MadCatz kit brings HDMI to older Xbox 360s

MadCatz X360 HDMI Kit

MadCatz on Wednesday afternoon provided what it says is relief for owners of a generation of Xbox 360 game systems. The Xbox 360 HDMI Conversion Kit is designed to supply all of the consoles released before Microsoft's upgrade to the line between the summer and fall. Plugging into the standard output jack, the adapter provides the same 1080p output as systems with HDMI built-in and even supports HDMI 1.3 on supporting HDTVs. Surround sound still carries through in Dolby Digital and DTS, and can be routed through a secondary optical output for home theaters that use a receiver for audio instead of HDMI's built-in support.

The converter already comes pre-supplied with both the HDMI and optical output cables needed to attach the Xbox to a home theater and should already be shipping to stores for $90.
