Lite On Scheduled to Deliver HD DVD Players for Xbox 360
Posted by XanTium | August 28 17:33 EST

 
From burnworld.net:


Lite-On IT Corp. is reported to begin shipping Microsoft stand-alone high-density digital versatile disc (HD DVD) players for Xbox360 game consoles in the first quarter of 2007, Lite-On's another big windfall after landing orders to supply DVD-ROM players for Xbox360s.

The report came shortly after Lite-On openly supported HD DVD camp spearheaded by Toshiba. Microsoft has until now contracted Toshiba to make the game machine's stand-alone HD DVD players. But industry insiders pointed out that Toshiba has intensively solicited support from Lite-On for its HD DVD format in hopes of combing its specialization in slim optical-disc players with Lite-On's profession in half-height DVD players to speed up prevalence of HD DVD format.

My Lite-On DVD burner lasted about 4 months... just unlucky I guess. (I do however have a Liteon CD Burner/DVD reader that is who knows how old and works fine)

Lite-On is a great brand. They have made some of the most reliable and bargain priced drives in the last few years. This is great news for Xbox.

Hell yeah.

I am glad more are getting in the HD DVD camp. Blu Ray looks like shit and BD50 discs are a fucking fairytale.

Whoo!
