Microsoft Bringing Xbox Music to 360, Tablets, and Phones

Like last year’s E3, Microsoft had plenty of extra-gaming content to announce for the Xbox. On top of plenty of Kinect news, Microsoft’s announcing Xbox Music, which seems to be the successor to Zune Music, rest the Zune’s soul.

In an effort to continue its push to making the Xbox 360 the go-to-all-entertainment hub, Xbox Music will allow users to enjoy music on their Xbox, Windows 8, and Windows phone. Although there’s been word that Xbox Music will be supported on iOS and Android, Microsoft didn’t officially announce this via its conference earlier today at 9 AM PST.

Overall, details on Xbox Music are still scarce. Microsoft’s only confirmed that some social features will be included in Xbox Music, but Xbox Music was buried behind a slew of other entertainment announcements for the Xbox.
