Great news today from Music Unlimited - the 18 million song streaming service wired directly to your PlayStation devices. We've heard your requests for more dedicated genre stations, and we're excited to have just released the Game Music channel.
Listen to an archive of game soundtracks, from massive blockbusters to cult classics including Assassins Creed, Silent Hill, Prince of Persia, Final Fantasy and Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, among others. New songs will be added weekly to keep the channel fresh with music from all the latest games.
Over the coming weeks you can look forward to thirteen additional channels for other requested genres, like Old School Hip-Hop and New Wave.
Outside of the channels, we can tell a lot of you were watching the Grammys, as there have been big bumps in plays this week for The Lumineers, Frank Ocean, Rihanna and others. The top of our charts remains a hip-hop battle between A$AP Rocky and Macklemore.

51w ago - Minority Media Community Manager Deborah Chantson has shared a video today announcing the Papo & Yo music, soundtrack and sale on PSN tomorrow!
To quote: Just as I wrote about graffiti in Papo & Yo back in July, I wanted to share another story and video diary about how we captured the unique music and sound to transport players deeper into the South American favela of Quico's imagination.
And with the flood of requests we've gotten since launch, I'm excited to announce that the Papo & Yo soundtrack will be available for purchase starting tomorrow on PSN in North America!
As a special release day promotion, it will be on sale for 15% off the regular price (30% off for Plus members) until January 4th.
Over the past few months, some of you may have caught my tweets about our brilliant composer and sound designer, Brian D'Oliveira from La Hacienda Creative.
Fun facts like "Brian D'Oliveira learned about 15 new instruments to play for Papo & Yo!" or "when Monster runs, the sound effect actually comes from hitting a fridge," are just a glimpse of the music's backstory in Papo & Yo.
