* Live gets Matrix

Xbox/Xbox Games
Microsoft's certainly pushing things along - they're now trying to sell The Matrix over Xbox Live. Specifically, if you buy the HD-DVD edition, you get the Animatrix DVD as a free Live download.

They're also offering free clips over Live, to show off how great the HD encoding looks.

Ars has the reaction:

Being able to watch some of these scenes in high-definition for free is a great bonus; I just downloaded the lobby shoot-out scene, and it looks great. This is a solid promotion, and it boosts the visibility of both HD DVD and the Video Marketplace on the 360. The PlayStation 3 has a bigger stock hard drive than the Premium 360, and Sony certainly owns plenty of content, so I'd love to see them start offering deals like this through the PlayStation Store, along with movies and music.
