235w ago - Sony has confirmed that VidZone will go live on June 11, 2009 for PS3 users.
The free service gives you access to thousands of streaming music videos on demand, just in case you didn't know.
Users can expect 10,000 videos right off the bat to download off PSN, with more to come.
Press Release: Turn your PLAYSTATION 3 into a music video jukebox on June 11th - with three solid weeks' worth of videos from day one!
London, 10th June 2009: VidZone, the revolutionary on-demand music video service for PLAYSTATION 3 from Sony Computer Entertainment Europe, is confirmed to go live on Thursday 11th June. VidZone is a brand new, free service that gives you the freedom to view thousands of music videos on demand by streaming them directly to your PS3 and onto your TV screen - complete with Surround Sound.
It's launching with a bang and it's packed with a huge library of over 10,000 videos. What does that mean? It means that if you put them all into a single playlist and watched it for 24 hours a day, seven days a week - it would take you three solid weeks to watch it all. And there's much, much more on the way.
276w ago - Worried that PS3's streaming Vidzone music videos were going to get in the way of your games? SCEE president David Reeves is here to quell the fear.
"People said, 'I wish I could listen to the music, and see it as well,'" Reeves told us, speaking at Games Convention in Leipzig last week.
"Because you can listen to it - you don't have to see the music video - and play your game at the same time. And that to them was very important."
The Vidzone service - which allows streaming of music videos to all PS3 users in Europe for free - is to launch early next year. A download service for similar content is scheduled to hit towards the end of 2009.
