    I think you're reading too much into this. It's just an advert for Windows 8/RT. Otherwise, we could conclude they are dropping support for the Xbox itself :p

    So, what exactly is official here and what does this trailer have to do with anything?

    This - executed a little better - is how all these internet rumors emerge.

    Most of these have been out since Oct. So now MS is advertising the fun side of W8. Which brings me to a question I've always had, why no ads for Netflix on the Xbox or Xbox video or Paramount or Cinemanow? How many people would buy an Xbox over a Roku if this fact was more well known? Yes, Netflix is on everything, but the others...

    I haven't seen an Xbox ad in a long time, and I've never seen a Roku ad.

    So if they are out, why isn't WP8 included nor aknowledged in the promo? Because MS does not care, that's why

    It's a Windows 8 commercial, most likely nobody of the Windows Phone division was involved here...

    No, it's called PLAY with the ability to play anywhere on your Windows "tablet".

    It's ok if you don't like W8/WP8, but please do it on another website. This website is for those that enjoy using Windows.

    I just saw an ad before Zero Dark Thirty. A general WP8 and then another for the 920. This was on Sunday. So ads be popping up everywherez!

    I wonder how the office team feels? Haven't seen an ad...ever...? People are so dramatic.

    tbh, I think you're reading that video incorrectly. It's all about more W8/Xbox integration, but doesn't explicitly show about how they're dropping WP8 XBL games support. Maybe they've already cracked the W8/Xbox paradigm but need more work to add WP8 into the mix?

    I saw those ads too at a movie theatre on Tuesday night.

    I haven't seen Xbox ads, though.

    It makes sense, though. WP8 is new and current. I don't expect an Xbox marketing campaign until the next Xbox model is released.

    If you stop the video at 1:31 then press UP, UP, DOWN, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT, LEFT, RIGHT, B, A, START then a secret message from Bill Gates comes on saying. "HAHA WINDerz Fern is fur DA LOOOOOZERS! NO mer OF DAH gamez ON WINDerz Fern!"
    Damn you MS ! You win again.
    I'll do what others won't do Hiiiii. I'll thank you for opening my eyes!
