    WP8 Phones Do Not Support Xbox Video Purchases

    From Engadget:

    "If you just bought a Windows Phone 8 device like the Nokia Lumia 920 or the HTC 8x and were hoping to load it with Xbox content for the holidays -- after all, they're both from Microsoft, right? -- it seems that you may be in for some disappointment. As of right now, purchases or rentals from the newly-branded Xbox Video will not sync to Windows Phone 8. Microsoft has even officially acknowledged the issue in its support page, stating: "Windows Phone 8 does not currently support playback of rented or purchased content from the Xbox Video Store." The article goes on to say that you can go to the Windows Phone Feature Suggestions page to recommend it for future releases. Gee, thanks, Microsoft; that's so helpful."

    Xbox integration was supposed to be a MAJOR selling point for WP8. And it doesn't even work??????? Looks like Microsoft really did rush out an unfinished version to consumers. Couple this with the freezes and reboots users are howling about and you have a potential disaster for WP8 sales. 
