Default Games coming to Zune...Whaa?

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.engadget.com/2008/02/20/microsoft-announces-games-for-zune-via-xna-studio/' target='_blank'>http://www.engadget.com/2008/02/20/...via-xna-studio/</a><br /><br /></div><img border="1" alt="" src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/500/zt/auto/1203548754.usr495.jpg" /><br /><br />It's not like we haven't <a target="_blank" href="http://www.zunethoughts.com/news/show/568">seen</a> <a target="_blank" href="http://www.zunethoughts.com/news/show/661">this</a> <a target="_blank" href="http://zunethoughts.com/news/show/779">coming</a>, but now Microsoft has made it official: XNA games are coming to Zune!<br /><br />&quot;<em>Details are sparse at this point, but it looks like it's going to be second gen Zunes only, since it was specifically mentioned that it'd take advantage of the touchpad controls.</em>&quot;<br /><br />What's cool is that it appears that the games will be using Microsoft's community-friendly XNA framework, which from my limited tests has been a blast to play with. It's incredibly newbie friendly, and tutorials exist all over the web. I can't wait for this to come to fruition.
