Expanding on the
ground breaking partnership that began with the launch of Last.fm on
Microsoft’s Xbox 360 almost one year ago, users of the leading global music
platform will now be able to interact with their favorite artists and songs using
Kinect for Xbox 360 which launches this week.  Last.fm has generated more than 2.5 million
new registrants since debuting on the Xbox LIVE entertainment service with
users streaming in excess of 70 minutes of music per session.
 
           

Kinect
for Xbox 360 will allow users to enjoy entertainment on Xbox LIVE and 17 Xbox
360 games this Holiday completely controller-free.  The Last.fm app takes the music discovery
service one step further by allowing the audience to play personalized radio
stations created from any one of the millions of tracks in Last.fm’s vast
library, and love, skip or ban individual songs without the aid of a
controller.  Music recommendations will
be made based on a user’s interaction with the app.

“Working
with Microsoft to develop and launch the updated Last.fm app which is optimized
for Kinect navigation, provides users with an innovative, and engaging music
discovery and personalized radio experience powered by Last.fm’s
recommendations on a next generation entertainment gaming platform,” said David
Goodman, President, CBS Interactive Music Group.  “Kinect brings games and entertainment to
life in extraordinary new ways, and is an ideal environment for the
functionality and fun that Last.fm’s millions of users expect.”
