Microsoft is back in talks with the record companies about yet another music venture, according to C-Net, this one built around the Xbox but also serving Windows-based phones. This service would seemingly be different to Microsoft’s Zune platform, which initially supported the IT firm’s now discontinued Zune players, but which is now also available to Xbox users. The Zune platform itself replaced an earlier digital music play by Microsoft. Negotiations are seemingly at an early stage though, C-Net says, there are plans to launch something this year.
