arenafoot, the movie is part of a plan Microsoft had to start making its own content.. movies and stuff.. exclusively for Xbox Video. But before it really got off the ground, Microsoft killed that plan. Fortunately Atari: Game Over was already in production so they finished it and put it up on Xbox as they had planned. You can also stream it online at XboxVideo.com if you have an account. They made the movie as exclusive content to get people to want to be on xbox, sign up for an account and live within the Microsoft ecosystem. That's how they make money. Just like House of Cards is "Free" if you pay for your Netflix subscription. It's an incentive to get you to subscribe to their products. But since Microsoft scrapped those plans, they made it available for sale other places for direct download like a normal movie. Which is awesome because it means so many more people will see and remember the movie and it won't be lost with time.
