Xbox 360 Blue-ray Player
 
Looks like Microsoft may be releasing a Blue-ray player in May possibly. This would be nice since I just bought a 42 inch plasma HDTV. Can't wait. This will be great for movies. I hope it's not too expensive. Anybody know what the price will be?

I hooked up a HDMI cable for my Xbox360 and man, that makes a huge difference in quality compared to the composite (SD) cables. My older TV didn't have HDMI slots and had to use composite (SD). I've been using composite (SD) with my new TV as well for a week and realized that I can now use HDMI. I tell you, it's a major difference! Do it if you can. :bowdown:

Holy crap yeah it will make a diff. all you had before was 480i! Now you're on at least 720p.

Hey make sure you're on the highest res that your tv can handle. Go to the system tab on your 360 and go to console and then display. And start at 1080p and if it blacks out don't touch anything and then it will revert to the last setting.

Keep going down the list to get the highest res.


If the blu-ray player add on is around 150-200 and I have my new tv I'll buy it for sure...

I'm kinda hoping they do release an add on. I was gonna buy a Blu-Ray, and was going to get a PS3 to get it since it's the cheapest, plus having a PS3 wouldn't hurt either.

Wow. I had no idea that the PS3 was the cheapest Blu-ray player. That's definitely the way to go IMO. But theres no way I'm paying twice as much money to replace my entire DVD collection. I can be happy with DVDs.

Yeah. There's nothing wrong with getting a PS3 if you want the Blue-ray. I own a 360 but will probably buy the add-on. I want to take advantage of my new HDTV.

^ You can still get the Blue-ray and play your older DVDs as well. Maybe keep that in mind.

Thanks dude. I'll try that. When it comes to modern TV technology, I'm a little clueless. Very happy with the update though. Great picture quality. :cheers:
