PSP and Xperia Play Getting Streaming Music Service

Recent-PSP-game-releases.jpg

The PSP may be in the twilight of its life, but it hasn't been put out on the ice floe just yet, as it has been revealed that both the PSP and the Xperia Play will be getting the Music Unlimited service. Sony Network Entertainment VP Shawn Layden told Eurogamer that the PSP will have access in the coming weeks (for the UK, no word on a North American release just yet), while phones running Android will hop on board "later this year." As one might expect, the forthcoming NGP will also enjoy the bounty of Music Unlimited, though whether the system will be pre-loaded with the service has not been disclosed.

Personally, I'm not terribly thrilled with the concept (especially on the PSP), but offering Music Unlimited on Android-capable phones seems like a decent idea, especially as Google and Co. maintain their siege of Apple's portable market. Still, it will be interesting to see if users warm to the idea of a subscription based plan -- Music Unlimited offers either $3.99 for Basic or $9.99 for Premium; details can be found by following the provided link -- as opposed to the iTunes-style system of paying for downloadable tracks.

What do you think, gamers? Have you used Music Unlimited, and if so, what are your impressions of the service? Do you think this is a wise move on Sony's part? Share your thoughts below!

I actually jumped on board with their Qriocity music service, which is what it's called. They added it in one of their PSP version updates but it's not yet officially downloadable. So I thought I'd give the 30day trial a run on the PS3 and I wasn't entire sure about it at 1st, but now I'm completely addicted to it. I work in an office so I love that I'm free to pull up nearly any song or album I want to listen to during my long work day.

When it comes to the PSP it will be nice to know that I can take my subscription on the go with me and it's not just confined to my PC or my PS3. Although for the PSP obviously it's only gonna be there if the WiFi is :/ If NGP supports it with their 3G service that would be just fine with me.
