360 to get internal HD-DVD drive in 2007?

Internal HD-DVD for 360?

Sources in Taiwan's optical disc drive industry have told DigiTimes that Microsoft is, already, designing a 360 with an internal HD-DVD drive. The external drive will be available in Europe and North America by Christmas. Microsoft may be worried that a 360/HD combo will seem inferior if it can only play movies, whereas Sony's PS3 will have launch games that make use of HD storage. If Microsoft can sail through selecting partners and gaining certification however, we may see 360's with internal HD-DVD drives as soon as the first half of 2007.
