    Good news for 360 owners. I do wonder how #3 will be abused by smart young kids.

    Old quotes come to mind...
    "We'll give them HDMI when they need it"
    "We don't need 1080p"
    "We don't need motion control"

    They provided 1080p upscaling via the first fall update.
    They provided HDMI via the redesigning of the console.
    And now motion control will come. At least they're consistent.

    Overall, there's a lot of great stuff in the update. Hopefully the majority of it turns out to be true. Looks like there's a lot of memory management updates for a few things on the Blade . Now my games won't come to a halt when I try to read a message (I'm looking at you COD4 and GTA IV)!

    You would need a TV that's capable of 1080p for the 360 to upscale it to 1080p.....but the 360 upscales everything to what ever res you have available, that's the good thing about having a dedicated scaler chip, i run everything at 1080p and it looks fantastic.

    Okay so if I go home tonight and pop in a DVD it will upscale it to 1080i automatically?

    If you have a only HD component 360 you will get DVDs at 480p.

    If your have a VGA cable you can go to 720p/1080i/1080p(You TV must be 1080p capable to use 1080p) with DVDs.

    If you have a HDMI 360 then you again can get 720p/1080i/1080p for DVDs.

    Just remember though that its not really on a par with real HD movies.

    I see, I run it through HDMI and I will check it out when I get home. Yeah there still is considerable difference with the HD movies, which by the way are going for 5 at Play.com!

    At least they listen to their fan base and give them what they want.

    That's a lot better than saying, "here, take it whether you want it or not".

    Even though i have a PS3 i have steered well away from the whole HD movies format, until i can get movies at reasonable prices the standard DVD up scaled will do me...

    I thought the Spring update got cancelled due to the Fall update being so late?

    I couldn't believe it when I saw this over on Kotaku earlier. If this is real it will be by far the best update so far and I'm actually quite excited about it. So many things on there that I've wanted since the 360 came out.
