Future Publishing has closed its on-console PS3 video magazine FirstPlay to make way for a new, free show.
The new show – which is currently unnamed – will be free to eligible UK PSN account holders.
It will be ‘aligned with SCE UK’s Access to PlayStation community strategy,’ and will be reporting from the Access events. It will feature HD previews, interviews and cover upcoming PS3 games and Blu-ray films. Gamers will be able to download the show from PSN.
FirstPlay launched last year and its last episode was released on July 6th.
We went a long way very quickly with FirstPlay and this new phase in our partnership with PlayStation will allow us to take HD video magazine content to the next level,” said Future’s entertainment group publisher Simon Maxwell.
Production on the new show is well under way and editorial standards are impeccably high. We’re looking forward to providing SCE UK with top-quality video content for more PlayStation gamers than ever before.”
SCE UK’s marketing chief Alan Duncan adds: This is a great content initiative which forms a key part of SCEUK’s strategy to reward and engage with our consumers in a more meaningful way.”
