If you haven't noticed the Xbox doesn't get the Vudu HDX movies but the Playstation 3 does, why?

Now I'm not totally sure why but I see other movies advertised as 1080p streaming, so why did they leave us out? I've seen some HDX movies and they are in my opinion the best quality streaming downloads that you can get.

Comments?

Main Speakers : Phase Technology PC 3.1 Series II

have you tried the 1080p movies on Zune? Zune and Vudu are pretty much the same thing with the same selection...

Yeah, I have but I still think the HDX movies look the best. I just wanted to know why they don't offer it. Is the Xbox 360 incapable of 1080p?
