1080p support announced for XBOX 360 at Tokyo Game Show - dashboard update coming this year

2Old2Play has posted an article with some early coverage from the 2006 Tokyo Game Show. According to an announcement made early this morning, Microsoft's XBOX 360 game console will receive a dashboard update this year to enable 1080p support.

The forthcoming dashboard update will enable support for 1080p (1920x1080) resolution; however, the current lack of an HDMI cable for the XBOX 360 means this resolution will only be supported over component and VGA. Existing games and DVDs will be able to take advantage of this resolution through the upscaling feature of the XBOX 360, but no "native 1080p content" has been prepared for release as of yet.

With the advent of the HD DVD add-on drive and the rumors of a new XBOX 360 with an internal HD DVD drive, the update to include 1080p support may be part of the "surprise" Microsoft claimed was in store to counter Sony's PlayStation 3, scheduled to launch in Japan on November 11 (November 17 for North America).

Where have you been? People on this board have hated Sony long before the anouncement of the PS3, try back when the Emotion chip from when the PS2 was launched, people hated Sony because of the overhype they did, ya it was revolutionary but those pre-rendered scenes shown at E3 and whatnot are just not real.

yah exactly and emotion wasn't even revolutionary - revolutionary would imply that graphics in xbox, dreamcast and PC were left far behind.

Which they weren't.

And it didn't even get me very emotional either :/
