i'm in the uk and although we don't have hd yet it's coming next year. hd is obviously the future. heck i even have quite a few hd videos myself now even though i can't make use of then fully.
xbmc is a truly wonderful app and i've been using and supporting it since the days of xbmp.
i'm just really hoping we can see a port becuase of hd. it's the one area where xbmc is lacking due to the limitations of the hardware.
of course there are many obsticles to overcome first, not least the development side of it, it's going to be a lot harder to develop software for the 360 due to the platform requirements and that's assuming we see the machine itself get hacked any time soon.
