What's up guys,

Great news for all you users out there that rock out with your Xbox.
You can now watch some of your favorite CR anime through Microsoft's Zune Marketplace, one of the leading living room-based video services in North America that spans Xbox 360, Zune HD and Windows-based PCs.

Zune will feature downloadable episodes from the titles listed below and each episode is priced for download-to-own on the Xbox and other Zune platforms and devices.

The Zune Marketplace will be launching CR titles that will include:



For more information you can check out the official site here: http://www.zune.net

And speaking of Giant Killing, if you're a fan of the anime or a fan of football (soccer), be sure to check out the final World Cup game going on this Sunday! It'll be the Netherlands vs. Spain!

It'll be super exciting as neither team has ever won a World Cup title. Who will take home the trophy to their home country and revel in victory?

The link to Zune includes the period at the end of that sentence. Which, in turn, causes an error when trying to navigate to the site.

Not free as far as I can tell... Too bad... Maybe CR could release their own app thing on the Xbox LIVE Marketplace, similar to Netflix's.

I'm guessing I am not the target audience ... I'm already watching Giant Killing, so wouldn't need to download it to catch it out of reach if WiFi, I can get Haruhi DVD's from Netflix if I want to rewatch it on the go, and I had to look up the third title when I say the announcement on ANN.

Thing with DRM downloads is they are not really download-to-own, they are more "download-to-lease-until-the-DRM-server-turns-off". I'd really only download to own something as a way to give a bit extra to the creators ... for instance, Aoi Hana or Sasameki Koto.

And even then, I'd be reluctant to contribute revenues to Micro$oft along the way, so I'd wait until it is download to own on someone else's marketplace. Google's Android, f'rinstance - I'd be willing to get an Android tablet to view downloads.
