PlayStation meets Spotify

Spotify logoSony has just introduced a new music destination called PlayStation Music, with Spotify as the exclusive partner.

Sony has partnered with Spotify to bring its digital music service to PlayStation Network this spring in 41 markets around the world.

PlayStation Network users will be able to link their accounts to Spotify, making it easy to sign-up with their existing ID and subscribe to Spotify’s Premium service. They can also use Spotify while playing games on PS4, enabling them to soundtrack their gaming sessions with their favorite songs in the background.

The new service will launch initially on PS4 and PS3, as well as Xperia smartphones and tablets.

Prior to the launch of Spotify on PlayStation Music, the Music Unlimited service will close in all 19 countries on March 29, 2015. Nearly all of these countries will be among the 41 markets where PlayStation Music featuring Spotify will be available at launch, including the U.S., Canada, Mexico and Brazil. From February 28, 2015, Music Unlimited users with active subscriptions will receive free access to Music Unlimited through March 29, 2015.

Sony Computer Entertainment (SCE) and Sony Network Entertainment International (SNEI) also announced today hat PlayStation Network (PSNSM) will be the premium entertainment service brand which encompasses games, TV, video and music services. "Video Unlimited" and "Music Unlimited," Sony's digital video and music services currently offered on Sony Entertainment Network (SEN), will become part of PlayStation Network, and rebranded as PlayStation Video (PS Video) and PlayStation Music (PS Music) respectively.

"We are very excited to offer our wide array of network services including games, TV, videos and music, under the PlayStation brand," said Andrew House, President and Group CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. and Group Executive in charge of the Network Entertainment Business. "We look forward to bringing even more compelling experiences, and an unparalleled breadth and quality of digital entertainment services and content to our customers."

As a unified service platform, PlayStation Network will continue to deliver entertainment experiences through PlayStation Store (PS Store), gaming services such as PlayStation Plus (PS Plus), PlayStation Now (PS Now), and entertainment services including PlayStation Vue (PS Vue).
