There are many happy Zune owners right about now. At GDC last week Microsoft announced that XNA Game Studios games can now also be made for the Zune. If you didn't know, XNA is a game development toolkit available to "do it yourself" enthusiasts for about $99 / year. You don't need to create your own games, simply take advantage of XNA games created by the user base. The XNA team also made some cool announcements about Xbox LIVE community games. I got all the good dirt- take a look.

    Games on the Zune make perfect sense as those on the go for work and or play would most likely put such a feature to good use. The idea that the community can use the XNA platform to create and publish content for everyone is even better still. Looking forward to this for both the 360 and the Zune, as this seems like a natural progression for the gaming medium.

    I'm extremely happy that Microsoft added games functionality to the Zune, but I'm still hoping for a full-fledged portable Xbox...

    Hey, I'd just like to point out that it's a Creator's Club subscription that costs $100 a year- XNA Game Studio 2.0 by itself is free, and you don't need a Creator's Club subscription to create PC and Zune games (or so they say about the Zune), only 360 games.

    cool! It's great advantage over competitors.

    (But still - imho for games and videos the form-factor of PSP - screen in the center and control on the both sides - is more preferable)

    It should be remembered, Zune is first the media player, playing games on it is just a cool addition.
