IFA 2010: Sony PS3 – iTunes-Like Service coming in 2011

By Alan Ng - Sep 1, 2010

We have some exciting news for PS3 owners now, as it has been reported that Sony are planning to introduce a new music and video service next year, a service which will be similar to Apple’s iTunes program.

As reported from VG247, the Financial Times has just written a whole article on Sony’s upcoming plans, despite the fact that the company has yet to officially confirm this.

The FT has it on good authority, that Sony will use their Playstation 3 console as the main starting base, while the service is also expected to roll out on the PSP handheld as well as other Sony devices, including Bravia TVs, Vaio Laptops and their Sony Ericsson mobile phones.

Like iTunes though, don’t expect this to come free. The Financial Times state that a subscription fee will be needed, although no exact figures were mentioned, and there were also no hints on whether the service would be included with Playstation Plus – Sony’s new premium service for the PS3.

What are your initial thoughts on this? Are you excited or not? Sony are expected to unveil it properly at IFA later this week.
