Alright guys, we know how much you are looking forward to getting your hands on the Microsoft Zune. We get it. In fact, in an effort to satiate those of you who email us constantly asking for “behind-the-scenes” Zune information, you are in luck. The Gear Live crew was able to spend some time with a fully operational Zune, and we have the video footage to prove it. We walk you through the menu system and interface of the device, showing off a bunch of it’s features for you. Enjoy the video. Oh, and if you have any questions, feel free to let us know in the forums.
EDIT: Alright, we got a bit more information from Zune PR, and wanted to lay it on you, in case you were confused by anything stated in the video (or couldn’t hear it over the horrible trip hop beats). Just so we’re clear, here is the official status of Zune’s relationship to PlaysForSure: The PlaysForSure experience is designed to provide consumers with a consistent and guaranteed entertainment experience across the devices and services that are a part of the PFS ecosystem. Since Zune is a separate offering that is not part of the PlaysForSure ecosystem, Zune content is not supported on PlaysForSure devices. By the same token, Zune will work with Zune-specific content as well as non-DRM files.
