ESPN joins forces with Xbox Live

Xbox LivePeople may not readily believe it, but there are a lot of video game enthusiasts who also love sports. If you’re one of them, here’s some good news for ya: ESPN has partnered with Microsoft to offer content via Xbox Live.

According to the press release, "fans of all ages can access a growing catalog of marquee sporting events and timely programming." Users will be able to download full-length NCAA football and basketball games, Madden Nation, the World Series of Poker, Summer X Games 13, The Contender, and more.

Unfortunately, you’ll get games two days after they take place, and still have to pay. A standard-def NCAA game will run $3, while high-def will set you back $4.50. The regular TV content will also be priced differently for SD and HD, running $2 and $3 respectively.

A good first step joining the two forces together… But some serious kinks need to be worked out before any sports fan takes it seriously.
