    XBOX 360 question.

    I have a 360, have had it for years but only ever used it for games. It has a 60GB HHD attached to it.
    Can I use it as a dvd player and can I watch high definition dvds on it?

    I have honestly never considered it, and I know HD DVDs are obsolite now.
    Tthanks for the help guys.

    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 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,
