Sony Introduces New Partnership With Spotify

Playstation owners, your gaming experience is about to get a whole lot more immersive. Earlier today, Sony unveiled a new music streaming service aimed at replacing their current Music Unlimited offering. They’re calling the offering PlayStation Music, and Spotify will be an exclusive partner.

This is a pretty unique addition to gaming on a PlayStation as I’ve personally wished I could’ve created my own soundtrack while playing certain games, and now I can. All current music available on Spotify will be available on PlayStation Music, and users will have access to specially curated playlists as well. The new service will initially launch on PS4, PS3, and [...]
