UK radio entered new territory this week, with the arrival of Virgin Radio on the Wii and PS3 consoles. Access to the radio channels is now possible via the web browsers on each console, and as well as Virgin Radio, you can also now listen to Xtreme, Classic Rock, and Groove.
In addition to the new radio offerings available on the two consoles, you can now buy concert tickets, CDs and downloadable tracks. Then there’s the option to play music videos, and its all through the Virgin Radio Player.
Reports suggest that you won’t be able to play games while listening to the radio, although it is certainly another feather in the cap of each system’s online offering. Virgin reckon this player and its arrival on these two new consoles will allow them to get in touch with ‘the kids’.
The Xbox 360 sadly misses out, because of the lack of web browser, though who knows what could be possible with further updates in the future.
