Get Your Groove On with VidZone Tonight
SCEE's exclusive on-demand music video service for the PS3, VidZone, is downloadable tonight. Thats right tonight! The free service will allow you to stream music videos on demand by streaming them directly to your system. There is a catch though, as you have read this is a SCEE exclusive, meaning US regions will not see VidZone on the PSN Store.
This free application for the PS3 will give you access to music videos on demand as previously stated. It can be found on the PS Store, and then on you music icon on the XMB. This app gives you the ability to watch single videos, or compose a custom playlist. You can rewind and fast-forward with ease. You can also create playlist with your PSP and have them wait for you on your PS3. VidZone has partner up with a major music labels and indies as well. With artists ranging from: Pussycat Dolls, Britney Spears, Fatboy Slim, Black Eyed Peas, Glasvegas, Dizzee Rascal, P!nk, Noisettes, Ne-Yo, Armand van Helden, Tori Amos and Akon, to name a few, VidZone has your back when it comes to getting you music videos.
We don't know when or if we will be able to see this coming to the US, but as noted by Joystiq, you could always get it from a friend, or some work around. "Whether or not Sony has put an IP region lock on the software itself is unknown. We'll find out for sure tomorrow."
