I think that the Xbox 360 integration is what's going to make or break the Zune HD. It can do a lot of cool things, but so can the past Zune models, and they're not doing all hot.
It could be the mobile Microsoft gaming device we've all been wanting since Xbox Live came out, especially with the "easier" Live Arcade games.
If they can integrate Xbox 360 and possibly the Netflix features with the ZHD, then I think it will do way better than any other Zune device.
Man, Zune plus casual live games with your friends AND Netflix - count me in! I have steered clear of Zune and iPod Touch, but this would really help me choose....
This plus Windows 7, and hopefully Windows Live integration, could make late 2009 one of the best quarters for Microsoft.
Yeah I think so too but their predictions aren't reflected htat. maybe they're just being really cautious.
I know they have a stable of creative engineers and think tanks over there in Redmond. Put them to use Microsoft!
1 vs 100 would be cool, although i have even yet to play it on my xbox, shame on me.
This game is perfect for when you don't want to play something hardcore (blood! conquer!), but still want it to be competitive and interesting. I haven't played one of the 2 hour live shows, but I've done a ton of the 30 minute extended sessions and I usually just do one after the other. Good times... me and my girlfriend play together on the same console a lot too....
I always forget that its on and whatnot i am going to try and play on my vacation this week.
How would Zune HD work with Android?
I'm not sure it would since they are sort of competitors now..
Microsoft needs more partners for sure! The only content provider they can count on so far is themselves!
(Hence, 1 vs 100!)
Ironically im playing it now but i do agree
That is definitely true. More partners could help them out in a few different ways.
Once it comes out of beta it will gain more sponsors and what not i am sure of it.
