All Xbox 360s to receive HDMI out with cooler CPUs?

updated 01:40 pm EDT, Wed August 8, 2007

Xbox 360 Universal HDMI

Every Xbox 360 could have HDMI video output within a month, according to a new but credible rumor. Although current buyers can only choose the Xbox 360 Elite if they need or want the all-digital format, the update would add HDMI to the standard Xbox 360 and the Core model, giving every system full support for 1080p even on HDTVs that block the resolution through component video. The HDMI upgrade would arrive simultaneously with cooler processors to maximize the impact of the upgrade, according to the report.

An official launch of the revamped systems could occur as early as late August or early September, depending on stock levels. Microsoft will allegedly run down its existing supplies of consoles in stores and release the upgrades quietly, identifying the improved non-Elite systems with only a small label on the box. The upgrade should have no effect on recent price cuts and implies that the still unreleased Halo Edition console will ship with the new hardware by default.
