Next gen Zune reportedly on track for holiday season

We've already heard some talk that a new Zune would be coming before the end of the year, but it looks like things now may be starting to get a bit more certain -- at least according to the folks at Whiz Byte, who say they've heard as much from a Microsoft press representative. Specifically, the rep reportedly said that we can "expect an update later this year prior to the holiday season." While there's no word on exactly what form that "update" will take, the rep did give a few less than surprising general indications of what we can expect from the Zune in the future, stating that there's "three predictable paths along which we'll expand Zune." Those include updates to the device family itself, including "new sizes, styles and price points," along with new features that'll help the Zune "move towards parity with iPod" and new geographic markets for the Zune.

I use my Zune like crazy. It's been one of the best gadgets I've ever purchased. I'm really looking forward to some of the updates, especially video marketplace and possibly gaming capabilities.

While this is a cool product, I don't see how it relates to videogames.

it's certainly not what it was intended for. If they integrate simple games into it, that would be fine. I certainly don't look for them to come out with DS or PSP type gaming by any means. As far as being posted on N4G, well, I think it just kind of gets lumped in with MS. Still relevant, IMO.

there is a tech section on this site so it has some relevance.

They at least realize the Zune isn't as good as the iPod yet...

"along with new features that'll help the Zune "move towards parity with iPod""
