Sony announces PSN music service, Qriocity, in Berlin

Wednesday, 1st September 2010 17:09 GMT By Johnny Cullen


Sony’s announced a brand new cloud-streaming music service for PlayStation Network, known as Qriocity.

The announcement was made at the IFA conference in Berlin today. It was speculated earlier this morning.

The service can be managed through one account, and can be streamed via BRAVIA TVs, VAIO computers, Blu-ray players and more.

More information on how the service works and when it will launch will follow shortly, according to a post on the EU PS Blog.

“We are excited to offer our customers high quality, cloud-based entertainment experiences across many of Sony’s network-enabled devices,” said SCEI boss Kaz Hirai.

“Services ‘powered by Qriocity’ will revolutionize the way that users play, listen, watch, share, communicate, learn, discover and create their digital entertainment content.”

    I didn’t think Qriocity was “new”, and had been announced a long time ago (E3 I think) as in development. In fact you always see the Qriocity logo from the PSN login (on official website)?

    heard that name before, quite a while ago, music service was one of their theories as to what the heck it would be, qriocity is a horrible name though =\ wonder if this will be free to PS+ users containing an alternative subscription of some sort for non PS+ members, as i have stated before, it’s services what people want, content is great but there’s numerous reasons as to why it’s not great for a subscription deal, for one, unless it’s new content, there’s the chance you may already own some of the content on offer, & unless there’s some great offer the month you have a look at it, nothing there may interest the individual.

    and it’s called not Qriocity, it’s called “Music Unlimited” and it’s powered by Qriocity.

    Speaking of walkman, why do sony make accesories for the iPod? that’s always confused me..
    I’d rather a PSP over any mp3/4 player anyways, just wish they dumped flash cards & used SD cards, cheaper & more efficient, but Sony makes money out of the flash cards so i can understand why they kept it.

  9. Crysis more than JUST music, qriocity was formerly named Sony Online Services,
    “Sony will deliver a variety of digital entertainment
    content and services that are “powered by Qriocity”, including video, music, game applications, and e-books over time”
