[Zune Thoughts]Zune Games in Action!

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter

There’s definitely a lot of excitement over the upcoming Zune games that will be released later this year. I wasn’t thrilled with the idea of adding games to the Zune but I have to admit, Microsoft has completely surprised me with the whole XNA integration. They really took what I felt would be a gimmick and made it something impressive. I Started Something has linked a video of the gameplay in action and after seeing what the Zune is going to be capable of, I am really looking forward to this. I think this will really give people a reason to consider the Zune. Check out this awesome video!

I was hoping they would add some game functions to my favorite little gadget.

Is this only for the "New" zunes like the 80GB? I have the Zune 30, And in the video it looks like he is uing the tuch pad to move the ship. Which the Zune 30 doesn't have.

Damnit, I just bought a Creative Zen and now I want to get rid of it and get a Zune!
rep+ although I shouldn't because you just convinced me to drain more money from my pocket.

Awesome! I'm listening to my Zune now

But I have the previous model, the 30GB... =/

The games should work on my model though, right? I don't see why it would be only for the new ones, as I don't think there's any differences other than physical size, HD size, and some minor aesthetic differences...
