Microsoft preps astrology-themed custom Zunes

MS Astrology Theme Zunes

Microsoft will try to spark interest in its newer Zunes this fall with the launch of its first themed Zune Originals set, the company has revealed at a press event attended by SAI. Where the previous custom engravings have largely been isolated efforts, the new campaign will bring a set of artwork for the players' backs themed around the zodiac signs: at least Aries, Leo and Pisces are confirmed but is implied as including the remaining nine signs.

The new patterns should be available within the next two weeks; it's not known how much Microsoft will charge for the artwork, though the company has usually charged a small but consistent premium for the laser-etched pieces above and beyond the costs of the actual players. Whether Microsoft will keep the astrological signs as permanent additions or as part of a temporary run is also an unknown.
