- Today VidZone's Head of Production Ben Creasey
is here with this week's VidZone PS3 update, dubbed "Summer for Some, Winter for Most."
To quote: Sometimes we forget (sometimes on purpose) that our southern hemisphere brethren have got some good weather going on while we have to sit here freezing our (Insert body part here) off.
Because of this, we have to try to get artificially summery to give you all videos that remind us of the summer. So all the winter crew have a respite from all the depressing winteriness that has invaded our lives, and all you summer crew have a soundtrack to accompany the shining sun.
Straight to the point... Update details... HO!
