Um, Zune wasn't exactly a success.

fluffydelusions2234d ago

True, but the xbox name is more recognized and established than zune.

RememberThe3572234d ago

Thats the point. This guy was supposed to make Zune a recognized name and he didn't. He took a great product and couldn't sell it at all. Hopefully the guy is there for the hardware/software development more than the business strategy.

Well i use Zune Everysingle day. It links my phone to my computer to my xbox

MultiConsoleGamer2234d ago

Zune definitely isn't a bad product. I'm only talking about the marketing angle.

TheEatingVodka2234d ago

He's not talking about the service man.. He's talking about the device itself like Zune 80, Zune HD etc

VonAlbrecht2234d ago

The Zune wasn't a success, but you can't refute that the design of it is incredible. This guy obviously knows what he's doing.

MR LOOKINGBILL2233d ago

thats because the more popular Ipod and Iphhone killed it.

I think it will be more social/online based. Next cycle probably won't be about how many pixels you can push but who has the most appealing ecosystem to play in.

Sobari2234d ago

Zune? Next Xbox confirmed for flop.

LackTrue4K2234d ago

I used to have a first gen Zune, liked it and all but its battery sucked!!! and well i like the current Zune and all but, it still sucks.

So Zune and xbox360's DRM are the only things I really really REALLY hate about my console. The fact that I buy a movie/show and I can't watch it unless I have internet connectivity to Zune really pisses me off. Same thing regarding 360's DRM with regards to all the xbla games that suddenly turn into demos when a storm hits.

so...

t(-.-t) ZUNE.

I only hope you rot in hell with all the Virtua Boys and my Amiga1200!!!

I used to have that problem, regarding the XBLA games becoming 'trials.'
I'd take my xbox out to a buddies, and I could never play 'my' full XBLA games.
As it irritated the hell outta me, I decided to look into it, see what the deal was.
Apparently, most of those games weren't linked to my xbox; the licenses, I mean.

You can get on xbox.com and transfer all the licenses to your xbox.
This will allow for all your paid-for XBLA games to be playable offline..

Thanks dude... I'll definitely look into it. I've called XBL before regarding this and was essentially told "Tough luck". Things must have changed.

KaBaW2233d ago (Edited 2233d ago )

No problem. Hopefully it works out. Have you gotten a new xBox lately?
When you buy a game on an xBox, the license is linked to that xBox.
So, if you switch to another xBox, all those licenses are not valid offline.
But, you can only (if I remember correctly) transfer licenses once a year.

Yeah. They do that sometimes, lol. Might've gotten someone who didn't know.
Well, anyway, hope you can figure it out, and hope this helps you.. (:

Nevers2232d ago

Yes I actually did get a new 360 fairly recently. I guess I see another call to Xbox upcoming.
