Summary:

Sick and tired of watching YouTube in your PS3’s browser? Then you’re gonna like this: Sony’s Playstation 3 is finally getting a native YouTube app, complete with all the bells and whistles, including search, your personal subscription queue and second screen navigation.

The wait is finally over: YouTube started rolling out an app for the PS3 Tuesday morning, and owners of the game console who live in North America will be able to download the app through the Playstation 3 store right away.

The rest of the world will have to wait a little longer, with YouTube promising that it will bring the app to additional countries in “the coming months.”

So what does the new app have to offer, aside from a pretty slick UI?

First of all, personalization: You’ll be able to log in using your YouTube credentials and then access your subscriptions, watch list, recommendations, uploads and more.

And you’ll also be able to use your phone or tablet as a remote control, flinging content to the screen after a simple authentication. This type of second-screen action currently only works with Android mobile devices. But, with the recent news that Google is building its own iOS YouTube app, one shouldn’t be too surprised to see similar functionality coming to iPhones and iPads as well.

  1. Cool!

    1. Look under TV/Video services, where you would see Netflix.

  4. With all respect, I hate it. It’s quirky, slow, and much worse than running the ORIGIONAL youtube on the ps3 browser, but you can acess it anymore, no thanks to youtube or ps3 from me. At least lets us still acess youtube, and no youtubeXL crap.
