    It'd be nice if there was some kind of exchange program, but I doubt it will happen tbh.

    I know this rumor was smashed, but if it did happen, wouldn't this most likely be a software update rather than a hardware update? What extra hardware do you need to enable interactive features, surely you just need the software support?

    I'm thinking maybe this news was a misinterpretation of somebody overhearing that maybe the 360 will come with a built in HD-DVD player(for movies only) next year sometime, possibly, maybe!:D
