GameStop Logo, Zune There is a buzz all around that GameStop has decided to pull off Microsoft Zune from its stores. Insufficient demands is said to be the reason behind taking such a decision by GameStop.

As quoted by CrunchGear, a GameStop spokesperson said, “We have decided to exit the Zune category because it just did not have the appeal we had anticipated. It (also) did not fit with our product mix.”

Though Zunes are out of the GameStop stores but the company will continue selling Microsoft’s media player online till stocks exist.

Microsoft has sold about 2 million Zune players since its launch in 2006. Last year Microsoft introduced the new Zune players featuring flash memory of 4GB and 8GB.

Though GameStop has stopped selling Zunes, other retailers such as Amazon.com, Wal-mart, and Best Buy will continue offering these media players from Microsoft.
