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?
