174w ago - Today Head of Production Ben Creasey has announced that VidZone PS3 will be getting both faster and better as they prepare to launch EMI Music alongside a new version 1.15 software update.
To quote: We can exclusively announce that EMI Music has joined VidZone and there is a new software update which means VidZone is faster and better than ever before.
VidZone welcomes EMI Music which has a catalogue of over 8,000 music videos from fantastic artists including Coldplay, Katy Perry, Kylie Minogue, Iron Maiden, David Guetta, David Bowie, Chemical Brothers, Daft Punk and many more.
Check out your EMI cloud of all the acts everyone on this blog has requested since VidZone launched in June 2009 - yes, you can now access all these acts!
Before launching EMI, we wanted to ensure VidZone was better and faster so you could party harder. Here are some top features of VidZone 1.15 - thanks to all at SCEE for their help on this release:
Speedy updates: The VidZone application will start-up exceptionally faster and content refreshes will be processed and downloaded quicker.
Optimised search: Search is now better than ever before. You can find more of what you want, without 'that scrolling letters search', as virtual keyboard becomes default.
Advanced settings: Our videos are multibitrate with hi, med and lo quality settings. You can now control your bandwidth use by fixing these settings (Aussie, Kiwi & Italiano fans - this is for you!)
Overall experience: We have fixed a few minor bugs which will make a big difference to your music experience. Let us know if you can spot them!
VidZone 1.15 goes live TODAY so please download the update ahead of EMI content being published from Tuesday, August 17.
And yes, EMI and VidZone 1.15 updates are across all 18 countries including Australia, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France (with Monaco), Germany, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Spain (with Gibraltar), Sweden, Switzerland and the UK.
