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.

Samsung YP-P2 gets a firmware update

Games for Zune!

  • For starters, first-gen Zunes don’t appear to be ruled out by any means, but it’s going to be dependent on the game controls. Zauri, the sample space shooter game demoed today, uses the Zunepad, thus wouldn’t work (as well) on a Zune 30. Nothing has been decided as to whether games will universally require 2nd-gen Zunes, though.
  • Use of the Zunepad in Zauri was as a trackpad and omnidirectional — it wasn’t just up / down / left / right, as in the menus.
  • Right now the system partitions a mere 16MB for storing games, although this might change.
  • Right now there isn’t a professional-grade SDK to announce; all titles should initially be done up in XNA Studio.
  • Means of distribution (i.e. games loaded through an installer, through the Zune desktop app, or through Zune Marketplace?) has not yet been decided.
  • The first beta development tools will be out this Spring.
  • There are no plans for Zune game sharing (yet), so to play with a friend wirelessly you both must have the game on your Zune.

Those were a few details from Engadget.

A good addition to the Zune.

Mobile Games + Top 5

Did I mention I got a new phone? This post brings you a review of Top 5 and mobile games on my phone!

Oh well I should update the My Stuff page.

Well I got the Nokia 6300 – Slim yet powerful and its already won a place in my heart. It does everything i wanted my old phone to do(Bluetooth, Songs, Memory Card, Good themes and Software compatibility).

6300 has bluetooth, Songs, Memory Card (128 included 2GB costs 15,000RS here[Approx 150$]), Awesome themes, Millions of games and software to download. The only bummer is the battery life and no boxed data cable(which costs 4000Rs [Approx 40$]).  Well that I can handle.

Now for the games
