Xbox 360 Premium to get HDMI?

Somehow, someway, somewhere

SANS - Survey on application security programs

HDMI connectivity could soon be extended beyond Microsoft’s Xbox 360 Elite to other versions of the gaming platform. Online reports claim that a Microsoft representative has confirmed that HMDI will soon feature in at least one additional version of the console, potentially the Premium edition.

The Microsoft mouthpiece reportedly confirmed that retailers are gradually introducing HDMI-enabled Xbox 360s to meet demand. Several additional reports have also said that a Microsoft representative has confirmed that HDMI will feature on the Premium edition console, but not on the Core model.

However, the company has not confirmed when or indeed where the first Premium models with HDMI will appear. Some US gamers already claim to have bought Premium models with HDMI connections from stores, such as Target, though.

The company hasn’t officially said whether the new HDMI Premium consoles will feature a different CPU, such as a 45nm chip, and instead chose to say that it constantly updates the console's 1,700 or so internal components.

The Xbox 360 Elite, which first appeared on US shelves on 29 April, already features an HDMI port, as does the special edition Halo 3 version of the console.
