Buy Zune Tunes With Microsoft Points

Prepaid cards charged up with Microsoft Points will be available at certain retailers or online stores, including Xbox Live Marketplace. Individual songs will be available to purchase for 79 Microsoft Points per track, or about 99 cents, the same cost as an iTunes song. Microsoft is hoping that Zune will distinguish itself from Apple’s iPod with Zune-to-Zune wireless music sharing and a subscription music service. A Zune Pass subscription will cost $14.99 a month, allowing users to essentially "rent" music at their own discretion from a library of “millions of songs,” according to Microsoft. Next-Gen has contacted Microsoft inquiring about any special Xbox 360-Zune interaction, but no response had been sent as of press time. The Zune and its corresponding online service will launch on November 14, 2006 in the US. Microsoft responded to Next-Gen regarding Xbox 360-Zune compatibility. It appears that Zune will interact with the Xbox 360 quite similarly to other media devices at this point in time. "You can plug your Zune device into your Xbox 360 to stream music, pictures, and video, via USB cable, to enjoy all your Zune content on the TV in your living room," wrote a Microsoft spokesperson via e-mail. "Additionally, you can connect your Windows PC to your Xbox 360 using Windows Media connect to stream your Zune content that way as well." As for transferring Xbox Live Marketplace content from the Xbox 360 to Zune, the spokesperson simply stated, "We don’t have any further details to provide on Xbox 360 and Zune integration right now."
