Xbox Music Is Useless on Xbox

When Xbox Music -- goodbye, Zune Marketplace -- launches on your 360 on October 16, the ad-supported streaming service will debut globally with a song library of 30 million, 18 million of which will be available instantly for United States users on a free or subscription-based basis. The catch (of course there’s a catch!) is that Xbox Music is a fantastic application for a very specific kind of person. (Xbox 360)

LOL..I love Zune Music account so who cares if they change the name.

If your a huge music fan like I am then nothing is touching it..IMO Love the fact you get all of the big new releases the day they come out.

Plus you can listen through your PC or laptop. I love when I discover a new artist or group through the other music services and then use my Zune and have access to the whole discography.

Although there definately are times when an artist doesnt allow certain albums to be streamed thought the service.

Far from useless

Zune was actually cool, and from what I know thats all Xbox music is? So its quite useful, a lot more useful than RAM hogging Itunes.....

It's annoying how game consoles aren't actually game consoles anymore. They're just weak PCs now.

why is that annoying? you would think that more uses would be a good thing

Distractions. Would rather MS/Sony just focus on improving game-related features. I have my PC for everything else.

I wouldn't particularly mind. Good music is becoming hard to find in the US. But there's a slight problem. MS is an American bassed company, and I like my music with a bit of international flavor.
Will this name change make international music as hard or harder to find as it is for indi games?

I have never used Zune, honestly. I am surprised to hear it changing though.

For myself, I use spotify to listen to my songs and for the most part try to stumble across new songs, eMusic I've bought songs from and Amazon as well. Of course I'll try to use whatever I can to find new music and then to be able to purchase the music so I can use it :)

I'll have to try (Zune/Xbox Music) it one of these times.
