I was just checking out Pocket-lint when I stumbled across an article talking about music videos and the Xbox 360.
It looks like Microsoft has an agreement with Epic Records to offer exclusive artist content and high-definition music video downloads free for all Xbox 360 gamers for a year.
In the agreement, over the next year, Xbox360 and Epic Records will showcase 12 up-and-coming artists through the Artist of the Month (AOM) program via the Xbox Live service.
Kicking off the AOM program on Xbox Live is British singer-songwriter Natasha Bedingfield.
“Our goal has always been to make Xbox Live a cutting-edge entertainment experience”, said Peter Moore, corporate vice president of the Interactive Entertainment Business at Microsoft. “This agreement with Epic Records offers our members exclusive artistic content directly from the source. With Artist of the Month we will be providing exactly what music-loving gamers want: brand-new, exclusive music videos that can be downloaded quickly, easily and free of charge.”
I think its cool that they want to offer such content, and even better that it will be free for a year, but I can’t help but wonder how long it will take until my hard drive is full, and how much will it cost me after the initial year?
