My Zune came with 5 Zune games. I've seen more
games on places like Zune boards. Where can I find
more official and safe Zune games?
Sorry, but the 5 games you have are the only supported Zune games
published by Microsoft - Hexic, Texas Hold 'Em, Sudoku, Space Battle
support on older Zunes (anything before the Zune HD) is limited.
There is no easy way to install any third party developed games on your
are many unofficial Zune games available on various forums like Zune
boards that you can download and install on your Zune. But
beware! These games are created by hobbyists and tend to be of low
My personal experience is that they hang and crash the Zune frequently.
I also downloaded a virus once! Thanksfully, I was running anti-virus
software that caught it before my PC was infected.
if you have a Zune HD, the gaming story is quite the
opposite. The Zune HD supports installation of games from the Zune
Marketplace. With the Zune HD release, seven games are already
published. These games are available for the Zune HD only. More games
will continue to be added regularly.
These games are of high quality and support touch which adds
another dimension to game play. The Zune HD hardware is capable of
runnng 3D games. So we might see some of those in the future.
The Zune HD
is the Zune to own if you are serious about gaming.
