VIDZONE UPDATE: Tis the Season to… Watch Music Videos

Falalalala la la la la… Now it’s December, there are no excuses left to let the festive goodness of Christmas run through your veins. Don’t worry, Christmas not your thing? That’s why new VidZone is so great, we have a brand new Zone dedicated to Christmas, but if you don’t like it, find another that you do!

Obviously that’s not all we have that’s new, there is a whole raft of new VIP playlists from the likes of Justice and Darwin Deez as well as updated RnB and Alternative Zones. On a personal note, can you all please go and watch the new Duck Sauce video… It’s the best music video we have seen in ages, and as you can imagine, we see a lot! (If you are easily offended, you should probably give it a miss though)

Hi Ben,
Just wanted to say that this application is fantastic!

I use it more now, with the recent update.

Keep up to good work & thank all the team :)

    Hi Catkiller1

    Thank you for your kind words. all we wanted was for people to use it more so our plan has worked!

 

There is still no Solarstone, the recording company you need to contact is Solaris Recordings in case you didn’t know.

 

O.O Ben I have just saw it epic video but I think I am scarred for life now.

How about a nice bit of Kate Rusby? Essential Christmas listening. :)

 

Lol must be one of the weirdest thing I have ever seen…. Doh I could not find it on Vidzone (Sweden). Searched for it and tryied to find it in the latest.

 
almighty-slayer 1 December, 2011 @ 4:59 pm   16

Thanks as always Ben

 
maddogarchie64 1 December, 2011 @ 5:44 pm   17

vidzones certainly getting better, but there is one small thing that is annoying me, whenever I listen to a song that starts off with some guitar, when another instrument comes in it goes quieter, it’s a bit annoying

 
DNAtlantic 1 December, 2011 @ 6:08 pm   18

Awesome update indeed! Giddy! It’s nearly christmas again :D Best time of the year! Close second summer :P

Ben said: “Told you it was weird…”

That is an understatement!!!!!! It’s also eerie and creepy.

O/X buttons swap bug
My second e-mail sent to ps-problems@vidzone.tv
Hello again,
Here is an e-mail to notice you that VidZone, unlike many software, has the O/X confirm/cancel buttons swap bug on asian PS3.
Those asian PS3 have O for Confirm and X for Cancel.
But VidZone is not reading and using this setting, the buttons are swapped
(X for Confirm and O for Cancel, like european PS3).

Here is a short explanation, in case it can be clearer than what I above said : http://miaou.ions.fr/en/psn-ps3-ox-buttons.html

Thank you for your concern, I would appreciate receiving updates on this bug.
Tristan (PSNID patate12)

Titchy_Penguin 1 December, 2011 @ 9:06 pm   21

i agree disturbing is a better word than weird

SamTheSkater 1 December, 2011 @ 9:22 pm   22

I still want a Punk Zone.

mobilbasse1234 1 December, 2011 @ 9:40 pm   23

bssse

 

the only time i ever use vidzone is when i have friends round and i cant be bothered sticking stuff on for them to listen to(when i dont have people here im to busy gaming :) )
but i like the new app and think its so much better than the old one and its a great addition to the ps3.

it be good if you guys could work on some kind of app that brings lots of the free to view web content thats available out there on to the ps3 as you guys have done such a great job with this app

“Tis the Season to… Watch Music Videos”

Well, not for Poland, lol.

shedboy90 2 December, 2011 @ 8:00 am   26

@coomoo
honestly give it a rest about poland
if poland was going to get it it would have been announced already

When Poland?

 

isn’t Vidzone Australian?

if so

where is Teenager, PNAU, more Midnight Juggarnauts please and OMG the most important Aussie band ever TISM is missing from your vid list – This Is Serious Mum put them on there now o.O

 

Sorry it still isn’t the season to watch music videos, at least not here in Poland.

oh man i cant use this service in my contry region romania too bad

 

My ps3 can’t download and update the new version of vidzone. It shutdowns and restarts everytime I press X to OK the update the new version. Suck.

    Hi Maddymad

    Sorry to hear this. If you delete the application and re download from the store, this should then work. Unfortunately if you have any saved play-lists, it will delete them. We are working on a fix for this but if you haven’t got any play lists then go for the above. If not can you email ps-problems@vidzone.tv and we will try a few more things to fix it.

I think you need to check what adverts your playing on Vidzone Ben. I found it odd that you have a advert for Professor Layton for the Nintendo DS on Vidzone. I didn’t think Sony would be advertising handhelds for a rival company, why you don’t advertise the Vita or PSP I don’t know, it would make more sense then advertising a rival handheld on Vidzone.
