    My guess is you have to look at the source. They have only a fairly good reputation for 'getting it right'. This is the same source that states that MS will have an Xbox360 with internal HD drive by 1st quarter 2007. While I hope this is true, and it actually makes good business sense, MS sure is not confirming it. In fact, they are denying it.

    I got crossed up on this in an earlier post when I mistakenly attributed the news to an MS press release, for that, I apologize.

    Some of the sites that I've seen are listing the unit for $200.

    Regarding an internal HDDVD drive, the folk at MS have stated that they want to package this as an external so you have the option to buy what you want vs the PS3 which is forcing everyone to buy into BD.

    The price will be lower in Japan because MS is trying its hardest to get the foot in the door there. There will be some good deals for the Japanese consumers when it comes to the 360.

    It wouldnt be far fetched to think that the 360 hacking community is going to plan an internal HD DVD mod, replacing the existing drive.

    That makes sense.
