In another explosive keynote at this year’s Games Convention, Sony announced today that VidZone, the online destination for music videos, will deliver their free streaming music video service to PS3. A trial service is scheduled for launch in early 2009 for Europe, Australia and New Zealand, and is sure to be a hit with music lovers everywhere. VidZone’s service allows PS3 owners to watch the best new music videos for free (yes, free, we had to read that twice too!) on their PS3, or streamed to their PSP via Remote Play.
VidZone is one of Europe’s leading online music video services, streaming a full playlist of videos from hip-hop to punk and heavy metal to classics. Music lovers can build their own playlists and personalise their VidZone experience to be whatever they choose. All these features and more will be included in the PS3 service, including the option to download songs, music videos and ringtones to a mobile phone for a small charge.
SCEE will be launching a comprehensive film, TV and music download service at a later date.
