Sony has announced a new partnership with Spotify to bring the music service to PS3 and PS4 later this spring.

Spotify will act as the exclusive partner for PlayStation Music, a brand new 'music destination' that will let PS3 and PS4 users access their Spotify playlists and listen to music directly through their console.

PS4 users will also be able to use the service to listen to Spotify while playing games - something PS3 users, it seems, won't be able to do - with "other great features" due to be announced closer to launch.

As well as PS3 and PS4, PlayStation Music will also be available on Xperia smartphones and tablets.

The new service will replace Sony's existing Music Unlimited service, however. Users with active Music Unlimited subscriptions from February 28 will receive free access through to the service's closure on March 29, 2015.

An exact launch date for PlayStation Music - or details on whether it requires any additional fees to access - have yet to be announced.
