J Allard Cool On Game Plans For Zune
Posted by XanTium | October 4 17:20 EST | News Category: Xbox360
From gamasutra.com:

Speaking to news agency Reuters, Allard was asked what the outlook was for Zune and games, to which he was generally dismissive, saying; "Thus far, the market really hasn't proven out that it is a great scenario. Customer satisfaction with what has been done isn't that high."

"I love games and maybe for someone with a 40-minute commute, it might be an interesting scenario," said Allard. Expanding on his comments of negative customers satisfaction he added: "The other challenge is with the platform. The games that you bought in your fifth generation don't run with your sixth generation. ... The rate of innovation, turnover, and variety of form factors makes it a tricky proposition.

"That said, we have a lot of flexibility and a lot of magical software," continued Allard. "What we've done with XNA is an incredibly portable environment designed to abstract some of the hardware differences. We'll see where that takes us. We're always thinking, but the Zune isn't playing Halo 3 anytime soon."

Well Duh, just need small easy innovative games, they won't make that much if any money on them. But it's a good start.
