Paramount Teaming up with Microsoft for Xbox 360 Content push

Both Major Nelson and Ehomeupgrade scooped the news that Paramount will now be delivering content via the Xbox live marketplace through an alliance with Microsoft.  I think that the implications of these dealings are rather clear: it is only a matter of time before we are able to download SD and HD content directly from Paramount via the XBLM.  Admittedly this is bypassing the HD DVD format but if Microsoft can create a protected path for distrubution for publishers, I could definately see how this could be the future of movie distribution.

Even if we never see the day when Paramount sells their movies on the XBLM, we can still enjoy the availability of free Xbox themes, media, and picture packs!
