I love that Japan takes game music seriously. Its singles and albums rank up there right alongside pop and rock, and in music stores you'll find them in the same racks.
Sony is also taking game music seriously. They've announced a service called PlayStation Game Music for Japan. It lets users stream first and third-party PlayStation game music to mobile devices.
Andriasang says that the service launches with content from Final Fantasy XIII-2, Monster Hunter, Dynasty Warriors and the Yakuza series. There's also sound effects to get down to.
It's too bad that there's not a similar effort here. The closest thing we have is my wonderful AOL Radio Video Game Scores station.
