If you are a gamer as well as a music fan, then chances are you would be beaming from ear to ear with this bit of news – Nintendo has enabled their current generation Wii U console to be able to stream music from Rhapsody, now how about that? This will ensure that your Wii U will be able to deliver Rhapsody’s personalized music experience right to where you normally game, and it is made possible thanks to a free app that can be obtained from the Nintendo eShop.
Rhapsody subscribers who own a Wii U console will be able to dive into the action right away, while Wii U owners who have not yet subscribed to Rhapsody or Napster will be able to enjoy a 30-day free trial before making their decision.
Ethan Rudin, Chief Financial Officer, Rhapsody International, shared, “We know that close to 91 percent of all Americans listen to music more than 24 hours a week. We’re honored to partner with Nintendo to bring music to Wii U users, and continue Rhapsody’s goal of making it easy for people to listen to the music they love wherever they are.”
Guess the Wii U would make for a decent platform to listen to your music then, especially for those who have also hooked up their game console to some pretty decent speakers. [Press Release]
