Cool Xbox 360's HD DVD drive works properly with your PC!!

It is true! It is true! Anyone with a Windows XP PC with a decent processor and video card can use the Xbox 360's HD DVD drive to watch HD DVDs!

And a powerful enough PC to take advantage of it.

Great news though and a cheap HD-DVD add-on for PC users. Some people have already isolated the ISO from current HD-DVD's, whether or not you'd be able to play these back given the AACS copyright is another thing though.
