Sorry, I should mention that PlayStation Plus members can get the Music Unlimited subscription for only $42 a year. *barf*

Kinda glad I didn't preorder one, then. We use our PS3 to play our music libraries and audio CDs all the time. Sort of need the replacement to do so as well.

Yeah, there's no way I'll be subscribing to this.

Guess I'll just have to do without music on my PS4.

Sony wtf are you doing. $60 to stream music you probably already own is bullshit.

I hardly ever put my music in my PS3 but the option to play background music while playing games was tempting.

I thought PS2 Sony was the Best Sony lol.


Also nope, not going to pay $42-$60 for this but then again I probably wouldn't have used the feature even if it was free. Haha =P

This isn't that big of a deal. If you wanna listen to music while you game, you can use other speakers or just put in earbuds.

Still, this does seem a little authoritarian on Sony's part, which is a little disappointing. Oh well. Even paying for PS Plus and this music subscription, it costs less to get a PS4 than it does to pay for the base price of the XBO.

I never really understood the music services on console. Does anyone use that sort of thing?

Nope Lydia, I just game on my PS3 with some occasional Netflix. I have devices for my music that doesn't require me to pay for the service. Like Pandora.

I thought the PS4 was a games console, why does this matter, at all?
