Spotify Meets Playstation

By on March 30, 2015 | 1 comment

Spotify-Playstation-Featured-ImageGamers, rejoice! Playstation Music has officially launched on the Playstation 4 featuring Spotify! Now you can tear up the streets of Los Santos or slay Exo Zombies while turning up to your favorite music artists!

The music streaming service ties directly into your mobile app and acts as a second navigation, allowing for better multitasking while switching tracks and keeping focused on the reticle!

To those who aren’t familiar with Spotify’s streaming service, it’s essentially Netflix, but for music. Allowing you to stream almost any studio album or new hit single at your finger tips! No ads, unlimited skips, personalized playlists, a glorious music collection to choose from, and those featured in the top charts!

This is a partnership that’ve personally been eagerly waiting for since the new consoles dropped. Having played around with the app, I can say that it’s not only functional, but offers an incredibly idealistic gaming experience.

The platform brings Spotify to PS4, PS3, and Xperia mobile devices in 41 markets around the world.

You can join the party now, and sign up for Spotify’s premium service for only $9.99 and get your first month free! | Premium – Spotify

To get thing’s started, I highly recommend checking out Tomb Raider’s Original Soundtrack streaming on Spotify, composed by Jason Graves.

Tomb-Raider-GK-MGM-WB-GraphicWarner Bros is set to join MGM and GK Films to co-produce and finance the Tomb Raider reboot film. Warner Bros has brought on Evan Daugherty to pen the film, whose work includes Divergent, Snow White and the Huntsman, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and G.I. Joe 3.

Denis O’Sullivan will oversee for GK Films, Cassidy Lange for MGM and Jon Berg for Warner Bros, as Warner Bros will be distributing the film.
