Zune HD Promo Video Offers Quick Peek at Hardware's 3D Gaming Capabilities

As the Zune HD launch looms ever closer, a smorgasbord of purported launch videos have offered up what appears to be the best demonstration yet of the sleek, sexy portable's 3D gaming capabilities.


The 3D gaming example, Forza 3, debuts at about the 30 second mark in the video above. It's a fleeting glimpse, but it's solid evidence nevertheless.

For authenticity's sake, we tell you that Microsoft PR reportedly asked the leak's originator, Buy TV, to take the videos down, but not before brigands at sites like Neowin were able to upload them to YouTube, where they spread like a New York Times homepage virus.

microsoft really dropped the ball on this one. they had over 2 years to make a better ipod touch and this is all they could come up with? slap an oled screen with lower res display and hd radio?? not only that, the ui looks awful... why use text (that's so 2001 ipod). apple moved to icons so you can launch 20 apps from the home screen. they could've beaten apple to the punch with a built-in camera, come up with a design that doesn't look like a cheap chinese knock-off, and added a d-pad for a truly great gaming experience. but in true microsoft fashion, they've created yet another wannabe product and it shows. i know it's microsoft's place in the market to follow others, but it still boggles my mind that with all that talent and money, they can't innovate themselves out of a paper bag.
