Comment H.264 Codec (Score 3, Interesting) 255

My understanding is that the Xbox 360 uses Windows Media Audio 10 Professional for all system and game audio.

If the main issue is the H.264 video codec, why can't they just switch to Microsoft WMV/VC-1 or one of the many open source ones available? Sounds like a simple software system update to me if its just the video apps doing it. If H.264 is used on game discs then MS needs to payup.
