Xbox Music to launch October 26?

Microsoft will launch its streaming Xbox Music service on October 26th, according to a report on The Verge.

The service will offer free, ad-funded access to Xbox LIVE Gold users, which will also be supplemented by those paying for the ad-free service.

Anyone using a Windows Phone and Windows 8 devices as well as Xbox 360, will be able to access and store music and playlists in the cloud using Microsoft SkyDrive. Xbox 360 owners will get access to the service in the latest Xbox 360 dashboard update, which should launch around the same time.

iOS and Android support is also on the way, although there is currently no timescale for this.

Stop it Microsoft. Its a console, stop getting ideas above your station and get Justin Beaber and the Black Eyed Peas off my damned dashboard. I think I speak for alot of gamers when I say our consoles are supposed to be a refuge from these horrors, dont take that away from us!

Face it the traditional games console will soon be gone and we will have entertainment systems. MS are doing it so are Sony and Nintendo.

I dont mind this at all. If its decently supported with the artists I want and they offer an enticing free trial I might be tempted. I still want iTunes to offer a proper sub service, so I shall take a look at least.

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
