Xbox 360 to get DivX support?

October 11th, 2006 | by Deejay Knight, Editor/Founder

Apparently, it's possible...

Even though there are many ways to watch videos with differing codecs on the Xbox 360 already, word around the campfire is that Microsoft is finally going to make it official!

From a Microsoft retailer training session (translated from Dutch): "After the event I had a short talk with the host and asked him whether there'd ever be support for DivX and Xvid playback. Much to my surprise, he started telling me that Microsoft is working hard to implement this and a firmware update is expected within 2 months allowing you to play DivX and Xvid directly on the 360."

Now's your chance to see for yourself. This past Friday, I played a full three hours of Superman Returns for the Xbox 360, and for the first time EVER- not only was I left wanting to play more of a Superman game, but it was a damn good one.
