Zune HD promo videos available, 3D gaming revealed

BuyTV has posted several promotional videos of the new Zune HD which goes on sale next Tuesday, September 15.

In one of the videos, named "portable perfection", it's clear that the Zune HD will have 3D gaming capabilities as it appears mid-way through the commercial that a car game, most likely Burnout, is running on the Zune HD. There's more videos included that demonstrate overviews of the car dock, HD radio, Xbox integration, Zune HD video and AV dock.

Microsoft is planning a Zune software update on the same day that it will release the new Zune HD. It's expected that the latest update will include more HD video options and an apps marketplace. Zune HD applications were confirmed by a Microsoft official in late August. Last month Microsoft company officials also confirmed that current Zune models, the Zune 8, 16, 80, and 120, have all been discontinued and that the Zune HD will be the only Zune device manufactured. Prices for the Zune HD are currently $219.99 for the 16GB model and $289.99 for the 32GB variant.

Although Microsoft originally planned to release the Zune HD internationally later this year, company officials confirmed this week that there are no plans right now to offer the Zune HD in markets outside the US.
