The new music service will be dubbed as "PlayStation Music" and will roll out in 41 markets on Spring.

Additionally, it will initially launch on PS4, PS3, and Xperia smartphones and tablets.

PlayStation Network users can now enjoy the convenience of linking accounts to Spotify. The great feature of this integration of both two companies is the ability to play soundtrack in background while playing games.
