Well, right now what were doing is really specific to the XBOX 360. Its also for the U.S. only, but the platform is built and were able now to get more locally relevant content on the market as we span across the world. We also, as you know, are doing things to bring the functionality of Live to Windows and mobile phones, and things like that. Right now, this entertainment strategy is really focused on adding TV, movies, and other entertainment content to the XBOX 360 experience.

Well this is certainly a pain for the people in the UK, Australia etc... looking forward to this service, I still hope the separate account workaround will still be working when this thing launches.
