Employees deny 360 HD-DVD
Using the simple headline "No Internal HD DVD Plans," Xbox community manager Tony Hynes has (through Gamerscore) denied any truth to stories that Microsoft is planning a 360 with an internal HD-DVD drive. Taiwanese Website DigiTimes had been reporting that Microsoft is searching for partners and certification in Taiwan. That may still be the case, thankfully, since the hypothetical revision to the console would be out by mid-2007 at the earliest. It's doubtful that a community manager would know everything the company might be planning.
