I've heard that XNA 3.0 is supposed to work on the Zune. First of all, does anyone know if that is true? Second, are there going to be any tutorials on this site for doing that?
XNA 3.0 is supposed to work on the Zune, which I'm pretty excited about. (See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microsoft_XNA.) I, however, do not have a Zune, so I probably won't be able to write any tutorials for it. If you or somebody else wants to write some tutorials for it (when it comes out) I'd be happy to put them on this site, though.
It appears that the Zune has a few limitations, but it looks to be pretty cool. Here's a few things that I found out about the Zune:
- The input acts like an XBox controller
- 3D isn't available on the Zune
- You'll have access to the music on the Zune - they also made it sound like they are going to make this available on the PC and XBox 360 eventually as well

The Community Technical Preview is going to be released soon - I didn't catch a date, but it sounds like before the end of May, so you'll be able to download it and play around with it soon.
The club has enough money… maybe we can get ahold of a zune
