'Old 360' doing HDMI, now, today

Wednesday 27 June 2007
Kotaku has picked up on a story that's since been reproduced around the Internet that hypes a new cable which allows 'old' Xbox 360s todo HDMI. Interesting, no doubt, but for some reason we thought everyone knew you could do this already?

At GamesRadar we've been using a box available from here that's enabled us to plug our 360 into a Toshiba HDTV with an HDMI cable for a few months now. It's made by US company Gefen and is simply called a Component Video to HDMI adaptor. We've snapped a couple of pictures of it working. (You'll have to excuse the Gorgons nest of cables in the background that occupies the 'video capture desk'.)
