Across the board price cut for the Zunes
Yes, you read it right. Just when you thought good deals are losing foot these days, surprise surprise. The Zunes just got cheaper. Across the board their price cuts from about $20-$30 for their 8 and 16 GB models. Good news for parents who would want MP3 players as gifts for their kids this Christmas. I hope Apple and other manufacturers follow this. The big capacity Zunes, however, same price.
Here’s a quick brush of the Zune prices:
Zune 4GB – $99.99
Zune 8GB – $139.99
Zune 16GB – $179.99
Zune also announced a new firmware upgrade that comes with four free games. Zune firmware 3.1 comes with checkers, Sudoku, Space Battle and the multi-player version of Texas Hold ‘Em. The firmware also updates Zune’s GUI making it a little easy to navigate. A better Zune stability and performance is what this new firmware upgrade is about, thanks Microsoft.
