    It's about time Microsoft put out a variant of the core that featured a HDMI out port.  I need this new 360 for my new Sharp 52" LCD HDTV with 3 HDMI inputs so I can free up a component input for the original black behemoth XBOX.  Now just think, I wouldn't need to use my original XBOX if Microsoft had supported backwards compatibility like they should have.
