Xbox Live "Woodstock" music service to be unveiled at E3 - report

Farewell Zune.

Microsoft will reportedly preview its new music service, code-named Woodstock, at E3 2012.

The cross-platform offering will operate on Xbox 360, Windows 8 PCs, phones and tablets, plus Android and iOS devices. It will completely replace the current Zune brand.

Woodstock will be browser-based, Verge reports, but run without plugins.

Spotify-eque social playlist sharing, Facebook features and iTunes Match-style library integration are also likely.

Microsoft's E3 demo will come some months ahead of Woodstock's launch, according to the report. The final product is set to be released alongside the first wave of Windows 8 devices due later this year.
