This one could be really huge, as Microsoft opens up a new front in the console wars by announcing that US Xbox 360 gamers will be able to download TV show episodes and full-length movies via Xbox Live starting Nov. 22, the first anniversary of the Xbox 360.

Check out the hackenslash GameBlog post for more details.

Of course, they’ll need to offer a bigger hard drive for the Xbox 360 to really make this service viable, plus you can expect Sony to counter this with a similar service on the PlayStation 3.

Here’s hoping Xbox Live subscribers outside the US will also be able to enjoy this new service.
