Microsoft have launched the next generation of their media player Zune. Available in the Fall, the Zune HD offers owners hybrid digital radio, high-definition (HD) video output capabilities and the usual media management. The big update seems to be how they’re connecting the Zune service with Microsoft’s Xbox environment. The press release reads:

Zune will be a premium partner in the Xbox LIVE Video Marketplace, bringing an exciting catalog of TV and film to the platform. Zune will occupy the first slot within the Xbox user interface in the Xbox LIVE Video Marketplace, exposing the Zune brand experience to millions of new consumers for the first time. At the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) next week, attendees will see firsthand how Zune integrates into Xbox LIVE to create a game-changing entertainment experience.

We’ll see whether this move really is game-changing or just a rush for the Xbox user-base later this year.
