Caught wind of this lil tidbit in online chat with someone who CLAIMED to be an M$ game studio employee: Halo3--after the beta release--will be released for commercial sale SOLELY on HD-DVD disks. This meaning, of course, that everyone who bought an X360 will be FORCED to buy the HD-DVD attachment to play the system exclusive killer app. Microsoft, the kings of REAR ENDING sales, (i.e. making you buy a new version of Office/Win every two three years, or paying for your Live connection on top of paying for your ISP...) will--in effect--be marking up the total cost of ownership of an X360 premium OR core to $599.00 in order to play Halo3!! (Core+HDD((needed to run HD-DVD drive))+HD-DVD also = $599) My source said that there has been MUCH internal debate about allowing x360 owners w/o HD-DVD drive to be able to pay for and download Halo3 over Live but because the game comes in at over a whopping 15 GIGS they decided AGAINST because this would consume 75% of the HDD for ONE game.
