Business Insider is reporting that Xbox Music was announced at yesterdays Microsoft Partner Conference.
Here are the details Platform Nation have received from a Microsoft’s Spokesman:
A recent demonstration of upcoming Xbox features showcased what we will deliver later this fall on Xbox, including voice search with Bing on Xbox to locate and access entertainment content on the console. This includes Zune music which has a catalog of more than 11 million tracks.
Presumably this will replace the current Zune Marketplace, at least for music purposes, and Business Insider theorizes that it will likely be based on a similar model.
I’d expect more details to emerge shortly.
