Default Zune Games in Action!

There&rsquo;s definitely a lot of excitement over the upcoming Zune games that will be released later this year. I wasn&rsquo;t thrilled with the idea of adding games to the Zune but I have to admit, Microsoft has completely surprised me with the whole XNA integration. They really took what I felt would be a gimmick and made it something impressive. <a href="http://www.istartedsomething.com/">I Started Something</a> has linked a video of the gameplay in action and after seeing what the Zune is going to be capable of, I am really looking forward to this. I think this will really give people a reason to consider the Zune. Check out this awesome video! <br /><br /><embed width="432" height="364" flashvars="c=v&amp;v=a97849b2-c46d-41d3-b3d5-69060d4d95f4&amp;ifs=true&amp;fr=shared&amp;mkt=en-US" pluginspage="http://macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" name="msn_soapbox" base="http://images.video.msn.com/" quality="high" src="http://images.video.msn.com/flash/soapbox1_1.swf"></embed>

The breadth of what XNA is capable of is visualized here on this youtube video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L8K76l4Tzb0 . If these are any indication as to the capabilities of what the XNA Studio 3.0 has in store, I think we could be pleasantly surprised come next year...

Yes, I know Zune doesn't have a chip powerful enough (at the moment) to handle some of the 3D rendering, but it doesn't rule out the possibility of Zune getting one in Zune 3 (or maybe Zune 2.5?).

I find it irritating that we get games before we get a darn clock

Though, I will be less bored on public transportation now
