Microsoft to support HD-DVD, but only for movies

Microsoft is to offer an add-on the the Xbox 360 to support HD-DVD movies, but games will still be produced on dual layer DVD (DVD-DL). The 8.5GB DVD-DL format stores enough information for games in 720p (progressive) which is the highest resolution that the Xbox currently supports for games and the graphics subsystem is optimed for that.

In future that may change as Microsoft say the system is designed to be future-proof but no plans at the moment.
