Soundtrack that mountainous assassination mission with Death Grips or perhaps go stealth in-game and jumping off Parisian roofs to some Miles Davis, or kicking ball at Camp Nou to Japandroids. PlayStation users, now you can! Spotify and Sony Network Entertainment International have teamed up and will launch an exclusive music experience on PlayStation Music, making it easier for ever for gamers to enjoy their favourite tracks whilst playing their favourite games. Now, you're in charge of the soundtrack.
Soundtrack your game. With background listening on the PlayStation 4 system, you can soundtrack your gaming sessions with your favourite tracks. You might die a few times at the hands (or claws) of terrifying monsters or men, so why not do it to the music of your choice?
On-demand music for everyone. Enjoy all of your favourite tunes on-demand. Pick one of your favourites from Your Music or Browse to find the perfect playlist for every mood and moment. There's even gonna be a set of new gaming playlists for you.
No need to pause. Spotify Connect lets you skip tracks or turn up the music using your mobile device or tablet, without ever having to interrupt your gaming experience.
“Music has always been a big part of gaming,” says Gustav Söderström, Chief Product Officer at Spotify. “I remember playing computer games like Quake and Counter-Strike with my favourite tunes on in the background - taking the experience to a whole new level. With today’s launch, we’re bringing back that magic of gaming with music - all in a beautifully designed and smooth experience that looks great on the big screen.”
“PlayStation Network is the premier destination for digital entertainment and we’re excited that millions of users around the world can now enjoy the most compelling music service on their PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 consoles,” said John Kodera, President, Sony Network Entertainment International. “With Spotify as the foundation of PlayStation Music, we’ll continue to evolve the service to deliver the best entertainment experience that gamers have come to expect from PlayStation Network.”
Spotify on PlayStation Music will roll out to all Spotify users on PS4 and PS3 today and will also become available on Xperia smartphones and tablets.
