360 HD DVD review

http://www.eurogamer.net/article.php?article_id=70652

A lot of this stuff doesn't mean much to me, but it's a glowing review, and unless i'm a twit the summary seems to be - if you have a HD tv, this is a great box for watching HD movies.

Still one thing nags. You won't be able to use this to watch satellite tv in HD will you? I mean sky are doing their own HD box, would you still need that to watch sky in HD?

Yeah, you still need the sky box because that has all the HDTV decoding stuff in it.

Just the same as you need a sky digital box and a DVD player to watch DVDs and digital TV now.

I have HDTV digital cable and the HD-DVD addon for the 360. Funko answered your question though.

Still, the HD-DVD player is really gorgeous. Only movie I've seen so far is the packaged King Kong, which as a movie sucks...but man is it pretty. In an upcoming 360 update, the sound will improve from 640Kbps Dolby Digital 5.1 to 1500 Kbps DTS also.

It's supposed to be pretty easy to hook it up through your computer without needing an Xbox 360, too.
