Xbox Live Video Marketplace to launch in Europe next week

4 12 2007


Just over a year after launching the Xbox Live Video Marketplace in the US, Microsoft is finally ready to bring the service to Europe, with Computer and Video Gaming reporting that it’ll open for business on December 11. Sadly, it looks like it’ll be rental-only, at least at first, with 720p flicks going for 320 MS points (about £3.23, or $6.64) and SD movies for 250 points (about £2.13, or $4.39). Rentals will stick around on your hard drive for 14 days after you download them, but once you hit play they’ll delete themselves after 24 hours — a system which seems needlessly complicated to us, but we’ll take what we can get. Peep the full list of titles available at launch after the break.
