Dean T. of the Mercury News just made an oops and leaked some Xbox 360 announcements Microsoft was planning on dropping next week at CES. Not only does he mention the improved Xbox 360s with 120GB hard drives and HDMI ports, he also talks about the use of the Xbox 360 as an IPTV set-top-box.

The leak says Microsoft's IPTV services will have instant channel change, multiple picture-in-picture, broadcast shows, video on demand, and DVR functionality—gotta use those 120GB for more than just trailers.

Sounds like Dean Takahashi's getting a Takahating from Microsoft tomorrow.

Kobeiscool...where in the HELL did you hear that component and HDMI are equal when it comes to gaming? That hasn't been proven at all! Quite the contrary, HDMI gives less HD lag, more colors, wider viewing angle, and a sharper image. Why don't you try looking at Gran Turismo HD concept at 720p at component and then use HDMI. Trust me, it makes a difference. What I am upset about is the millions of Xbox 360 owners pretty much getting pwned with these major upgrades. Whenever you upgrade a system, you make the changes noticable, but at the same time remember that you have millions of people that will stick with the older versions and not PISS THEM OFF. Take the playstation 2. The slimmer one looks better, takes less power, lost the capability to add a HDD, and has built in ethernet (an according to some, has a faster spinning drive, though I honestly didn't see the difference). It is a noticable difference, but the capabilities of both can be matched; the upgrade doesn't do things the lesser one cannot, so everyone is happy.
