yeah, I dont know all the details, but that is what i heard to. No HD-DVD until later.

I also heard that the HD-DVD wasn't to be used for games, just movies. But, i am not 100% sure on that...

Microsoft is still exploring the possibility of HD-DVD in the future, and is working on determining if there's a way to do it such that existing Xbox 360 users will be able to upgrade their drives themselves.

Also, as has been said, it's going to be for movies, not for games, I believe. That said, I wouldn't be surprised if games are released on both formats, ala CD/DVD releases for PC games now-a-days. You could buy that big RPG on either one HD-DVD or 3 DVDs. Production costs for the two formats are going to be roughly the same, so it wouldn't be a big deal for a publisher to choose to go that route.

Yeah the move would only benefit movies. Making it work for games is too late for this point, unfortunately.

I thought that this would somehow be available through a firmware upgrade, but now that i think about it, I don't see how that could be done.
