Sony Computer Entertainment Europe has spelt out the firm's plans for PlayStation 2 online gaming this week, with senior veepee of development Phil Harrison telling the press that UK trials with Telewest will take place in November and December. The PlayStation 2's hard disk/communications device could be bundled as part of subscription-based online services, he further revealed. Telewest seem to have their brains about them with regards to gaming. Instead of attempting to make money directly from it, they appear to be using it to help encourage new user signups to the broadband cable modem service they provide in certain areas of the country. The Telewest BlueYonder gaming service for PC users will launch late next month. Related Feature - Telewest in Playstation alliance with Sony
