Tom Cotter, head of games at Telewest Broadband, said: “As we promised at E3, the trials have started before Christmas and we’re very excited to be embarking on this project.
“The Telewest Broadband PlayStation 2 network will, for the first time, establish protocols for networked games, making the development of these titles much more straightforward. Telewest Broadband is investing heavily in the PlayStation 2 service; believe me, this will be multiplayer gaming and broadband access integrated like never before.”
Nainan Shah, Director of Business Development, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe added: "The Telewest PS2 Broadband Service will lead the way in connecting PlayStation 2 consumers on powerful broadband networks. We expect the service to offer a plug-and-play experience for multiplayer gaming, downloading of game demos and other content as well as news and reviews presented in way that PlayStation 2 consumers have not experienced before."
Telewest Broadband will be unveiling more details of its PlayStation 2 network in early 2002.
