E3 2012: Microsoft shows off Xbox Music

59 second read


It looks like the Xbox – and Windows 8 PC’s, tablets and phones – will soon be getting a music streaming service not unlike Pandora and Spotify.

It’s the music service Microsoft  has always wanted to build, says Yusuf Mehdi, Xbox’s head of marketing. According to him, the service will allow you to select from millions of songs and play them right from your Xbox. Looks like the “Zune” name is dead, then.

The question is…will it be available in South Africa?

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
