Xbox Live

From Major Nelson and the Gamerscore Blog comes word of new partners releasing new content for the Live Marketplace.

From the Official Press release:

More Partners Coming to Xbox Live Marketplace

We also just announced new partners bringing more premium content to the Xbox 360 in the U.S. A&E Network, ADV Films, National Geographic and signed on, and Paramount Pictures and Warner Bros. Home Entertainment are going to offer new high-definition content.

Available titles will include “Braveheart,” “Team America: World Police,” and “South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut.”

Also, for the first time, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will be releasing its direct-to-video movies exclusively in high definition on Xbox LIVE simultaneous with their availability on DVD, starting with “Sublime” and later “Babylon 5: The Lost Tales.”

Some of the television shows and feature films that will be coming to Xbox LIVE include:

  • A&E Network. “Dog the Bounty Hunter,” “King of Cars,” “Gene Simmons Family Jewels,” “Driving Force” and “Criss Angel Mindfreak”
  • ADV Films. Top offerings from the No. 1 producer-distributor of Japanese animation (“anime”) outside Japan
  • National Geographic. The television series “Is It Real?” and “Taboo” as well as programs such as “21 Days to Baghdad” and “Air Force One”
  • A broad action-sports offering including extreme skiing and snowboarding, skateboarding, motocross, surfing and mountain biking

It's fantastic to see more content coming to the marketplace, especially ADV films. It shows that Microsoft is trying to reach out to the Japanese market with anime, as well as the Sony/Nintendo fans that were weened on anime-based games like the .hack// series.
