We'd just about crossed Zune off our radar gaming-wise until Think Secret, the popular Apple insider website that's been the source of numerous lawsuits because of its well-kept sources, revealed more details about Microsoft's audio visual device. You can read through Think Secret's likely on-target (considering their track record) anonymous information comparing Zune to the iPod, but the most interesting nugget comes from details on Zune's internal 400 Mhz DPS processor. Microsoft's bundling far more power than what's needed for audio and video feedback, so what could be up their sleeves?
With Zune coming out of the Xbox team, games are, of course, the first guess, though we're hard pressed to find a reason for Microsoft to release a device that's meant to enter the same market as PSP and Nintendo DS. Something powerful enough to connect with Live Anywhere and run Xbox Live Arcade, titles, however, seems far more likely.
I think it might have a MSN mobile or something with live anywhere. Microsoft actually has a reason to include wireless since they have alot of other products it can connect with including the xbox 360. Apple wouldn'y really make sense. I perdict that xbox live arcade game would be play over the zune and since it's saved with your gamertag you won't have to pay for games you already bought on your x360. Or maybe the zune will run at a high resolution so it needs the extra power to run it.
it plays Xbox Live games... Zuma, Geometry Wars... that would be sweet.
Zune sucks.what a stupid name.
Yeah - that's a great name, its not even a pod....shoot, if the thing holds as much music as an ipod, has a nice user interface, has a decent music store - PLUS all of the music is compatible with my 360 and it is wireless, then I'll definately be getting one of these instead of another ipod...
