MSFT is working with Peter Jackson.

They had that contest at the NYC TV Festival "Xbox Originals" contest

IPTV. Xbox LIVE Marketplace.

They are setting up Xbox 360 as a *NEW* media distribution outlet. Sometime soon, they are going to announce "Xbox Live Originals" as a TV / MOVIE distribution outlet. A new IP-based "channel" (if you will).

Digital Distribution FTW.

Dont bother Wageslave. Based on the (dis)agrees, this website is beyond stupid.

If it isnt coming to PS3, it sucks.

Whose idea was it?
No need to ask, if it's a terrible idea like this, it must be MS.

People who think this is a good idea have no clue. You have tiny budgets (or they lose MEGABUCKS) which means sh!tty show which means no one watches/downloads which means show is canceled, not to mention a tiny XBL audience (compared to TVs) who apparently only want to play games otherwise they would have a PS3, they tell me.

A new Internet-based distribution channel for new creative works is a bad idea?

Really -- tell us more about your incredible insight.

Are you going to tell us that Digital Distribution is 10 years away?

Here's a newsflash, more than half the traffic on the internet is *already* Digital Distribution.

People are already going to their internet-connected devices for entertainment, how could this *NOT* be a great idea?

Still no fix for RROD.

Talk about customers coming first.

What the fcuk are you talking about?

The heat issues were resolved in mid-2007. Every person with a problem gets a free repair.

Take your drivel to the open zone mouth-breather.
