Virgin to be the first UK radio station available on Wii and PS3

Gamers who own a Nintendo Wii or PlayStation 3 will be able to listen to Virgin Radio as it is to become the first UK radio station available on the games consoles.

Virgin and other SMG-owned stations Xtreme, Classic Rock and Groove are available via the consoles’ browsers using Virgin’s online radio player as Windows Media and Real Player are not currently compatible with the two consoles.

Users can also watch videos and sessions as well as buy CDs, tickets and tracks through the Virgin Radio Ticket Store. However because the capacity of the consoles means users will not be able to listen to the station while playing games is this anything to be excited about?

I can?¢‚Ǩ‚Ñ¢t see why anyone would care and it certainly is not a buying point for either of the consoles. In fact I?¢‚Ǩ‚Ñ¢m sure that if you have the funds to buy a PS3 you can easily buy a radio or listen via your computer or even via Sky Digital or Virgin media.
