Zune HD Gaming – Splosion man on the run?

1 min read


When thinking of personal music players in the market now it’s pretty much impossible not to think of the all dominating iPod and with the latest iPods finally getting a FM radio I can’t say that I am to interested in getting anything else.

However the latest Zune advert has been uncovered which has now confirmed the previously anticipated gaming ability of the upcoming Zune and it shows us how sexy this little device is.

Gaming on the iPhone/ iPod touch is nothing new and we all expected the Zune to head that way as well but think about it.

If you could install Splosion Man, Shadow Complex and Trials HD on your Zune to play on the go, and earn achievements, wouldn’t that push you towards the once belittled Zune?

The handheld gaming market has suddenly become a little saturated what with the Nintendo DSi, Sony PSP, Sony PSPGo, iPhone/iTouch and now the Zune HD.

Can the market support 4 major players?

    Still on the fence with the zune……

    Will need a new MP3 player next year, there are just so many gadgets out there for the ipod, and ALOT of ipod car support.

    Can you actually get a zune outside of the states?

  • I want a iTrip and I saw a Belkin make as well, but dammit, R650 for the little device.

  • From the TV series, Chuck:

    Morgan: Yeah sure, Ive got it on my Zune, ill go get it.
    Chuck: Dude? You have a Zune?
    Morgan: Nah, im just playing with you, Ill go get my iPod.

    I have a ‘old’ 30 gig zune.

    Awesome device. And was loads cheaper than the ipod at the time.

    R890 for a 30 gig MP3/vid/photo player, with games (hexic) and wifi and FM… bargain.

    Will I buy the new one and import again?

    Hell yeah.

  • You experienced some good points right here. I accomplished a investigation for the topic and bought most peoples will concur together with your blog.
