YouTube, it's here...nearly

14 Replies 506 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.

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?

Nope, its bad news... horrible news.

 

This means HTML5 will not be on the vita and http://blog.eu.playstation.com/2012/06/01/youtube-coming-to-ps-vita-soon/

 

You can see many countries are excluded, such as mine.
I lol at this 250€ device that cannot even load a stupid video while my 100€ symbian phone can.

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

Its a gaming console with a non perfect webbrowser.

 

I would prefer vita to have all of those working instead of buying a new phone/tablet just to go to youtube.

The Vita was never sold as having the perfect browser, was it? It's sold as a gaming machine that can access the internet - the access required for games is perfect.

Not sure what the obsession is with having a browser on a games console is - probably just something else for the unhappy people of the world to complain about. Quite sure if Sony did sort it, there would be something else for you to have a crying session over.
