I'm going to get the HD DVD player soon.
The 360 interfaces with your home computer via third party software (available from SourceForge.net) to play all your mp3s and view pictures and movies on the xbox.
Not to mention, the games incredible. Project Gotham racing has only one BMW and it is a right hand drive, M5.
No need for 3rd party software if you have MCE or Vista - they pick the 360 up as an extender.
