Microsoft gets exclusive for new season of LeBron James web video series

Microsoft has slowly been adding more exclusive entertainment and media series for its various platforms and products. Indeed, the company said it plans to offer more exclusive content for Xbox 360 consoles earlier this week. Now Microsoft has announced it had secured the rights to show the season season of The LeBrons, an animated web series co-created by NBA player LeBron James.

Microsoft's Major Nelson site states that the second season will be shown exclusively on Xbox Live for Xbox 360 owners as well as the MSN.com website. The first season of the series, which features different characters that are supposed to represent different aspects of LeBron James, debuted on YouTube in 2011. While the first season used traditional 2D animation Microsoft says the second season will use " ... computer-generated animation to create a more realistic three-dimensional world."  There's no word on when it will debut but it will be a US exclusive.

In related news, Microsoft also launched two more media streaming channels for Xbox 360 owners this week. One is the popular Latin American channel Telemundo for US residents, with clips from the channel's various "telenovelas". The other is Neon Alley, which has uncut anime movies, along with news about the anime industry, for US and Canadian Xbox Live subscribers.

I like that they included an Asian chick and a nerdy white kid so as to make the whole thing P.C. and all. Hahahaa....Stupid world! All your base belong too me!

All I can say about ANYTHING that has to do with this whiner is

Seems like quite a waste of an Xbox too.
