PCW (http://www.pcw.co.uk/) reports that Microsoft plans to launch an updated HD DVD drive for the Xbox 360 in 2008. The announcement was made in London by Mark Bennett, Microsoft's European business development director for HD DVD.

"The interactive features actually work on HD DVD whereas Blu-ray titles are six to nine months away from getting features that actually work," Bennett said, referring to Blu-ray's current inability to do picture in picture videos.

k, I could just be dumb, but that doesn't say much to me.

What features will be new/improved with the new HD DVD player?

Also, it's probably a given that once the new player is released the old/outdated player will be drastically reduced in price to eliminate the obsolete inventory. Will the new features be enough to offset the discount when it comes to deciding which model to purchase? (I don't have one, but am planning to get one within the next year or so when the wife and I upgrade to an HD TV)

I have 2 of these suckers already and have yet to sell the second one. I don't need an "updated" version.

As usual, thanks for the heads up info, Weapon!
