Xbox video marketplace updated

28 03 2007

As Microsoft launched a new version of the Xbox 360 today with a larger hard drive (and somehow made the price of the PS3 seem a lot more reasonable), they also gave users more TV and movies to fill it up with. Added to the list of existing 360 content for US users are shows like Dog the Bounty hunter, Criss Angel Mindfreak and Gene Simmons Family Jewels, along with some National Geographic documentaries. Riveting stuff I’m sure you will agree. High-def TV cost $3 an ep, standard definition $2.

I understand it’s very easy for anyone in the world to open a US account, but when are Microsoft UK going to pull their finger out and start offering some sort of programming to UK 360 users? Hell, I would take some old school comedy right now, just to know that deals were being put in place. wait, no I wouldn’t. In fact, I don’t even own a 360, but I do need more High-def content for my LCD, and if it were available in the UK through the 360 I would certainly consider buying one.
