Here’s a handy breakdown of just who went live and when.

Another nugget dropped during the Sony speech yesterday (although this time on Twitter), popular music video service VidZone is set to stretch its musical wings and launch across numerous European countries before the year is out.
Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Norway, New Zealand, Belgium, Netherlands, Luxembourg, Austria, Switzerland and Portugal are all about to get Sony’s answer to MTV.
If MTV still played music that is.
VidZone has secured a timed exclusivity for two brand new music videos from Placebo’s latest album; Battle For The Sun.
The two tracks, ‘The Never Ending Why’ and ‘Ashtray Heart’, will be available for everyone to watch for the first time this Wednesday, and follows recent exclusives from U2 and The Prodigy.
We have always thought of VidZone as a valueable and popular element of the PlayStation 3′s media capabilities for the seven countries that support it.
Now we have proof on how popular the service is after …
VidZone aren’t satisfied with one exclusive video as they have acquired another, this time in the form of the new Prodigy video called “Take Me to the Hospital”.
So it’s now time to sync our watches and be ready for 6pm BST or 7pm CET on the 4th of August for when the video, and hopefully others as well, go live on the music video streaming service on the PlayStation 3.
We’ve been waxing lyrical about VidZone since it launched on the PS3, what with the fact that it is free, contains thousands of music videos and is being updated every week with hundreds more.
But now VidZone has taken the first step towards becoming a real benefit to sales of the PS3 thanks to gaining the first exclusive showing of U2′s latest video.
Ever wondered exactly how much those VidZone videos are eating at your internet connection? Many people these days, particularly from some countries in Europe, have bandwidth limits on their internet from small to large.
They can be a real pest and ISPs often demand additional payments for every GB that users go over.
We love Vidzone, and we know that there are a lot of other people who like it too. In fact the team behind the service are fully aware of this and that’s why they want pictures of you guys enjoying the free music video service.
On their @VidZone twitter account, the developers had this to say…
Vidzone is a welcome addition to the six countries that support it from the PAL territory and it offers console owners something never seen before – free, legal and easy access to high quality music videos.
When we first heard about the application coming to Europe last year, it sounded very impressive but as with many new concepts, nobody knew if it could live up to the high expectation behind it.
