Sony has announced that a new “cloud-based digital music service” is coming soon for the PlayStation 3 and the PSP, and it will be out before the end of the year. According to Joystiq, the service will be called “Music Unlimited powered by Qriocity”, and it will be a direct rival to Microsoft’s Zune Pass.
The service will be compatible with Bravia TVs, Blu-ray players, home theaters and Sony Vaios, all with one account. The music software is expected to be a subscription-based model, but no word yet on pricing structures.
The Music Unlimited program is said to access “millions of songs,” but the specifics, including which artists and companies Sony has inked deals with, are going to be announced in the future.
