Yesterday Microsoft’s Albert Penello, Microsoft’s head of product planning for new Xbox One console took to Twitter to announce the addition of the new advert supported Xbox Music streaming service with the Xbox One console and allowing owner to listen to Xbox Music without the need for a subscription.
Unfortunately the news Tweeted by Microsoft’s Albert Penello was wrong and the Xbox Music service will still require a subscription for Xbox One owners to listen to Music. But hey it does come with a free trial.
Microsoft’s Penello again took to Twitter this morning to explain he was wrong and he was sorry for getting gamers hopes up. Currently the Xbox Music service for Windows 8.1 and the web allows users to stream ad-supported music without a subscription, but the Xbox 360 console requires a subscription which looks to be continuing with the new next generation Xbox One console.
The Xbox One games console launches on November 22nd 2013 and is priced at $499.99 in the US, £429.99 in the UK and 499.99 Euros throughout Europe and $599.99 AU in Australia.
To Re-cap the Xbox One is powered by a customised AMD Jaguar 8 core processor is equipped with a GPU that is tailored for Direct X 11 games and graphics with 32MB of high bandwidth embedded ESRAM supported by 8GB of RAM.
