Rumor Overheard at GDC: Next-Gen Zune Available in August
Posted by XanTium | March 6 22:48 EST | News Category: Xbox360
From gizmodo.com:

This is horribly irresponsible rumor-mongering, but we over heard this tidbit about the Zune over at GDC. Apparently, if the person was correct and our ears didn't fail us, the next-gen Zune will be available in August. Unfortunately for the first-gen Zune team, the next version will feature gaming, which is supposedly making them feel dejected over working on a product (1st gen) that will be "abandoned".

My friend has a Zune, and he absolutely loves it. Even some of my friends who have iPods tell him they would rather have a Zune. Frankly, I don't see the need for gaming...it is a media player after all...

I have a zune and i love it and i do feel kinda pissed off but thats ok anways, i have a psp with fw 3.10OE so i can play all the classic games that i want. However i WILL be pissed off if they do completely forget about the 1st gen zune and do not offer any new firmware or anything like that for it.

This sucks. I still love my zune but so far there is no homebrew, no crack for the 3x3 rule, and now m$ wants to make my zune obsolete. I guess thats technology for ya.

Wow. This is rather upsetting considering I pretty much just got my 1st-gen Zune...

THIS REALLY PISSES ME OFF. I just got mine at Christmas, I hate to think that something I'm still paying for is OLD now. What the hell is wrong with the oringal Zune? I'm going to call Microsoft and see if I can get my money back or something, total BS. I doubt Microsoft will get any farther slapping another version out on the market. Thats why I bought the Zune to begin with, I thought that it was something that would last.... grr.gif

Same here, I just hope they at least give us a few more firmware updates.
There are still a few things that need to be fixed.
