no you need a HD DVD add on drive to play HD DVDs

Your 360 can play normal DVDs and is an upscaler (will show DVDs in a better deinition)

You can yes, you need to buy a HD dvd player for it though

You will be able to watch HD DVD's only (or standard dvd'd upscaled but not in HD) you wont be able to play blu-rays) dont forget that HD DVD's are going to be obsolete soon as sony won the format war that is why the HD DVD players and discs are so cheap now,

It does, using the internal DVD player its slightly grainy, using the HD player, its slightly better.
