Sony Entertainment Network today announced the debut of the Music Unlimited service on the PlayStation Vita (PS Vita) portable entertainment system.
With a global library of 15 million licensed songs from major labels, leading independent labels and major publishers worldwide, the Music Unlimited service offers users convenient access to the entire music catalog and millions of other tracks on a wide range of mobile and in-home devices, anytime they want it.
Users of the PS Vita system can cache playlists and channels, letting them listen to music even when a 3G or Wi-Fi connection isn't available, or when they want to conserve battery life or curb data usage.
Additionally, the device's 5-inch, high-definition OLED touch screen makes it easy to navigate menus and search for music with the tap or swipe of a finger, according to a news release.
"PS Vita's incredible processing power and media capabilities enabled us to offer a powerful mobile listening entertainment experience to consumers, giving them access to the music they want wherever they are," Tim Schaaff, president of Sony Network Entertainment, said in a statement. "Adding PS Vita to Sony Entertainment Network's ecosystem gives users another choice of where and how to access their games, music and video, offering a truly personalized entertainment experience."
Debuting originally in December 2010, the Music Unlimited service is available currently in 13 countries including Australia, France, Germany and the U.K., as well as the U.S.
Users can also access the service on any PC, many Android mobile devices, and Sony Xperia handsets, as well as 2010, 2011, 2012 and future models of Sony BRAVIA HDTVs, Blu-ray Disc players, Blu-ray Disc Home Theatre Systems, as well as PlayStation 3 (PS3), PSP (PlayStationPortable), and Sony Walkman.
