Microsoft hopes to turn it around with Zune HD

After three years and untold millions spent on the line, Microsoft's hopes of cutting into iPod's big lead are now on the Zune HD, with its 3.3-inch multitouch screen, streaming-music feature, and the ability to playback video, with the help of an HDTV, in 720p. A 16GB Zune HD is available at retailers for $219.99 and a 32GB will cost $289.99.

Lol @ article. Microsoft can't turn anything around.

morganfell3949d ago (Edited 3949d ago )

What are they trying to turn around? profit? It isn't quality. I can't believe the way gaming apps boot. Just lame:

Madusha3949d ago

IMO the Zune is only good with looks.

DevastationEve3949d ago (Edited 3949d ago )

Morganfell...came to comment on a product he does not like. And tell us why it sucks, despite the fact that we all have the ability to decide for ourselves.

I need all Sony fanboys to follow his example!

edit: well morganfell that's like accepting that you're uneducated. instead of doing that you GET educated, right? okay, so to correct the err is not to ACCEPT the err.

morganfell3949d ago (Edited 3949d ago )

Someone get me a Waaaaambulance.

Where do you want me to start. People in glass houses shouldn't throw stones. I will admit the truth, you won't. Care to look up what name that hangs around your neck?

*sits up in chair*

Oh ....hope this start`s to be a fight.

Ill be right back...getting some chips .

morganfell3949d ago (Edited 3949d ago )

No there will not be a fight. I can admit what I am. I won't debate such with someone that has the same personality facets yet refuses to admit it out of pride or lack of perception. When you realize that is the person with whom you are dealing you are better off just ignoring them.

KionicWarlord2223949d ago


Im very disappointed right now morganfell.


pumpkinpunker3949d ago (Edited 3949d ago )

morganfell, what is you deal?

Did MS pee in your cheerios or something?

It's not bad to have dreams, but the reality is the Zune is as relevant as my last fart.

Madusha3949d ago

Lol, you say the funniest stuff. Tracked XD

STICKzophrenic3949d ago

Why would you track him? All you have to know is that he'll show up in every article about a 360 game.


Hottest Games
Halo 3: ODST | Xbox 360
Uncharted 2: Among Thieves | PS3


Saaking3949d ago

Why track him? Well, like Madusha said, he's the funniest guy on N4G. Stop crying bot.

STICKzophrenic3949d ago

If by funniest you mean the biggest f*ckin' idiot, right alongside yourself, then yeah he's the funniest guy here.

dustgavin3949d ago (Edited 3949d ago )

Let those tears out. You are clinging to what game is currently hottest on N4G? Lol!

Uncharted 2----9.8

STICKzophrenic3949d ago

And all you f*cking lamers are crying because ODST is receiving good reviews.

But hey, I have the choice to play both ODST AND Uncharted 2. I'm a gamer, and play games, not consoles. Sucks to be you pathetic losers that only own one console and live for spamming lame sh*t in articles for games you don't want to play on a console you don't own. Grow up losers.

I personally liked the Zune. That's called an opinion, look it up.

edit: yes morganfell...because coming in here to comment on something that doesn't interest you is a PERFECT use of time. my're so smart :\

morganfell3949d ago (Edited 3949d ago )

So you can have an opinion and others can't?

What a waste of time. Where's the ignore....

XLiveGamer3949d ago

Well what do we have here?... Oh is Morganfell a.k.a. ThatCanadianGuy a.k.a. Multiple Accounts Creator!

He is against a MS product? Apparently this guy is Steve Jobs people!

Why dont you create your own Gaming Website and create multiple accounts and keep trying to convince people in buying PS3 in other place?

Dude really you bash everything that is a competition to Sony/PS3.

If you are so happy with your PS3 WHY THE FnCK you show up every time bashing anything that its a competition to Xbox brand?

Seriously... look for help.

jib3949d ago (Edited 3949d ago )

yeah seriously morganfell, get a life outside of letting the world know how much you hate anything MS-related

on topic: one of my favorite pmp. i don't know about being able to "turn it around" but i wouldn't count 'em out on eating a tad bit more of that marketshare pie cause zuneHDs looking good

morganfell3949d ago (Edited 3949d ago )

The Zune HD will wind up no different than the 1st generation except there are a few more people to be disappointed when all of the grand plans fail to show up on wedding day.

As for the other comments, HA HA HA!!!!! Go ahead and have the mods look and see if there isn't a thousand miles between ThatCanadianGuy's IP and mine. You guys are too much. You can't stand the fact there are people in this world that will not be fooled by Microsoft throwing some money at the gaming world and making shadow puppets on the wall.

Tough, PS3 supporters prefer substance over flash. Why should I like MS? They have done nothing but slow progress for gamers, shoved faulty hardware on an entire world and then bought their way out of what should have been a mandatory recall. They have managed to buy and then dissolve every good dev house they have touched. Even Bungie has lost it's edge.

Too bad, you are on your own. If you can't stand people that are willing to speak the truth then you had best avoid this board.

I can revel in the fact my opinion matters so much your took the time to respond. Thank you for the attention.

ThatCanadianGuy3949d ago (Edited 3949d ago )

Whoa, whoa, whoa!

Don't get me involved with the zune.I don't like to associate myself with failure.That's why i don't game on my 360.

And LOL @ Xlivegamer.Man, i don't know about you there Morganfell..
But i'm getting pretty tired of these kids screaming "Multiple accounts!" anytime they feel their opinions being threatened.

This is like the fourth or fifth time i've read the same thing.
Look fella's..

Slightly similar avatars (Of the best character of all time) doesn't equal the same person.

NegativeCreepWA3949d ago

morgan, maybe you should try product before you run your mouth about it. then people might give a sh1t what you have to say about it.

Kushan3949d ago

"You guys are too much. You can't stand the fact there are people in this world that will not be fooled by Microsoft throwing some money at the gaming world and making shadow puppets on the wall."

I suppose I should point out that it's a portable MEDIA player first and a games handheld second? Otherwise you may as well complain that the PSP is a crappy, oversized MP3 player since that's only a secondary function anyway.

Zune hd is great .

What Microsoft needs i must say is a itunes ( yes i said itunes) for the zune .

The screen and UI are great.

STICKzophrenic3949d ago

They could call it...


Kushan3949d ago

It's called the Zune Marketplace.

FragMnTagM3949d ago

Best PMP I have used in fact. Don't listen to Morganfail he is a troll anyways. Before bashing something, it may be a good idea to check it out first. It really is a great player and deserves some of Apple's spotlight. Sorry but iTunes is horrible and can learn from Zune software 4.0.
