Reaching out to 41 key markets throughout the world, your PlayStation console will now allow gamers to play music without a subscription to Sony’s older Music Unlimited service with “PlayStation Music”.
Developed as a partnership with Spotify, PlayStation Music will allow users to link up their PlayStation Network accounts with Spotify to enjoy music on Sony’s best-selling consoles, and according to Sony’s PlayStation.Blog, features won’t be much different than Music Unlimited had to offer.
You can also use Spotify while playing games on PS4, enabling you to soundtrack your gaming sessions with your favorite songs in the background. Want something heavy and rocking for an intense Destiny Raid? How about some old school hip hop while taking the field in Madden NFL? With more than 30 million songs and 1.5 billion playlists, Spotify on PlayStation Music has it covered. As we get closer to launch we look forward to telling you about some of the other great features that will be available exclusively through Spotify on PlayStation Music.
Of course this service isn’t limited to just the PlayStation 4, as the PS3, Xperia phones and Xperia tablets will continue to synchronize with Sony’s music services no matter which name and format they run by. As a recourse to this change in service, Sony’s former Music Unlimited service will close on March 29th, 2015 in all 19 countries which it is available. If you have an active Music Unlimited subscription, your last 30 days will come free during the transition through the closing date.
