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.

Alien: Isolation's pre-order bonuses are annoyingly good

The pre-order bonuses for Alien: Isolation have been announced, and they're really, really cool... but should we take it at some kind of sign?
