Looks like Microsoft is getting more and more ambitious by the day. According to Bloomberg, they are now looking to enter the handheld gaming market.

Microsoft Corp., the world's largest software maker, will introduce video games for its Zune music player within 18 months to match features available on Apple Computer Inc.'s dominant iPod.

Peter Moore, a vice president in the company's Xbox video- game business, confirmed the plan yesterday, saying the Zune's large screen will offer a better way to play handheld games. He didn't specify what games would be offered.

I didn't think people cared much for the Zune, but if Microsoft manages to introduce some decent apps on the device, Apple might just find themselves facing serious competition. Although, I have to say, it looks like Microsoft is trying to compete with Apple, Nintendo and Sony all at the same time and depending on what they have in mind for the Zune, stretching themselves too thin may not be a very good idea. Live on the Zune would be awesome, though. Also, well-functioning and useful 360 compatibility is a must.

What do you guys think?
