PlayStation’s Spotify team up: 3rd party app dominance

PlayStation’s Spotify team up: 3rd party app dominance

In the gaming universe, things are changing. While we'll likely never reach a point where it'll be the manufacturers of hardware or the developers of software that take full control of the console ecosystem, today you can mark one up for the latter. Instead of working with their own Music Unlimited system, Sony has decided to team up with Spotify - to great effect. Today Sony not only ends their Music Unlimited system completely across all PlayStation hardware, it begins 30 days of free use of Spotify. Sony is so confident in this team-up, they're tossing out the old and giving the new away for free.

PlayStation Vue: here’s what you need to know

Sony's newest TV-based venture is PlayStation Vue, a system that works specifically on their PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 gaming devices.

Sony launches PlayStation Vue TV service in Philly, Chicago & NYC

Sony launches PlayStation Vue TV service in Philly, Chicago & NYC

In an effort to make your console more relevant to your TV experience than gaming, Sony is soft-launching PlayStation Vue. Their Internet TV service is robust, sporting 55 channels of take-it-or-leave-it TV. There are no complicated bundles — you get 55 channels with Vue’s starting point. It’s competitive with Sling TV as a streaming TV option, but might leave some wanting. The service notably lacks ESPN, a major feature for Sling TV. PlayStation Vue also costs $49.99/month for the basic package, well above Sling TV’s $20/month starting point.

Here we've got Final Fantasy Type-0 HD, a game that's been in development since mid-2012 for release on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
