MGM movies expected to become available on XBL include The Terminator, Platoon, Silence Of The Lambs, and Rain Man. Disney-ABC is expected to add popular shows such as High School Musical, Lost, and Desperate Housewives to the service. In this episode of The Reboot, Gates and Bach reveal the increasing popularity of the Xbox and also rock on with Velvet Revolver’s guitarist Slash on Guitar Hero.
