Most of you know by now that movies and TV shows are coming
to Xbox Live Marketplace on November 22nd (just one day shy of the Lost Planet multiplayer demo
!). To promote this momentous occasion, a few trailers have been put up on Marketplace, featuring previews of what you'll be able to download. Yesterday, it was a Paramount Pictures preview, and today it's MTV. Naturally, these videos are there to promote all the high definition content you'll be able to buy starting on Thanksgiving eve. Why then are these videos so damned ugly? The Paramount download wasn't great but it was passable. Now, the MTV video ... well, we've seen higher resolutions on YouTube
. Seriously, it's a pixelated mess, like watching something on SEGA CD
. What's funny is that we actually grabbed the "HD" version of the video. Let's hope this is a mistake and not an indication of what we can expect from the video Marketplace.
Anyone grab the UFC trailers? Are they any better?
