VidZone has hit another major milestone since it was launched back in June 2009. Its taken VidZone exactly five months to rack up another million downloads, bringing the total to over 2 million downloads in total. VidZone is “officially the biggest dedicated music video streaming application in the world”, according to Ben Creasy, Head of Production for VidZone.
Over 200 million videos have been streamed to PS3s since launch. Creasy made the ecstatic announcement over at the PlayStation Blog Europe on New Year’s Eve, and several members of staff also shared their thanks with users:
Louisa Jackson – VidZone for PS3 Chief – “Thanks for all the great feedback in 2009. Lots of surprises in stall 2010!
Nemat Abdela – Account Manger – “Merry Xmas to all you fabulous VidZone users. We’ve got some amazing things in the pipeline in 2010, including more Metal!”

And the big boss (AKA, The Guv’nor) would like to say…
