Sony bringing music telly to PS3, PSP

VidZone launches this summer.

Sony will let PS3 owners stream music videos to their console this summer, using a totally rad new service called VidZone. Mega.

This contemporary-sounding application will be free and appear on the XMB once downloaded from the PS Store. We're promised a stonking selection from both major and independent music labels alike, covering not only music videos, but behind-the-scenes, making-of and live concert footage as well. Yes, expect the latest chart hits from the likes of C&C Music Factory!

These can be individually streamed or saved into playlists, and manipulated by fast-forwarding or rewinding. Videos can even be transferred onto PSP so you can pop the handheld on your shoulder and bop along as you pump up your favourite jam.

VidZone, however, will only be available in the UK, Ireland, France, Italy, Germany, Spain and Australia. Psych!
