PlayStation Network Getting Music Unlimited Subscription Service

No Comment 20 Views

The really interesting thing about Sony’s newly announced Music Unlimited, powered by Qriocity, a cloud-based digital music service, which will be coming to PlayStation 3 later this year is the fact that you can access and share the music on all of your Internet-connected Sony devices.

The service will give you access to millions of songs that are stored and synchronised through the cloud and can be accessed via PS3, BRAVIA TVs, Blu-ray Disc players, Blu-ray Home Theatre systems and VAIO computers, with one single account and without the need to manage digital files.

When, where and how much? That’s all still to be determined. But they had to make some big splash today as Apple had a big press conference and Amazon is in the subscription-based streaming-old-TV episodes hunt. Everyone is getting in on streaming media and as far as I’m concerned, it’s just going to overly fragment the market.

For gaming machines alone there’s Zune, Music Unlimited and...oh wait, Nintendo has yet to announce a streaming music service. I bet that won’t be a long wait. Or will they not jump in where the others already have? They don’t really have a great platform, home or portable, for music. Sure, the DSi has stereo sound, but the DS was never really positioned as a multimedia device, the Wii isn’t really positioned as a multimedia home console even though there is some video available...in Japan...
