This is the v3.0 feature that I'm looking forward to most. I know, it's silly. I guess I'm just a Hexic addict.

Yep, I guess it really makes us think about getting a Zune Pass.



Also, they did a good job with the UI for the shopping experience...building on the Zune's simplicity and sleek factor.

I get that these are great features. I would be happy if I could get EReader on my Zune.

Bluetooth would have been nice too. Then I could buy a car kit.

Yes, that's correct, if you have a Zune Pass you can wirelessly download anything included in the Zune Pass, or even stream it - so basically you can have access to a few million tracks anywhere you have WiFi. Pretty slick!

Yes, the update will be free. The games are not part of the Zune Pass, the 3.0 firmware update comes with both games.

That's right, you download the 3.0 firmware update today, and any Zune will get updated.
