Being able to download movies and TV shows that you've purchased through the newly announced Xbox Live Video Marketplace is all very well. However, what do you do when your tiny 20GB hard drive is full?

According to Microsoft, that's no problem at all. Just delete the content you've paid for and then download it again at no cost any time you like.

According to Ovum analyst Jonathan Coham and this writer, Microsoft has got to be kidding. Coham says: "In terms of capabilities, the Xbox 360 only has a 20GB storage capacity. This significantly limits the console's ability to store premium content, especially considering it is required for game updates and save files. This means that users will need to delete content they have paid for. Although Microsoft has said these users will be able to re-download the content free-of-charge, this would be a bizarre concept for most. Microsoft should concentrate on providing better storage capabilities, either externally, locally or via network attached devices."
