Video games on Zune by 2008


Within 18 months Microsoft will introduce gaming to the Zune in order to compete with the game capable iPod.

From Bloomberg: “Zune, introduced in November, has failed to take market share from Apple’s iPod, partly because the device lacks iPod features such as games and TV programs, said Michael Gartenberg, an analyst at JupiterResearch.”

So even if Microsoft does add gaming and wireless video sharing to the Zune, it’s still not the cultural icon that the iPod so is. Will the Zune ever outrun the iPod? When will Microsoft drop the Zune phone is the question…
