Sony is closing down it's Music Unlimited service in exchange for a brand new program: PlayStation Music. But Sony won't be doing it alone, as the company announced today that Sony will partner with Spotify to create the online music program.

Announced through the PS Blog, the service is coming to 41 different markets around the world, PlayStation Music will be accessed through PS4, PS3 and Xperia phones and tablets. Users will be able to link their current Spotify accounts, including Premium accounts. If you're a PS4 owner, PlayStation Music will even let you play music while you are playing your games, allowing your favorite songs to play in the background while taking on whatever game you choose. This includes listening to the free version of Spotify, with adds. 

Prior to the launch of PlayStation Music, Music Unlimited will close down in all 19 countries on March 29th. Most, but not all, of these countries are included with the 41 territories receiving the new PlayStation Music service. Starting on February 28th and going to the last day on March 29th, current memebers of Music Unlimited will receive up to 30 days of access free. 

This sounds too good to be true, but it is exciting none the less. Stay tuned to The Jesters Court for more updates as Sony releases more information on PlayStation Music.
