Microsoft Zune games in 2008

Microsoft confirmed its going to launch games for the Zune player but it will take until July 2008 before we'll see the first ones.
This need for adaptation comes from Zune sales dropping in the music player market. In its first week of launch, Microsoft sold $4 billion, landing it in second place. Zune sales dropped to fifth place the following week.

If Microsoft offers popular games for the Zune, while allowing for wireless gaming, it will throw the Zune into the competitive market with devices such as Sony's PSP, and Nintendo's DS. Also, with the device's 3-inch display, it is already adequate to handle gaming.

Adding video games is just one of the features Microsoft plans on adding to the Zune. The company announced that it wanted to add wireless video sharing and possibly fuse the device with a phone, following Apple's new gadget, the iPhone.
