Microsoft told me at E3 there were "more details" to be revealed about the Last.fm partnership for Xbox Live, suggesting there would be a way for people who weren't paying for an annual subscription to stream music through their console. Joystiq's learned what exactly Microsoft meant by that; as it turnso ut, XBL silver users will have some access.
It's really limited, though, according to XBL general manager Christina DeRosa -- just three hours a month and supported with video advertising. Gold members will have unlimited access to Last.fm streaming, but have to wade through ads, too. For an ad-free experience, gamers have to sign up for a Last.fm subscription, which is $3-per-month.
Any silver users reading TheFeed? Is this a fair compromise?
