If you want to play it on one of five apple products.

I wonder if it will sell Sony's Music too? Interesting.

But for people who don't want any part of Apple's walled garden this sounds like a good substitute, even if it is substituting one closed eco-system for another. But then again, if Xbox Music has a player on Android as well as WP and Windows, it could be quite a good service.

The iPod is cheap, reliable and has the biggest back catalogue of music for any music service, why choose anything else? If it's cheaper then fine but I highly doubt it.
