203w ago - Today VidZone's Head of Production Ben Creasey has announced that both Sony and VidZone wish to extend greetings of a Happy Australia Day to PS3 fans.
To quote: Australia has a day? Who would have thought? Nah, I'm joking... I knew that. Well we couldn't let this one slip by without contributing something to the party.
Now what do you think we could give to the Australian people to help them celebrate? Alcohol? Nope, BBQ food? fraid not. Party hats? don't be stupid!... Not got it yet... A PLAYLIST OF COURSE!!!
We have videos from everyone that is anyone in the Australian music scene. From Pendulum to Powderfinger, Hilltop Hoods to Hunters and Collectors.
This one is only available to Australian VidZone users (for obvious reasons) and will be available on Monday 25th of January which I know is a day early, but it gives you a day to check out the videos before the main event.
Hope you all have a "Bonza" day (sorry I had to put one in...) Let me know how it went!

Because of this, we have to try to get artificially summery to give you all videos that remind us of the summer. So all the winter crew have a respite from all the depressing winteriness that has invaded our lives, and all you summer crew have a soundtrack to accompany the shining sun.

206w ago - Today VidZone's Head of Production Ben Creasey has extended a warm THANKS to Sony PS3 fans for making the VidZone service the biggest dedicated music video streaming application in the world.
To quote: VidZone is officially the biggest dedicated music video streaming application in the world!! With over 2,000,000 application downloads and 200,000,000 videos streamed so far!!
