Sony today revealed PlayStation Music, a new Spotify-powered music service coming to PlayStation 3, 4 and “Xperia smartphones and tablets” this spring. The service will outright replace Music Unlimited, the service that Sony previously implemented across devices, powered by its own enormous music catalog. The news marks the first time Spotify has come to any game console, and is a major coup for Sony’s PlayStation group in the battle for major home entertainment apps on game consoles (Xbox One notoriously got HBO Go first).
Excellent news. I’ve always wanted something like this, but wasn’t willing to sign up for another service when I already use Spotify for streaming.
Shazam has announced a new experience that provides a more immersive music discovery and uninterrupted listening experience for users. The update revamps Shazam’s mobile apps and launches a new Shazam.com, which includes: a new app experience, music player, Spotify integration, Hall of Fame and Shazam Counts.
You can now download your entire tag history over at shazam.com, which is great news for data nerds.
Today’s nostalgia-filled music recommendation: the title song to The Secret of Monkey Island. So good.
The title says it all, really.
I don’t usually post top N –or, in this case, bottom N– lists, but this one is legitimately hilarious.
There wasn’t really any contest: the original soundtrack for Supergiant Games’ Bastion (by Darren Korb) is excellent. If you haven’t heard Setting Sail, Coming Home, you’re missing out.
