The Zune game action is heating up and talk of a portable Zune game device now circles around the when and not the if. Lot’s of folks are talking about what they want to see Microsoft do with their game player and many are making comparisons to existing players. There are existing game players on the market that although fall short in some way or another have a huge fan base for each player respectively and are sure to influence the design of the Zune game player. Playing games on a current model Zune player will be limited to the type of games that can be played because of the control pad and button layout of the Zune.
Microsoft faces stiff competition in the gaming market and key players such as Sony and Nintendo don’t plan on giving up much of their market. The PS3 may not be doing well but the Sony PSP is in fact a popular device and has sold a a substantial number of units since release. The Nintendo DS is also a very popular game device and game play on the DS is said to be as much fun or more than any other player on the market. Many of our current Zune fans are also Nintendo DS owners and they love their games. Some have hoped to find some of their favorite Nintendo DS Games reviewed here at ZuneMAX.com but we reserve this space for consoles only. If you want to find Nintendo DS game reviews you will need to drop by DSBrowse and check out their selection of fresh game reviews.
If Microsoft wants the Zune game player to be a success they will need to take the best features from the Nintendo DS and the Sony PSP and incorporate them into the Zune game device or come up with something even better using ideas and experience from lessons learned by competitors. The weaknesses in each player should be addressed and by doing so Microsoft should be able to wow us with the next generation portable game player from Zune.
All this Zune music talk has made a few of us wish we made it to more concerts. I know I myself have been checking over the local music scene and decided it was time for some road trips to new concert venues. I think I need to do a bit of traveling in order to get out and see the world and music is a great way to do so. I though about lining up some concerts in different places and then road tripping in between them all. The drive from one concert to another could be an adventure in itself and of course I’d have my Zune with me to entertain as I travel. I have considered something like this as a Zunecast road trip and I’ll take my camcorder with me and try to score some artist interviews for the Zune fans in the forums.
Of course it would be nice to hit every show around here but I simply can’t. I’m dreaming to think I can make it to even half the great concerts and shows around us but it’s nice to dream isn’t it? While I’m dreaming I may as well dream big and plan some trips to other countries while I’m at it. I would love to find concerts in Britain or somewhere in Europe. I understand German concerts are huge and the fans really enjoy themselves. A good Gig and Concert Guide helps and of course we found one. When I’m ready for my invasion of England I’ll know where to find a listing of music concerts and shows and I’ll take my Zune with me.
For musicians in Britain looking for some added exposure to their local music scene I suggest you drop in and list your music event with BritEvents.com and get some more people to your show.

Featuring new and unsigned artists is our favorite thing about Zune and music blogging and supplying you with as much new music as we can is our goal each day. We love to have so many Zune fans enjoying their new mp3 player and we want everyone to spend more time listening to music and less time doing silly things like driving cars and working. So we try to feature as much music from as many obscure bands and musicians as we can for your enjoyment.
Exposure to new musicians has been the best part of running ZuneMAX and access to great music has never been easier now that people continue to suggest new sites for us. You can find just about any type of music genre amongst the unsigned artists at Unsigned.com including Dance Artists and more. For even more great music from unsigned artists you should check them out for yourself.
Zune MAX is all about the Zune and music and we’ve been featuring tons of new artists for our Zune fans around the world. Someone suggested to me I take a look at a hot new artist in one Mr. Chris Brown. According to IdolMe.com Chris Brown has been working in the music industry since the young age of 16 and he is a multi talented young man. He not only was the first male solo artist to have a hit single debut at the top of the Billboard charts but he also produces work for other top artists in the music industry such as Bow Wow and Jermaine Dupri.
Chris has been busy on a nationwide tour that has sold millions tickets and brought him to major cities across America and around the world to perform his top hits like “Run It”, â€œGimme That, Yoâ€ (Excuse Me Miss), and of course his latest smash hit â€œSay Goodbyeâ€. Chris is a straight up lady killer and very popular with the girls. His music is featured just about all over the place and you find Chris Brown mp3 downloads and Chris Brown ringtones online for your cell phone.
It looks like Chris Brown is a serious artist with a bright future in the music industry and someone to watch out for.
Chris is being compared to some of the top artists in the industry including Usher, Tevin Campbell and even Michael Jackson. Chris is very well known for his own unique style and flavor and a booming sound that has made him a rising international hip hop star.
Today is the last day of 2006 and wow has it been a wild year for me and this website. When I first found out about the Zune I had no idea how much it would change the rest of my year. Since July 11th I have been here at this site almost every day working with some of the best people online to build the greatest Zune community we can and I believe we have done an incredible job in such a short time.
Our site is alive and active with loads of very talented Zune fans. We have musicians and artists of all mediums present with a desire to share their work with Zune users everywhere. Our dedicated community leaders are busy each day helping out new Zune users with tips and suggestions on working with the Zune and more. Without them our site would be a mess and my thanks goes out to them and everyone who has helped out over these past few months.
The response to Zune by the press has been mixed but Zune users and members of our forum are sure happy with their Zune players and so am I. MAX may have some issues to work out yet but I feel confident Microsoft has heard the message and the fixes for Zune troubles are on the way.
I’m most excited about what we’ll see from the Zune community in 2007 as we respond to our new media players with more personalization and insight into our Zune experiences. I love the creative output we’ve seen in things like the Zune Wallpaper contests and the selection of new music for Zune fans is great. I think my favorite part of my first mp3 player has been the incredible amount and diversity of new music Zune fans have shared with me and my Zune.
I look forward to having some serious fun this year with MAX here at ZuneMAX.com and I invite you all to do the same. Please enjoy our site and share your thoughts on the Zune and more with your new friends at the Social.
There has been quite a lot of activity on out site over the past couple weeks and the fastest growing sections of our site are the live chat rooms and of course the message boards. We now have over 1100 members in the Zune forums and many of them are choosing to use the chat rooms to ask questions about their Zune players. We have had a great response in helping people figure out how to use their Zune devices in the chatrooms and we’re excited about what we can do with them.
We do get a lot of people that just want to talk in but our service is more about the Zune. For people looking for a more general chat room I would suggest looking at sites like Pictari which offers a variety of chat room services. It’s not the same as your MSN or AIM chats but they offer quite a bit of chatting if you so desire. Stop by and strike up a conversation with total stranger today. You might just make a new friend in the process.
