Zune games look better than the DS

Yep. I found this:

Our DS’s(DS’es) are meant to play games. The Zune is meant to play music. Then why is the Zune’s games looking better than ours?

Why are these so nice looking? Ok lets push that to a side and look at the iPhone/iPod Touch. Why does it have no games? There should be games when the 3rd party apps come out but no. Surprisingly Apple have not included any game right?

At GDC 2008, Microsoft announced plans on enabling a community publishing pipeline for the Xbox 360 and Zune. Before this XNA wasn’t too popular. Ok so the Zune brand was launched as a mobile entertainment platform rather than a strictly audio platform and will continue to evolve and expand. But still! The DS should have better capabilities than the Zune!

Microsoft confirms Zune will play games by July 2008.

The Zune’s touchpad will hopefully make for a decent controller. Graphically, Zauri, the only game demoed via video, was simple in nature, but the addition of music library support could make for interesting shooter gameplay.

CES 2008 | LG | PG70 Wireless Plasma

It includes the 50-inch 50PG70 and the 60-inch 60PG70. Yes, you’ll still need to connect the power cord, but all those pesky audio-video connections can be moved to a separate AV transceiver box that networks with the panel over the 802.11n wireless standard. Judging from LG’s claims regarding its similar wireless LCDs, the box can be set up to 50 feet from the panel and going wireless doesn’t impact picture or sound quality. Unlike those LCDs and Samsung’s units, however, the box on the PG70 series is optional (price TBD), so you can wait to invest in wireless.

These sets will carry THX Display certification, for what that’s worth, when they ship in the third quarter of 2008–pricing was not disclosed at press time. Other notable improvements include an ISF mode that has a user-accessible color temperature adjustment with 10 separate grayscale points, which should help calibrators improve color accuracy.
