Microsoft confirms HDMI port addition to Xbox 360

Microsoft confirmed late Wednesday the existence of newly updated Xbox 360 units that include HDMI support. The news comes amid reports that new machines are now available in stores coinciding with today's price drops.

"Yes, we are offering an HDMI port for Xbox 360 simply as another choice in Xbox 360 owners' games and entertainment experience," a Microsoft rep told Shacknews in an statement. "Retailers are gradually introducing HDMI-enabled Xbox 360s into the channel to meet demand."

The company denied comment on the port addition to cheaper Core models not to mention the rumored cooler running processors. "We have not announced any plans to add HDMI to the Xbox 360 Core System," the rep said. "We are constantly updating the console's more than 1700 internal components and therefore will not comment on details of specific components or manufacturing processes."

HDMI allows for higher audio and visual fidelity when connected to HD-enabled TVs, and was first made available on Xbox 360 Elite models.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
