we've got a good solution for that. In the future it's interesting to see where standards evolve to. I think it's one of the problems that the whole industry, us and entertainment, are facing at the moment is we're in this world where standards are evolving very quickly.
We have different high-definition standards for discs that we know are competing at the moment. We think HD-DVD is going to be the right way to go, but really it's all about choice in that system so that's why we're offering these sort of services with downloads--skip that whole format wars problem. With other standards, audio-video standards, they're evolving very quickly as well. We're obviously keeping an eye on that and saying "what are the future standards and how do we give consumers the right choice for that?"
At the moment, everything you might have seen is just looking at our experimentation back in Redmond, not really a product that we're thinking about announcing.
"This is right here on the GS website. So everyone who was getting all twitterpated over this can relax now."
"Here's the link:"
-The HDMI port for the 360 was rumored long before Project Zephyr was shown. This pic appear in the web around summer 06.
-We can clearly see the HDMI port in here.

This is just a Rumor. There has been no official annoucement about an updated version of the 360. We'll just have to wait for Microsoft CES keynote address to get the real scoop of Project Zephyr. Don't be mad about this. Every products gets updated every year, even gaming consoles. We should be happy that MS is fixing all the flaws the 360 is having in this next version(if it's real). One thing that MS did announce was IPTV function in the 360. This abilty could be added with an update just like Video Marketplace. ___________________________________________________________________
