Zune Going to out sell Ipod this Holiday season?

16 11 2006

(Courtesy of a Google Image Search)

Alright here is what I think about this whole issue. It depends what people are looking for at what price. The Zune holds video,music, has a built in radio tuner and wi-fi capability*. The price point of the Zune is 250 dollars (not sure for how much storage*) Now an Ipod Video sells for around 350 dollars (I think base storage is a little more storage than Zune, not sure), If you buy music from the Itunes Music Store, it comes in a protected format so it cannot be used for any other device except if you burn it to a disk which gets kind of annoying after the first disk or two. But the Music Store supposedly is one of the biggest if not the biggest online music stores around. So I guess we are going to have to wait and see this holiday season, though a nice thing about Zune is since the dash update it is very compatible with the 360 (wi-fi). So thats my take on it, wait and see.

Is Gears stealing the spotlight this week?

12 11 2006

Over the past week many great titles have been released. These titles are Gears Of War,Call of Duty 3, Tony Hawk’s Project 8 and Viva Pinata.(sorry if I missed any) Of all these titles, Gears is said to have been the most popular. I feel as though the other games released this week arent recieving as much attention as they should be. Gears is a great game, dont get me wrong but please be sure to check out the other titles that also released this past week.
