Major if you could get us an update on the status of getting a Canadian and/or European video marketplace up and running I would greatly appreciate that.

Peter said:

So when is South Park Season 11 coming out? I thought it was supposed to come out today and Live Support said so too.  Also is it gonna be in HD?

Just curious if you saw that or not, Major, but it would be good to talk about the UU traffic the Xbox.com site gets.  Obviously, I'm not surprised by these results at all though.

Parm said:

I sure do wish Video Marketplace was available in the UK, this is a feature I would surely use.

I'm a keen movie enthusiast just as much as I am a gamer. I don't however wish to participate in the HD-DVD and Blu Ray format war, my personal opinion is that digital distribution is the way forward and Video Marketplace would be perfect for me to obtain my HD movie content.

Finally I've been waiting for the departed to show up on the marketplace in HD thanks for the heads up major.

Finally a movie I want to see in HD. I bet The Departed will be top of video marketplace when it releases.

Willeth said:

Wait, How To Eat Fried Worms was made into a MOVIE? When did that happen?! That was seriously one of my favourite books as a kid. Ugh, if this was on some sort of UK-based service I'd download it in a second. A SECOND, I SAY! :D

Enough said:

Ok I am from Canada so I want the VMP as much as the next guy but please stop posting asking about when it's coming. If im getitng sick of it I cant imagine how everyone else is feeling at this point. Just give it a rest. Knowing the status of it is not going to make it happen any quicker. Just give it up, Just go rent the movie and put it in your 360 to watch. Same deal.

I want to rent from my Canadian 360 thanks.

Ertai Wiz Adept said:

I hope we get a bigger hard drive soon so we can fit more of this on our 360, and also the option to buy movies rather than just rent them, which probably would come with a larger hard drive.

ShinobiSteve81 said:


Seriously....what the hell was Warner Bros. smoking when they came up with the idea of a AQUAMAN tv show?!??!??

And as was said above....when there's news about videos goin to other countries...THEYLL LET YOU KNOW!!!!! Give it a damn rest!!!

droptop GP said:

i'm in canada and have all this money i want to give mircosoft for video content.

try harder.


No trailers or Music Videos?

quickshade said:

Departed and me have a date this saturday, That is if i don't see 300 again. Thanks major.

CletusKlump90 said:

More Jason movies!!!

Pissed-OFF said:

Hey Major,any news on the constant lockups that are plaguing the older 360 users on GRAW2? I think UBI and MS better be working on a patch to keep those several thousand users on forums all over the internet a solution. Ignore the problem whether is UBI's or yours is not a good company stance.

March 13, 2007 7:00 PM [Direct Link]


Wow...this is a very impressive and surprising movie lineup.  Some of these are not on PPV or OnDemand this quickly.  I am wholeheartedly impressed.  Good work MSFT.

TheColdWolf said:

What about the AquaTeenHungerForce Movie Trailer. Is it going to be up soon? The movie comes out April 13th(My BirthDay.

lightsup55 said:


Download and watch The Departed!!!

I watched it when it first came out in theaters.

smis7 said:

Ba...The Departed isn't available till the end of the week. O well.

This is the one movie I was hoping would come soon, thanks.

Stuart said:

Sweet, The Departed!

KR said:

Jason Goes To Hell - best fanservice ending to a movie ever. Too bad the rest of it was weak.

March 13, 2007 8:35 PM [Direct Link]

Hoffer said:

I've had the HD version in my Netflix's queue since its release.  I may have to pull the trigger on the marketplace version since I still haven't seen it.

Logan said:

Its all bull that Canadians and other gamers dont get it. only the Americans

Jack Black said:

so basically if I buy a couple of these movies I won't have any hard drive space left... no thanks

metallicorphan said:

okay 3 things

1 ) shinobisteve,dont complain about us(the rest of the world) complaining,you guys wouldnt like it if one country was getting all this and everyone else doing without...its been nearly 6 months!!

2 )for this  video marketplace to really work,we all need bigger hard drives,some people will be unwilling to buy/download stuff because of the inadequate hard drive space,i am hoping that a decent sized hard drive will be available by the time this video marketplace comes to my country

3 )if anyone missed or didnt see the first episode of season 11 south park....get it....its a great episode!!

KilleRMurdocK said:

I 2nd Parm! Please bring video content to outside the US.

Jacob Jensen said:


Im going to post messages like this, until we get it!

Its taking too long - get a move on!!

MPAndyP said:

Just think, if this did come to the UK we'd only be ripped off by paying twice as much for the movies anyway. I'll bet this will NEVER make it to the UK. I don't have facts to support this but I'd be willing to lay down cash in a bet.

metallicorphan said:

why does 'how to eat fried worms' sound familiar?

is it a judy blume book or something?...never mind...search engine time

Dustin C said:

Get Marketplace in Canada or we may just annex ourselves into your nation and poison your children with our liberal ways.

x TOAST RACK x said:

When will the Marketplace people add "HD Available" as one of the filters in the Movies section?

It's such a vital feature currently missing, so you have to laboriously scroll through every movie to see which ones have HD available.

For me, I'm only interested in the HD ones, so it would be a big time-saver and revenue-earner for M$!

Just once announcement on the status of the video market place in the UK would settle peoples anger, also firday the 13th :( i wanna watch it :(

March 14, 2007 1:34 AM [Direct Link]

XanderSan said:

Shouldn't we have gotten 'Infernal Affairs' before 'The Departed'? Otherwise people might get the wrong idea *grins*

I'm looking forward to getting this in the UK eventually, it'll definitely help with my Film Theory work being able to actually download movies directly to- Fine I want to watch 'How to eat fried worms' too alright?! ...sniff...

Dwayne said:

Wow that Aquaman pilot was very good! Hope they will make more.

android land said:

glad we're getting The Departed in HD.

DeafmanX420 said:

Nice. But Major for the millionth, billionth time, get subtitles or captions for the deaf option available for some of ur hearing impaired gamers. I'd spend BIG MONEY renting your VMP movies if only I had the option to turn on english subtitles or captions for deaf and hearing impaired viewers. And so would my buddies.

If I had room on the HD I could buy more. Bigger HD please I just don't understand why this is so difficult.
