progressive out in game box?

Do the DVD capabilities in Microsoft's xbox or the Sony Playstation2 include progressive scan?

My brother is looking to buy a progressive scan DVD player, but he's also looking to replace his Playstation (1) with the newer model. I wondered if he could buy a game box that could also be used as a progressive scan DVD player?

Manufacturer websites don't seem to list very technical specs for the game boxes or their outputs.

Unfortunately, for DVD-Video playback, neither XBox nor Playstation 2 support progressive scan output.

Is progressive scan output something that is likely to be in the "next version" of anyone's game box? Seems like a no-brainer to me.

NO...but Xbox does output a High Definition picture when gaming with the HD adapter.
