- complete NCAA football games
- complete NCAA basketball games
- complete coverage of X Games
- the "Madden Nation" series
The games will become available for download within 48 hours of their live broadcast . The NCAA games will be available for $3 a piece ( standard definition version), while the HD version will cost $4.50. Standard definition ESPN shows will cost $2, while HD versions will charge $1 more.
It would be interesting what will be Microsoft's next move, given the fact that its competitors seem to do little or absolutely nothing in this particular area. The PlayStation 3 currently sticks only with offering games and movie trailers, while the Nintendo Wii has no offer to begin with.
