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!
