According to a report today from VG 24/7, Sony is looking to better integrate the PlayStation 4 with Sony Music Unlimited to better garner the benefits the cross-functionality would bring to the next-gen console.
In an interview with Pocket-Lint, Anu Kirk, director of musical services for Sony Network Entertainment, said the platform holder is looking how to utilize the Sony Music Unlimited feature of the PS4 better during gameplay.
For example, gamers could be able to choose from their own music library for in-game music.
“We're looking at ways to add more integration for gamers on that platform in the near future," Kirk said. "It would be silly for us not to look at more close integration of gaming and the Sony Music Unlimited service.”
Since the PS4 launched in November, more than 7 million hours of music has streamed using Sony Music Unlimited.
According to Kirk, the usage of the PS4 for Sony Music Unlimited exceeded Sony’s expectations.
“The business has more than doubled in subscriber growth, and we’ve sustained that momentum,” Kirk said.
The remarks, however, come just 24 hours after PlayStation vice president of marketing John Koller said that the average PS4 user spends more than twice the amount of time using the machine for games than its entertainment features.
