Q_unlimited

Hurray, hurray! Step right up! We have something special in store for you!

Featured New Releases on Music Unlimited
Game – “The R.E.D. Album”: The LA rapper unites with fellow West Coast heroes Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg and Tyler, The Creator on a 21 track album that also includes guest appearances from Lil Wayne and Chris Brown. Aiming for his fourth consecutive #1 Rap album, we’re betting he usurps the throne from Kanye and Jay-Z who look to hold down the top slot for a third consecutive week. Should be a good battle.

If you like: Lil Wayne 50 Cent, Dr. Dre
Recommended Track: “Pot of Gold (ft. Chris Brown)”

30 Seconds to Mars – “Thirty Seconds to Mars Unplugged”: This acoustic set features highlights of their performance on the iconic MTV Unplugged series this past July. Joined by an orchestral string section, these stripped down arrangements are further augmented by the bombastic background vocals of a room full of their biggest fans.

If you like: Rise Against, My Chemical Romance, Incubus
Recommended Track: “Where the Streets Have No Name (U2 Cover)”

Wyatt Cenac – “Comedy Person”: A former writer on King of the Hill and current correspondent for The Daily Show, Wyatt Cenac has also gained serious buzz for his stand up performances. Check out his take on a backwards Spider-man, among other topics, including 25 minutes of material not aired on his recent Comedy Central special.
If you like: Demetri Martin, Marc Maron, Jon Stewart
Recommended Track: “Medieval Times”

Coming Soon:

Lil Wayne – “Tha Carter IV”: The wait is almost over! Music Unlimited’s most played artist follows his massive hit single, “How to Love,” and recently released, “She Is (ft. Drake”), with the fourth installment of Tha Carter series. Weezy even gets a special street date, droppin the album on Monday the 29th instead of a typical Tuesday release. Catch his performance on this weekend’s MTV Video Music Awards and be among the first to hear the new record the following day on Music Unlimited.

What other albums are you looking forward to this Fall? What’s out that you already love?

Prediction: Your music service will tank or it is as we speak… if you do not change something

Idea:Give plus members the full service for 5 dollar a month.

PSN store should be equally available where PS3 is being sold, scandanavia & elsewhere.

+ Solid-Snake-Eyes on August 26th, 2011 at 6:26 pm said:

You guys need to have more movies for rent instead of purchase-only, for example I had planned to rent Resident Evil Afterlife only to discover it was purchase-only. It seems rare but I still run into it now and then so I end up going and renting it at the video store, and you guys lose $6. There was another one recently, I think it was Battle Los Angeles, I just rented it at the store.

i’m still sad that Canada doesn’t have Music Unlimited Powered by Qriocity =(

+ PirateHarlock on August 27th, 2011 at 10:42 am said:

Diavolantinoboy23 is right about Qriocity also, not just here in canada as well but everywhere else it just isn’t offered. Sony as a whole has done a very shoddy job of making its network services available everywhere but making them work consistantly, and where it is available the prices are excessives and most of the choices strictly 2nd rate. SONY must do better.


22

+ PirateHarlock on August 27th, 2011 at 10:45 am said:

Sony should put more effort into things like qriocity availability like diavolatinoboy23 pointed out instead of so rabidly censoring mere mention of it. Its unprofessional and lazy. If even a few inside sony put half the effort into getting things done instead of avoiding work they’d see a huge drop in complaints about substandard services.

28

+ Znuffer on August 28th, 2011 at 3:20 pm said:

oh and the reason they can’t put music unlimited in Canada is because they don’t have the rights from the record companies to put them in any other company except the USA. Sorry Canada, unless Qriocity decides to pay the money to do that, you will have to find another way to listen to music.
