    Will Microsoft Announce a HD DVD Xbox 360 at CES?

    Richard Doherty, an analyst from research firm Envisioneering Group,
    predicts that tomorrow Bill Gates' main message at his CES keynote
    will focus Windows Vista, the next-generation Windows, but Doherty also
    thinks Gates will talk about HD DVD as part of the Xbox 360.

    Microsoft has denied in several opportunities that it is planning a HD
    DVD upgrade for the Xbox 360, but last year Bill Gates said that the
    Xbox 360 video may incorporate in the future the next-generation DVD
    format developed by Toshiba.

    "The initial shipments of Xbox 360 will be based on today's DVD
    format," Gates said at a joint news conference with Toshiba. "We
    are looking at whether future versions of Xbox 360 will incorporate an
    additional capability of an HD DVD player or something else."

    Bill Gates' CES keynote is only 24 hours away so tomorrow we'll
    know if the analyst was right or if it was pure speculation based on
    the recent HD DVD, Blu-ray Disc war hype.

    Looks like an external add on, rather under whelming.

    I HATE that the industry is repeating the VHS vs. Beta fiasco.
