Xbox offering world’s least expensive HD-DVD player

Microsoft is beefing up the Xbox 360 to match Sony’s forthcoming PlayStation 3 point by point, and the $170 price announced today for its accessory HD-DVD player in Japan is unbeatable, according to Paul Thurrott at WindowsIT Pro.

Xboxers today announced that they’re releasing the high-def DVD player in Japan in November, but there were no U.S. pricing or release details. I asked a spokeswoman for more info, and she would only say “we have more exciting announcements coming soon.”

The price of a 360 plus an external HD-DVD player is competitive with a PS3 with a Blu-ray drive, but the Sony console will have a tidier setup since its next-generation drive is internal.
