1080p support for Xbox 360

Microsoft has announced that its Xbox 360 will support 1080p via an update, which will allow users to play games and view movies at a higher resolution. The update is scheduled for the fall of this year and should not require an HDMI cable, according to gamer scan. Shane Kim of Microsoft said the company will upscale current 720p applications, while native 1080 products should work without problems. Microsoft may consider a hardware solution over a software update, if movie studios insist on HDMI input for copy protection. Kim noted, however, that most third-party and all Microsoft Game Studios products will continue to use 720p.
