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

1:31 PM on 11.22.2006 // Robert Summa

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.

Was anybody else here extremely disappointed by the ending of Assassin's Creed 2?

Just tried Fallout 4 on my PC Via my Cousins steam account and nope, it does not run for me very well. Buying the PS4 version it is!

Am I the only one who has to pull up their sleeves to play competantly at videogames? When my hoodie's sleeves are down I play like a piece of shit but when i pull them up, I have more flexibility.

PSA: Just picked up Falco amiibo at Best Buy. They had about 20 Tom Nook, 10 singles of Splatoon Boy/Girl, the Splatoon triple pack, about 30 Marths with a big sign saying "Look Who's Back!," Dark Pit, and probably about 15 others. Not too shabby.

I long for the day that people get over their weird circle jerk hatred for FFXIII related things and just ignore things they don't care about.

Being a video game-focused website, it's not often I get to gush about Godzilla. So have a link to one of my favorite tracks in the entire series:

Fallout 4 really does bring back memories. Specifically, memories of finding unlikely loot on a animal's corpse. I'm just grateful that Bloatfly didn't know how to use that 15 pound flamethrower it was apparently carrying in its bum bag.

I no longer require seasoning for my Thanksgiving dinner because between the Lightning post here and Undertale beating Fallout 3 in the "best game" vote on GameFAQs, I have all the salt I need. (Image) [img][/img]

No more heroes. Wii or PS3 version?

Thanks for that Mother 4 article yesterday I've been listening to nothing but GBA-era soundtracks, truly my golden years of gaming.

If you stop to think about it, Thanksgiving is basically #Darksiders2: The Holiday.

Your daily reminder that my band can beat up your band.

Hoping more character customization options come of the next Smash-centric Nintendo Direct. Playing as Wrong-Hair, Wrong-Face Robin feels weird. Female Robin Amiibo, too. And let 3DS users download the whole OST. My wishes are reasonable, I think.
