HD DVD Small Talk - Speculations and Rumors

By now, most would have heard or read stories of Samsung releasing a hybrid/universal high-definition player and speculations of Microsoft releasing an internal HD DVD player for the Xbox 360 - all of which are currently disputed as rumors or false.

What I was thinking when it was spread all over the Internet that Xbox 360 will have an internal HD DVD player, was whether Microsoft's Xbox360 HD DVD player will be PC-compatible?

Microsoft's other Xbox 360 accessories (Xbox 360 Wireless Controller, Xbox 360 Wireless Headset and Xbox 360 Wireless Racing Wheel) all uses USB 2.0 connection and are easily PC-compatible with the right software drivers. With this and Microsoft's promise of native HD DVD support on its Windows platform in mind , it draws me to speculate if indeed the Xbox360 HD DVD add-on can also become a full-fledge HD DVD player for the PC? I do hope it can be realised.

Speculations and rumors aside, Microsoft's Xbox 360 HD DVD player will still be arriving in stores this holiday season...
