Sony and Spotify Team Up to Create PlayStation Music

Bye-bye Music Unlimited. The music service will leave us on March 29, and be replaced by a whole new service called PlayStation Music. Sony has partnered with Spotify to create this new service that will launch this spring in 41 markets around the world.

PlayStation Music can link to your Spotify account, making it real easy to enjoy more than 30 million songs and 1.5 billion playlists. The best part is you can play all that music while playing your games on PS4. Now, PlayStation Music will launch on PS3, but you still won’t be able to play music while playing games. No launch date has been offered, nor do we know if PlayStation Music can be used without a Spotify account.

PlayStation Music will also launch on Xperia smartphones and tablets, allowing you to take your favorite music anywhere. No word on if PlayStation Music will come to PS Vita.

Music Unlimited will shut down March 29, as stated above. However, Sony isn’t just ending the service without showing any appreciation for loyal users. From February 28, Music Unlimited users with active subscriptions will receive 30 days of free access through March 29. It may not be a trial for the new PlayStation Music, but it’s a really nice gesture from Sony.
