Zune to support games by '08

So says Bloomberg.

Microsoft will introduce videogame content to the Zune media player within 18 months, according to a new report.

The device, which is compatible with the Xbox 360, will be used for Microsoft's first serious entry into handheld gaming, where it will challenge the dominance of rival products from Nintendo and Sony.

According to a report on Bloomberg.com, corporate vice president of marketing and publishing for Microsoft, Peter Moore, revealed at CES this week that gaming for Zune is on the way, with the media player's large screen considered one of the unique selling points of the device.
