First Sony gets themselves knee-deep in DRM problems, and now Microsoft is the next to piss us off with special DRM protection re: Xbox 360. The 360 is perfectly capable of streaming music from a networked PC, unfortunately there seems to be a little problem when trying to load MP3s onto the hard drive in the premium edition. It appears that the 360 will only play back music if it is ripped onto the 360 hard drive from an audio CD. And for a generation of kids and adults who no longer purchase traditional music CDs, this could quickly become a giant pain in the ass.
