Xbox 360 HD DVD player arrives in the UK

HD DVDMicrosoftÂ’s Xbox 360 HD DVD Player is now available in stores across the UK. As a special bait, er, treat the new add-on will come with an early-bird bundle. For a limited time only, the Xbox 360 HD DVD Player comes with Peter Jackson‘s “King Kong” (the film not the game) on HD DVD and the Xbox 360 Universal Media Remote.

The Xbox 360 HD DVD Player offers up to six times higher resolution than DVD, and all Xbox 360 consoles have the ability to output native resolution 1080p games and movies. With the add-on, the Xbox 360 game console also doubles as a home theatre unit.

“The Xbox 360 HD DVD Player is the best high-definition movie experience and value on the market,” according to Richard Teversham, EMEA Director of Marketing and Platform, Xbox. “The reviews, the word of mouth and the consumer response have all been crystal clear – HD DVD is the format of choice. We’re not forcing movie technology on game players but are instead letting them choose how to personalise their experiences. If they want HD DVD, there’s no better value out there.”

And by “no better value out there” he means about £129.99 (US$ 257.00).
