LAST.FM is offering an app that lets users interact with their favorite artists and songs using KINECT for XBOX 360; it 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," CBS INTERACTIVE MUSIC GROUP Pres. DAVID GOODMAN said. "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."
