YouTube, it's here...nearly

14 Replies 432 Views Created 01-06-2012

Hi everyone! PS Vita was developed with the idea of creating and delivering compelling content for gamers. With the recent announcements of applications such as nico nicoTreasure Park, Wake-up Club, and Skype, we’re continuing to build out PS Vita’s portfolio of applications. Today, we’re very excited to announce the latest application addition to PS Vita – YouTube!

 

Coming at the end of June, YouTube will be available as a free downloadable application for PS Vita via the PS Vita Store. With the YouTube application on PS Vita, you can watch millions of YouTube videos on the stunning 5” OLED screen, from comedy to gaming tips to today’s viral trends. The YouTube application features many of the functions you’re already familiar with – you can easily search for videos, choose favorites and make comments, and your personal YouTube account is available right on your PS Vita.

I just hope it lets you play the 720p versions of stuff because everything uploaded lately seems to be very blocky.  I think YouTube have screwed up the video encoding.

Re: YouTube, it's here...nearly

Below is a Signature



Sony are stabbing their loyal family customers in the back - We have 3 PS3s and 3 PSPs all on the same IP address and all registered with Sony. Why can't we use them at the same time anymore?

You can see many countries are excluded, such as mine.

Re: YouTube, it's here...nearly

Yeah, cos of course comparing a phone with a portable gaming console is perfectly logical.
