That was quick; you gotta love the web. Earlier this morning, I was
ranting a little about the lack of 720p game trailers on the updated
Xbox site. It didn't take long before one of the Xbox MVPs provided a
little more insight. Matt Gerlach
pointed out that the high-def trailers are available on a Microsoft download site
. [Thanks, Matt!]
Head on over to download and view
to your heart's content; just be sure to come back here and comment on
the better ones since these files can be fairly large! I still stand by
my original rant that Microsoft is missing out on some marketing here.
Why not tout the high-def aspect on the newly updated site?
the hard-core gamers have likely seen these trailers since they were
out in August. What about the rest of the market, especially those who
are new to the HDTV world? These folks won't be hitting the gamer sites
first, they'll be hitting the home page to console. Every day that
passes without highlighting the 720p trailers on the Xbox site
is a lost day of marketing two ultra-hot technologies right before the holiday season.
