Microsoft Hints At Zune Games Content
Posted by XanTium | December 20 20:58 EST
From gamasutra.com: [QUOTE] Xbox European boss Chris Lewis has admitted for the first time that Microsoft is considering games content for the recently released portable multimedia player Zune.
Speaking to consumer website Total Video Games, Lewis stated, "You can already plug your Zune device into your Xbox 360 to stream music, pictures and video content. Looking ahead, the vision for connected entertainment provides a number of consumer scenarios and with our heritage in Xbox and Games For Windows, gaming is certainly something we're considering for the device."

The limiting factor for games is going to be the lack of buttons on the Zune to use as a controller. So figure that any games for it will be either really basic Atari type games with better graphics, or rpg's and quiz games that don't really need complicated controller input. There's always the ability to turn the Zune into a $250 VMU for the 360. Though i doubt anyone will buy one just for that use.
