Slacker Radio Now on Xbox 360


The newly revamped Slacker radio today found a new home on the Xbox 360 gaming console.

Now available for Xbox Live subscribers in the U.S. and Canada, Slacker brings millions of songs and hundreds of programmed stations to the Xbox Live Marketplace.

Not impressed, gamers? Why not give a listen to the new videogame music station, curated by gaming culture blog Destructoid.

“Slacker brings the world’s most complete music service to Xbox Live Gold subscribers in the U.S. and Canada for free,” chief marketing officer Craig Rechenmacher said in a statement. “Whether you’re into country, hip hop or want to listen to the soundtrack from your favorite game, Slacker’s team of music experts make it easy to find and discover the world’s best music from the comfort of your living room.”

Slacker’s addition to Xbox Live provides users access to a massive music library, containing music for every mood, genre, and activity, available directly on their TV. Those with the Kinect sensor can take advantage of voice controls. Listeners can also customize their experience with global and sports news from ABC and ESPN.

Destructoid editor Dale North has been tapped to host a new station celebrating the world of videogame music, Slacker said. The station will feature hand-picked selections from the soundtracks of epic franchises like Halo, Gears of War, and Final Fantasy.

Earlier this month,¬†Slacker revealed an updated interface. It simplified navigation and added a new “Music Guide” with industry news and videos, making it easier for users to find the music they like.

Notably, the company removed its former tabbed area, replacing the Home, Now Playing, Create Your Own, and Devices buttons with a panel interface and large icons. Free mobile versions of Slacker are available for iOS, Android, Windows Phone, and BlackBerry. From pcmag.com
