In case you wondered why there’s a newsflash on the US Xbox site about a new music player called Zune:

It’s MS’ new portable media player, supposed to be a direct competitor to Apple’s iPod.
It’s strange to put that up in a newsflash on the Xbox site given that there is absolutely no reference to Xbox in the newsflash. It’s just a standard document for public distribution about a new product.

Here a quick overview:

  • New portable media (music/video) player.
  • So far, available only in US, 30GB, around 250USD, 3 colors including brown.
  • Not compatible with any MS service nor Windows Media Player;
    – requires own software and downloads from own Web Site (no other online shops) and besides that
    – only option to get music onto it is own file copying.
  • Despite the missing fact in the newsflash, it CAN be connected with the Xbox 360 and play its playlists on your console.
