Default Where are the new apps and games?

So, the new 64gb Zune is here, the Kin (kid) phones are here too but not a word about Zune HD Apps and Games (as usual)...Is there anybody who knows more? What was that leak inside Zune's twitter page before a week?

I don't know when the next batch will be released, but on Twitter, the Zune team did say more apps are coming soon.

Well I can definitely say that the new apps are closer with your post, than the previous post on abi asking the same question....and next time you ask - I reckon they will be closer again to release !

Seriously, MS were probably allowing a busy announcement/release schedule over late March-Early April (Mix, Keynotes, 4.5, Kin etc) to pass, then after the 64GB Zune HD is shipping via resellers and stocked in the supply chain, their marketing team will probably want more market noise by then slotting in some content updates for Zune...

That's my guess anyways.

How many app developers are working on apps for the Zune HD? The android app store grows every day. The itunes app store grows every day. As far as I know the windows mobile app collection grows every day.

Yeah but the Kin runs Silverlight apparently. Does the Zune HD run Silverlight ? Can't recall if it did....

It's a knife that cuts both ways. Facebook was delayed, so we delayed the release date until we were happy with the quality. Zune HD 64GB was early, so we got the product out there earlier than we said we would.

Cheers, Dave.

So, are the new apps and games delayed? I believe that the message inside Zune twitter was clearly speaking about a simultaneous release of firmware and new content. Are we far from the release of new games or apps? Over a month?

And it was a pleasant surprise, Dave. Thanks! I had to wait a bit to save enough money to get one, so now there's only 2 colors available...so I'll wait and see when the black and purple come back in stock (as gifts to family/friends).

I wonder if some people who wait on here with bated breath for new apps & games for their Zune don't own any other electronic device. I enjoy the few games that are available now and would love to get abunch more. I'll be one of the first people to load them when they're released. However, I've never been sitting around going "I've got nothing to do! When will my Zune have a new game?!?!". If they said "Next game will be Ninja Gaiden" then I can understand the anticipation, but when the next game could be "Vans Sk8 2," don't get all excited.

Unless they did announce games/apps coming up and I missed the announcement. If so, what are they?

No, the next release of apps and games is not delayed. There was some wording on the Twitter page that implied new apps and games would be delivered as part of the firmware update, but as I clarified - apps and games are not part of the firmware, so that was incorrect.

I can't tell you when - but the next release is not too far away.

Cheers, Dave.

Sounds good! Any hints as to perhaps one or two apps/games you're working on? I'm looking forward to it!
