Microsoft will launch games and music downloads service for the second version of its Xbox games console, reports FT. The company is hoping Xbox Live Marketplace sales where users will be able to choose from up to 400 items will help move the home entertainment division into the black.

Microsoft users will be able to download complete games from November 22, the day of the launch…there will also be new music videos from rock bands Franz Ferdinand and Audioslave.

The company is also launching Microsoft Points pre-paid card…Consumers will be able to buy a card worth 1,600 points for $19.99 at shops in the US and then use the points to buy game items.
