To play nice you’ll need a PlayStation Network ID, as well as finding the monthly subscription fees. The basic offering costs £3.99 and gets you access to genre-specific channels, while £9.99 lets you browse a catalogue of over 6 million songs.

Music Unlimited had been promised for the PSP by a Sony exec earlier this week, but it’s a surprise that it’s hitting the PSP so soon. Word is the NGP will also be loaded up with the service when it launches later this year.
