In light of increased discussion around HD DVD, Microsoft made the
following statement about Xbox 360 and the Xbox 360 HD DVD player.

“We do not believe the recent reports about HD DVD will have any material
impact on the Xbox 360 platform or our position in the marketplace. As
we’ve long stated, we believe it is games that sell consoles and Xbox 360
continues to have the largest next-gen games library with the most
exclusives and best selling games in the industry. We will wait until we
hear from Toshiba before announcing any specific plans around the Xbox 360
HD DVD player. HD DVD is one of the several ways we offer a high definition
experience to consumers and we will continue to give consumers the choice
to enjoy digital distribution of high definition movies and TV shows
directly to their living room along with playback of the DVD movies they
already own.”
