It has been 2 months since the major Zune 3.0 update and couple of new devices were released. Today Microsoft released the Zune 3.1 update that adds 3 new games and makes some stability and performance improvements. Also, they should be announcing a small price cut on the Zune tomorrow in time for the holidays.

The three new games for the Zune are Space Battle, SuDoKu, and Checkers. They also added multiplayer enhancements to the Texas Hold'Em game, added a new "Like Minded Listeners" feature, and eliminated some of the lag sometimes seen in the Zune hardware. The great thing about the Zune is that even the first generation devices are upgradeable to the latest firmware.

The new price cuts apply only to the flash-based models with the 4GB dropping US$99.99 from US$129.99, the 8GB model dropping to US$139.99 from US$149.99, and the 16GB dropping to US$179.99 from US$199.99. Accessory prices will also be reduced. There are no price drops for the hard drive based Zune models.
