Santa Monica, Calif. (September 20, 2006) -- GameTrailers (GT), a division of MTV Networks, today announced a strategic alignment with Xbox Live on Xbox 360. Once a month, GameTrailers will create new HD video game segments for Xbox Live Marketplace featuring exclusive free first looks at the hottest upcoming titles being released on Xbox 360.
Xbox Live® Marketplace is a one-stop digital download center on Xbox 360 for additional high-definition game-related and entertainment content, from playable game demos and movie trailers to exclusive music videos and downloadable Xbox LiveArcade games.
