Sony Music Unlimited on its way to NGP, PSP and Xperia Play

PS3 music service branching out

Music streaming offering set to launch across number of platforms.

Sony has confirmed that its Music Unlimited streaming service, currently sitting pretty on the PS3, will be available on the PSP “in a matter of weeks,” with Xperia Play and NGP compatibility to follow later this year.

The news comes from Sony Network Entertainment’s Shawn Layden, who told Eurogamer, “The heart of the offering here is that with the one account you can access this music on your TV, your PS3, your laptop, your Blu-ray player, and have your music follow you wherever you go.”

The service currently costs £3.99 a month for a basic plan, which gives you access to slected music channels, while a beefed-up premium package, with access to six million streaming tracks, costs £9.99.

Sony already faces stiff competition from Spotify, which is already available for Android and therefore the Xperia Play. Amazon’s new Cloud Player service also promises to give it a run for its money.
