Is anyone going to use this?

If you've got an Xbox Live Gold account, it wouldn't hurt to give it a try!

I personally don't get the point of music apps on a game console, but somebody must use them or they wouldn't keep releasing them.

True, but if you've got your Xbox hooked up to a home theater system, I can see the appeal.

Well they don't really make stereo systems anymore, my consoles are hooked up to stereo surround sound system, so I like to chill and listen to music on them from time to time, it allows me to crank it up a bit.

There are a couple of free satellite radio options on Xbox Live as well. I usually have a few people a day listening to one or the other, so there is obviously a market for it.

It would be cool if you could use these music apps while playing games. Lets hope that the next Xbox will do this.

Wait, if you have Xbox live gold you DON'T have to pay the 5 bucks a month to Rhapsody or you still have to have a paid Rhapsody account also before you can use it??!!

You still have to pay the normal subscription to Rhapsody.
TheBrit  +   632d ago
That's what I figured, just wanted to confirm. The part where they say "The service goes live today, and is available for Xbox Live Gold members as well as those with a Rhapsody subscription" makes it sound like one or the other but based on all of the other apps I kind of knew better.

Hm, that's kind of a bummer. But expected.
