The idea of playing music on these systems might not make sense to non-gamers. But these consoles are often connected to powerful stereo or, even better surround sound speaker systems — besides, both offer the ability to play your music alongside your games, rather than enduring the usual nu-metal (or whatever) jams that occupy gaming soundtracks. Finally, to a gamer, picking up that controller (or their smartphone) in order to queue up music on their console is not foreign. Many of these people are going to be watching television on their consoles too. It’s only natural to play music on these consoles, and both Sony and Microsoft offer bespoke music subscription services, plus other ways to play music on these machines — although not as many as perhaps they should have.

Les acteurs l’ont bien compris : ils se sont tous développés sur le web. C’est même ce qui leur permet de voir leurs audiences continuer à progresser. Aujourd’hui la radio totalise 8,9 % de son audience cumulée en dehors du transistor (téléphone, ordinateur, TV, baladeur), selon une étude de Médiamétrie. Les revenus liés au numérique restent mineurs pour les stations, bien qu’ils se développent à vitesse grand V. « Internet, c’est l’avenir de la radio ! », s’exclame Jean-Paul Baudecroux, patron de NRJ, dont le public jeune est particulièrement sensible au web. De son côté, RTL a décidé d’accélérer sur Internet en 2014 et prévoit, pour la première fois, des acquisitions dans les prochains mois.
