Microsoft might have just shared a slew of happy Xbox One news, but it also has something sad to announce: the death of Xbox Video support for Zune. To be precise: Zune's PC client, whatever Zune players are left out there and even Windows Phone 7 devices will no longer be able to play Xbox Video content starting February 2014. Redmond says it's a result of the company updating its video catalog to be able to add high-quality files to the service more quickly. Seeing as Zune marketplace was also axed recently, this doesn't come as a huge surprise. That doesn't mean you can only use Xbox Video on the company's consoles, though -- it'll still be very much accessible on Windows Phone 8 devices, Windows 8/8.1 PCs and the service's yet-to-be-launched website.
