X-Box HD-DVD To Be Announced

Xbox360Billy G (as I call him) will take to the stage at CES in Vegas next week and drop news of an HD-DVD packing Xbox 360 according to the rumours in The Seattle Times.

Microsoft has previously crushed such talk, but their hi-def allies Toshiba last year dropped big hints that the HD hub would be coming in 2008.

That rumour was swiftly quashed, but with Tosh and Microsoft both set on destroying Sony’s Blu-Ray plans, who would bet against a joint announcement during Bill’s annual chinwag with the press?
