According to a PSN release schedule obtained by videogaming247.com, the online music video service, operated by London-based company VidZone Digital Media will be available to download from PSN on 4th June.
I was looking this up last night on my laptop, ain't too bad a service, welcome to my PS3 anytime.
Wow, videogaming247 do like to pad out their info. There are more articles on this one release schedule than SCEE disappointments in the history of Playstation.
...3 SCEE personally never let me down before the whole PS3 PSN Store thing, well and game releases, but game releases are the norm, we're always last, without the exception of Killzone 2.
i'd rather have this service over that one: http://listen.grooveshark.c... so many more songs .. i searched for eminem's songs, not even one on vidzone, grooveshark has got like ALOT!!
If this can be run while playing games that will be really really sweet
David Reeves says in the article that it can.
"David Reeves says in the article that it can." That's right, David Reeves said that, so I wouldn't assume that for certain. No offense, but that guy, David, has a certain flair for being misinformed.
Here's the quote: “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.”
Hmm, we shall see. But a lot of the time, I don't like the stuff that comes out of David Reeve's mouth. I don't exactly trust him word for word. Oh well, hope this is right, could be really cool and I hope it plays over the Internet Browser too.
Wasn't it supposed to ship in spring 09?
Original slated for early 2009 I think. So June is earlier than I'd expect from SCEE ;)
This basically give MS time to buy out certian companies support for their video service.
Or is it also coming to US
EU, Oz and New Zealand. Vidzone only has rights for those areas I believe. Here's the site, if it works on your PC it might work on a EU PSN account. http://www.vidzone.tv/
Anyone know if this is being built into the xmb or is it through the web browser ??? If its the web browser it would be pretty pointless.
Na its a proper application. They should make one for YouTube like there is on the iPhone!
it will probably be like the xmb music and require developers to add in game vidzone to there games.
I wish we could just have general HDD music playback as well as this.
yeah...but their trying to do new things as well, which can only be good thing...
