Video Marketplace now a go on the Xbox 360 (Update)

The future is now my underlings, because Microsoft has just unleashed the first Trojans from their gigantic white horse. That's right, their Video Marketplace is now live and ready for you to use and abuse. But besides the movies and TV shows you can download, you care about price, right? Here's the list:

High-definition TV shows will be 240 Microsoft® Points per episode, and standard-definition TV shows will be 160 Microsoft Points per episode. New release movies in high definition will be 480 Microsoft Points, and standard-definition new release movies will be 320 Microsoft Points each. Classic feature films in high definition will be 360 Microsoft Points, and standard definition will be 240 Microsoft Points. After purchasing a high-definition TV show or movie, you can download the standard-definition version at no additional charge.

More about the shows and movies after the jump. Buyer beware on the high def downloads: Crecente is trying to get Poseidon (for whatever reason, that movie was such crap) and it seems as though things are slow going.

[Update: Wow it does take forever to download an HD movie. I'm trying to download V for Vendetta right now and it's literally been about 10 minutes and it's still stuck at 0% complete. wtf?] 

[WTF Update: 7 hours later, 9% done. Thanks Msoft. Way to come ready to play. I hope my download is done before my 14-day timelimit is up.] 

Want to start downloading? Look at your options:

Examples of the download-to-own TV shows and download-to-rent movies available on the network on November 22 include the following:

  • CSI, CSI: Miami, CSI: New York, NCIS, and Star Trek from CBS.
  • Chappelle’s Show, Drawn Together, and Emmy and Peabody award-winning South Park from COMEDY CENTRAL.
  • Pimp My Ride and Punk’d from MTV.
  • Avatar: The Last Airbender and SpongeBob SquarePants from Nickelodeon.
  • Skyland and Invader Zim from Nicktoons Network.
  • Chinatown, Star Trek VII: Generations, Patriot Games, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, The Sum of All Fears, The Untouchables, and We Were Soldiers from Paramount Pictures. 
  • Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Frisky Dingo, Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law, Sealab 2021, and The Venture Bros. from Turner Broadcasting.
  • Some of the most intense fights from Ultimate Fighting Championship.
  • Breaking Bonaduce and Hogan Knows Best from VH1.
  • Perfect Storm, Poseidon, The Shining, Three Kings, and V for Vendetta, as well as The Nine and Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip along with the CW show Veronica Mars from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment.

Holy shit, App Store. The copyright infringement is real. I didn't buy it, because I'm scared it'll make my iPhone explode and because the comments say the game's a generic zombie title with fake and misleading screenshots.

Playing Halo 5: Guardians, got REALLY invested in this one match. It was intense from beginning to end and I was using A LOT of Power Weapons because it was so fun. We were literally seconds away from victory when the internet cut off. So disappointed. :(

Fuck it. Fuck Blighttown. Fuck it's poison blow dart campers. Fuck the mosquito freaks. Fuck the fire-breathing bitches. Fuck the lack of visibility. Fuck it's pitfalls. Fuck the fact that I'm going back after 5 minutes of self-loathing.

You know what the weirdest part about having selective hemophobia is? Getting freaked out by an anime like Elfen Lied but being 100% fine with shit like this.
