    Anyone know how good the dvd player on the new xbox is going to be and will it be better than a samsung hd850?

    I'm wanting a new dvd player and wondering whether to wait till i get an Xbox 360.

    Well the Samsung has a HDMI output which the 360 does not so if you have a HDTV with a HDMI get a 850(or the new 950) but even if you arn't going to use the HDMI of the Samsung my money would be that a £80 dvd player will give better picture and sound than any games console

    apparently the xbox 360 will be progressive scan capable but will not be able to upscale the pictures to 720p or 1080i so i cant see it being better than the samsung hd850.
