Turning on a console to play music from your tv.
I play fifa and have spotify running through the console because the mix is better... hardly an outlandish concept....

I must admit the whole idea of playing external music whilst playing a game is an odd one to me.

If the game has it's own music then it is an integral part of the game and you are missing out by replacing it with your own selection. If the games doesn't have music integral to it, e.g. FIFA, I don't want to have music playing that distracts from my immersion in the game (in other words I am bad enough at FIFA as it is without having unnecessary distractions )

Surely no one still has separate HiFi & TV sound systems in 2017

Of course it is.


But why would I go through the hassle of playing the music through the Spotify interface on a console? Much quicker just using your phone.

Ah, if your phone connects directly to the same HiFi, yes of course it is. That would have to be a fairly modern HiFi system though. For people like me who have had the same surround sound system for years, being able to play spotify via my PS4 is dead handy, especially as you can still control it via your phone.

It is, I just wonder what took M/S so long to support it. It's not like they have their own music streaming service anymore is it

EDIT: I've just checked and they do

Somebody in the marketing department needs sacking
