  • Juan Martinez Suarez

    All news apps are nice however when will Microsoft and Xbox fix all the pending issues concerning the well aware problems with xbox live parties, and the problems with the xbox live service (such as buying on the marketplace etc) after the last couple of updates. This is something you guys should fix first of all before adding more stuff that might work or not.

  • Marc Hughes

    Thats not gonna happen…I would bet money with all these new apps they WILL have the balls to try and raise the price of a gold subscription again…Even though it should be cheapened with all those ads that companies pay to have put on there

  • Marc Hughes

    There is no way in hell they will add Spotify end of story it is a direct competitor to MS music service…

    • JayD

      There are tons of competitors to Xbox Music already Napster/Rhapsody/Youtube/Vevo/etc.

    • Willy McBurgle

      Marc is right, I’m afraid…

  • Marc Hughes

    They are’t going to add spotify period end of story it is a DIRECT competitor to Xbox music….That would make as much sense as adding a PS3 and, Wii U app….They want people to switch from Spotify to Xbox music
