E3 2012: Microsoft Pumps Up the Jams with Xbox Music

on June 4, 2012 1:26 PM

Microsoft is thoroughly focused on making sure the Xbox is central to one’s entire entertainment experience. While the Zune player hasn’t done particularly well, Microsoft is definitely not done with the music game. Today at their E3 press conference, Microsoft played Xbox’s full entertainment focus with a trailer exhibiting Xbox Music.

Xbox music will replace their Zune player and feature 30 million songs. Not satisfied with just that, the trailer showed off Xbox Music’s ability to sync and stream music between the console, phones and Windows 8-enabled tablets in real-time. The Xbox may be the oldest brother in this console generation, but it seems like Microsoft still has a lot of tricks up their sleeves.
