The response from gamers worldwide since the launch of PlayStation®4 in November has been nothing short of phenomenal, with more than 4.2 million units sold as of December 28, 2013.  Equally exciting is that more people than ever are enjoying the Music Unlimited service now thanks to PS4.

Music Unlimited subscriber growth has doubled as gamers enjoy  cool features  like jamming to the latest Top 40 hits or Eminem Channel in the background while playing their favorite game. We’ve also seen a 50% increase[i] in the number of tracks streamed, while PS4 has accounted for 38%[ii] of total Music Unlimited playback.

Now we’re getting ready for the next big step.

On February 22, PS4 will launch in Japan and the Music Unlimited service will be along for the ride from Day one in one of the world’s largest and most influential music markets.

The Music Unlimited service first launched in Japan in July 2012 and is already the top streaming music service in the country. Music Unlimited on PS4 offers an incredible listening experience with a completely redesigned user interface that is faster and simpler to user. In addition to music playback in the background, users can also play, pause, skip tracks and seek to a location within a song on the fly without completely exiting games or other apps through a pop-up menu by pressing the “PS” button on the DUALSHOCK®4 controller.

For those of you enjoying Music Unlimited on PS4 outside of Japan, here are a few of our favorite Japanese artists to help you get ready for the launch.
