No Xbox 360 HD-DVD for Asia

Bad news for any gamers in Asia looking forward to Microsoft's cheap (by comparison) HD-DVD add-on for the Xbox 360, you might be in for a disappointment. According to Digitimes, Microsoft Taiwan has no plans to launch the long-awaited peripheral in Asia in the immediate future, or quite possibly at all, saying that the area has too small an HD-DVD user base to justify releasing the drive at this time.
