Interactive Show, FirstPlay, Announced For PSN In UK
The PlayStation Network will soon get another unique piece of content, freshly announced today.
As reported by CVG, the Official PlayStation Magazine will launch a weekly high-definition interactive show on the PSN, called "FirstPlay." Providing users with a mixture of TV and online features, this show will offer reviews, previews, Featured Downloads, highlights, screenshots and more, produced by the OPM team and TV experts from Sky and the BBC. There's a preview video through the link above and the show will be on the PSN every Thursday (typical day for updates) and cost either 99p per viewing or £8.99 for a three month subscription. Said SCE UK boss Ray Maguire:
"As PlayStation 3 moves the gaming experience to a more social and competitive online environment through the PlayStation Network, so it becomes critical that we're offering gamers the very best content and services through this channel.
FirstPlay is a great example of this. Future has an outstanding track record in producing content for gamers that is informed, impartial, relevant and with the right production values, so we see them as a natural partner to work with as we move to on-console media development."
FirstPlay will debut in the UK this spring and then come to other European and PAL territories later in the year. There's no evidence of it coming to North America at this time, but if you wish, feel free to visit the official website. See? Gamers across the pond can get some seriously cool stuff, too.
