Zune Marketplace to close, Xbox Music and Xbox Video to replace it

The upcoming Xbox 360 update has wrought yet another change to Microsoft's entertainment structure: Zune Marketplace is being retired in favour of two new storefronts, Xbox Music and Xbox Video. Unlimited streaming will still be available, via the Xbox Music Pass, and those with a Zune Music Pass will be able to grab their ten free songs per month as normal. More details are available in a Microsoft FAQ. The main content of the update is the retirement of Microsoft Points in favour of real currency.

Thanks, GameInformer.
