The Xbox 360 Video Marketplace Unveiled!

Not ready to pick sides in the upcoming HD format war? Maybe you don't have to just yet. On November 22nd, Microsoft is launching the video marketplace for Xbox Live. This new service will allow Xbox 360 owners with access to a high speed internet connection to download a variety of HD and standard definition video content to their consoles and view it on their television. That means all Xbox 360 owners with an HDTV will have access to HD movies, regardless of whether they own an HD-DVD or Blu-Ray player.

Those of us who have windows media center can actually buy HD movies from the service, store them on a usb hdd, then just hook it up to the 360, and stream the HD movies on it! And then theres the video marketplace...

Xbox 360 ($400) + Video Marketplace and/or media center (no add-on to buy for playing HD movies) + Wi-Fi ($100) = $500

Ps3 core = $500

I was going to say the same thing.
I can't wait to see how EnforcerOfTheTruth will try to try to critizise this one.

Speedwise, you wouldn't want to stream it wirelessly anyway, if you can use a cable. If you can stick the XBOX360 within cable distance of your router, you don't need the wireless anyway. gCM
