Xbox Music announced – comes with 30 million songs

By on

E3 2012: Coming soon to Xbox is its brand new music service that will replace Zune. Dubbed (in a very unoriginal fashion) “Xbox Music”, Microsoft is claiming that this is the music service that they “always wanted” to develop – and this will be available on Xbox 360, Windows 8 computers and on Windows Phone.

Microsoft have said that it will come with 30 million songs – around double the songs on Spotify and Rdio. So, either attaching the “Xbox” name means you get more songs, or they did a lot of negotiations to get that.

We’re not sure if you’ll still be able to buy songs off the service, like the Zune Marketplace, or will it go streaming only?

More soon.
