Spotify + Playstation = PlayStation Music

Spotify is teaming up with Sony to create a brand new music streaming service in the form of PlayStation Music, it has been announced today.

PlayStation Music will be replacing Sony’s existing Music Unlimited service, which will close on 29 March. No launch date has been set for PlayStation Music, but we imagine the two dates are likely to coincide.

On the PlayStation Blog today, Sony have said the service will roll out across the PlayStation Network, including PS4 PS3, and Xperia tablets and smartphones.

Existing users of Spotify will be able to link their PlayStation accounts to access their existing playlists, and PS4 gamers will be able to listen to their own playlists in the background whilst playing music. Pretty cool, eh?

More details are due to be revealed by Sony closer to launch.
