The long-awaited HD DVD add-on to the Xbox 360 console will finally arrive in Australia on March 29.

The add-on is a drive that draws its processing power from the console, allowing you to watch high-definition movies.

It’s being billed as a cost-effective means to getting a high-definition player in your lounge room, with the ticket price being just $250.

While existing owners of a 360 will be able to get the HD experience for $250, Microsoft claims it’s still the cheapest way of getting a HD player, even if you don’t own the console.

The basic console without storage retails for $499, so you can purchase the console and add-on and have a functional HD player for around $750.

The console with storage sells for $650, so you could pick up the entire package for $900.

That’s significantly cheaper than any Blu-ray player currently on the market and less than the PS3, which also comes with the functionality of a Blu-ray player and will retail for $999.

That price becomes even more attractive with the news that the add-on is being bundled with the remote control and a copy of King Kong in high-def for no extra charge.
