Monday, 8th June 2009 12:21 GMT By Mike


Kotaku‘s unearthed some more details of the service that will be integrated into XBL later this year.

Yes, there’s still no date but you’ll have the ability to share your playlists with friends and create your own, unique station.

The feature list in full:

  • browse artists & tracks and compile custom playlists
  • share those playlists, and other recommendations, with friends via “Party Radio” (you’ll also be able to listen in on the same songs/playlists together)
  • create your own station
  • check out artist pages complete with photos, band info and other info like how to find similar artists.

Microsoft has announced will be free for all Live Gold subscribers.

    Can you plug a bog standard keyboard into a 360 ? Or is there some ms one that costs 60 quid. Or can you plug one in at all ? Wouldn’t fancy this with just a pad.

    will this be integrated into the guide button, playlists i mean, which you can play while gaming?

    I doubt it, daytripper, as the music is streamed from the ‘net and could cause issues with online games; Live enabled titles stop background downloads for this reason.

    Not sure if you can. You can pick up a chatpad which fits snuggly onto a standard pad for ~£20. With the new features I may just pick one up at some point.

    Standard USB keyboards work with the 360. I use a Chatpad, which I keep plugged into my controller at all times.

    All this would be moot if they just supported a fully functional web browser.

    Preferably one not built by Microsoft of course.

    TEA: Facebook is a managled mess on the PS3 web browser. Everything is squished together and I cant post my status or comments.

    And while Twitter does work when reading it, I cant update it on my PS3 (at least when it worked)
