@Candice Haridimou have you guys considered to bring VidZone to PS Vita? I think it would be cool.

Hi @VitalogyPJ

It would be cool indeed! There are no concrete plans as yet but we will let everyone know if this changes. In the mean time in case you weren’t aware, you can use it via remote play on the PS Vita :)

Nice update but when will we find out about the next generation of Vidzone. PS4 next week?
