Spotify to Dance into PlayStation Network
PlayStation owners with a fondness with Spotify should be thrilled with the news that the music streaming service is coming to the PlayStation Network.
On the PlayStation Blog, Sony has announced it's realized that music is a pretty essential part of life for most of its game lovers, and that it therefore wanted to implement music onto its consoles in some way. You will be able to link your PlayStation Network account to your Spotify account to enjoy all the premium benefits you may already have and, if you don't have a premium Spotify account, you will be still be able to listen to the music you want... you'll just have to do it with ads.
Sony will be closing down its Music Unlimited service in lieu of implementing this new Spotify service. However, if you have a Music Unlimited subscription, you will be able to get up to 30 days of Spotify premium free. The entire point of this is to be able to listen to music while you play games, which is pretty awesome. However, the best part is that you'll be able to stream music while you're playing games. Yeah, you read that right; Spotify on the PlayStation 4 will allow you to listen to whatever music you please in the background while you play your favorite titles.
Spotify has an enormous library to choose from including 30 million songs and 1.5 billion playlists, so get your ears ready for Feb. 28 when the feature will launch.
