Oooh what a big update we have for you this week! It’s been an extremely busy time at VidZone HQ recently in preparing some truly excellent content for all of you. And so we’re pleased to not only present some of the hottest new music videos around including the latest soon-to-break-the-internet smash from Psy, BUT finally bring you a BRAND NEW ZONE in celebration of the best hip-hop and RnB and more specifically the 30th Anniversary of Def Jam Recordings!

Artist Of The Week: Psy

Everyone’s favorite South Korean pop star Psy is back with ‘Hangover’, his follow-up single to ‘Gentleman’ and the worldwide smash ‘Gangnam Style’.

when will VidZone have audio quality that matches Music Unlimited?

when will the VidZone video quality match videos from the PlayStation Video store? I don’t expect 1080p videos for videos from the 1980s, but it would be nice if the bitrates were consistent across Son’t different services?

any plans to allow adding a VidZone song to a Music Unlimited playlist and vice versa?

For this being a free service that people forget this can’t have the same level of service as a paid service that’s just common sense. But on another note I like the continued support for vidzone which is sensational!!!!!!!!!!
