Paramount Pictures joins Xbox Live

Paramount Pictures and Microsoft have partnered to allow the movie studio's content to be integrated into the software giant's Xbox Live service.

The program launched with free, high-definition, downloadable content from two summer 2006 Paramount films: “Mission: Impossible III” and “Nacho Libre.”

CNET said the partnership is about bringing a wide variety of content to the online Xbox community service, including movie trailers, graphics that can be used to customize Xbox games and contests whose winners will get to play games against stars from the studio's films.

More than 2 million Xbox users are currently members of the Xbox Live community, and its marketplace — where users can buy and sell add-ons for their games — has seen more than 10 million total downloads.
