Is this a rumor or does someone have a link to the info?

The they said "HDMI is useless.", now they plan to add it.

You can trust them as much as Sony.

In the future I'd suggest avoiding quotation marks and prefacing everything with "It is my understanding after filtering it through a lot of emotion and attachement that this may have said...."

It also stands to reason that such a Xbox 360 might be sporting a fancy new HDMI port and perhaps run just a wee bit cooler -- meaning HDCP and less fan noise, natural fits for home theater use. It still seems a bit unreasonable for Microsoft, which has been bragging about its 10 million strong installed base, to leave those early adopters out in the cold, but if that's the way it goes down we can't say we won't welcome the excuse to ditch the fan and disc drive hullabaloo of our current gen box.

I've noticed a few people mention how they aren't interested in a 360 with an HDMI connection b/c their set is only 720P or 1080i. And I was wondering: are the visual improvements through HDMI only noticeable with a 1080P tv? Is there any reason to use HDMI if my tv is 720P?
