Microsoft Launches MSN Music Store to Compete with iTunes

MSN Music Store

Microsoft must be feeling the heat from Apple. This week they released a beta version of the MSN Music Store in an effort to unseat Apple’s dominance in downloadable music market.

Just like iTunes, the MSN Music website offers song downloads for 99¢. The store also has integration into Windows Media Player 10, which is scheduled to launch later this week.

What do you think? Is it too little too late by Microsoft? Or does Apple need to be dethroned?
