Try Sticky-ing these things... seriously, its a Need-To-Know kind of information; and he's not the only zune user wondering. - Also the thread you linked says it requires version 2.5 firmware and software... Zune recently updated to 3.0? So whats the deal?

It is sticky'd, and the insctructions for the 2.5 and 3.0 are the same.

But, if you are still confused, try this.


You should have the Games option on the menu on your zune. There will be two games pre-installed, Hexic, and Texas Hold 'Em.

To be able to put user created games on your zune, you will need to download and install Visual C# 2008 Express Edition.
http://www.microsoft.com/Express/Download/

After that is installed, download XNA Game Studio 3.0 BETA.
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en

When those are both installed, connect your zune to your computer.

Click Start, Programs, XNA Game Studio, and then XNA Device Center.

A screen will pop up, click Add new device, Zune, and then click your zune.

Now, download some games from this site and extract them (if rar'd or zip'd) and run the .sln file.

This will open Visual C# 2008, when it is open, there should be a side bar with the game files. Right click the file with the Zune icon by it and click Deploy.

Now wait until it says Deploy successful in the left.
(repeat with all games)


Then unhook your zune and try the games out!
