Xbox Music Kicks Zune While It’s Down – Takes Over their WebsiteOctober 19, 2012 No Comments
By now we all now that Zune has been taken over by Xbox Music. Even though recently we found out that Windows Phone 7.x will not be making the switch to the new platform and staying with the now extinct Zune service. Microsoft is going ahead with Xbox Music everywhere else.
Now the next hit to Zune is the fact that Zune.net is now dead as it just redirects to Xbox Music on the Xbox.com website.
