Xbox 360 gets HDMI port

Microsoft confirms HD video tech for console

Microsoft has revealed Xbox 360 consoles featuring HDMI support. The news comes amid reports that new machines are now available in US stores coinciding with yesterday's price drops.

"Yes, we are offering an HDMI port for Xbox 360 simply as another choice in Xbox 360 owners' games and entertainment experience," a Microsoft rep told Shacknews in an statement. "Retailers are gradually introducing HDMI-enabled Xbox 360s into the channel to meet demand."

The company denied comment on the port addition to cheaper Core models not to mention the rumoured cooler running processors. "We have not announced any plans to add HDMI to the Xbox 360 Core System," the rep said. "We are constantly updating the console's more than 1700 internal components and therefore will not comment on details of specific components or manufacturing processes."

HDMI allows for higher audio and visual fidelity when connected to HD-enabled TVs, and was first made available on Xbox 360 Elite models.
