171w ago - VidZone's Head of Production Ben Creasey is here with this weeks VidZone PS3 updates today, as follows:
A couple of things to shout about this week. First of all, our friends at the Official PlayStation Magazine have been busy picking through our huge catalogue to pick their favourite videos for their very own playlist!
Which is a very a mixed bag of very great videos... which is nice. Also one of our very special staff Joel "Junior" Stamp who creates most of the amazing images and skins for the service is unfortunately leaving us to go back to university (slacker!) so for a leaving present we thought we would let him pick a playlist for you, all you Emo heads are in for a treat!
Hot New Videos
Music videos that are quite frankly too hot to handle and too new to... chew... stew... accrue. Don't you worry, after a small brainstorming session; I have loads more where that came from. Featuring The Shapeshifters, You Me At Six, Papa Roach, Marit Larsen, Loick Essien, Scissor Sisters and Mcfly. Enjoy
Artist Of The Week - Kanye West (Europe)
I know I don't have to introduce this Hip-Hop powerhouse to you, so all I'm gonna...
172w ago - VidZone's Head of Production Ben Creasey has revealed today that the exclusive Underworld - Always Loved A Film video is heading to Sony's PS3 entertainment system.
To quote: Do I need to introduce Underworld? I would like to think that I don't. They aren't just the ones that did that one that went "Lager lager lager shouting"; they are producers that have shaped the dance music scene for the last 25 years, albeit with a couple of breaks here and there.
So, we have the exclusive of their new video, Always Loved a Film, and I have to say the whole office is a fan of this video. Imagine footage of your local skate park attendees but with a twist; to find out the twist, well you can probably see from the screen grabs, but get yourself over to VidZone to check... it... out.
The track is from their new album, Barking, which is out on the 13th of September and is destined to be quite a smash with collaborations with everyone from Mark Knight to High Contrast.
173w ago - VidZone's Head of Production Ben Creasey has revealed that this weeks VidZone PS3 updates includes the arrival of EMI and NERD exclusives on PSN.

So whether you like Katy Perry or Iron Maiden, Coldplay or Daft Punk (and 1000's in-between) go check them out.
As a thank you to you all for being so patient, we have a very special and very exclusive gift to all of you, and it doesn't come much better than NERD.

Festival Anthems - Soundtrack For A Funeral Stage
Not as morbid as it sounds... No funeral dirges or death chants, instead, songs that evoke emotion, videos that remind you that make you want to cry... just a little bit. Hard to explain... but you know what I mean right? Including...
