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.

PS3_YouTube

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!

  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.

  12. I was just using it and i am confused.
    What exactly was wrong with either youtubeXL or youtube.com on the web browser, and why can’t I get to youtube.com on the web browser anymore? This version of youtube is very irritating and does not allow for half the search and save options the other forms allow. Additionally the playback is slow and choppy, unless I plug in the Ethernet cable into the playstation. If they decide to keep this going at least allow everyone the opportunity to use youtube on the web browser.

  13. Complete P.O.S. Right off the bat, I keep getting playback errors for every video I try to watch using this app. Nice work…instead of an upgrade, I get no You Tube at all.

  14. Tried this app out last nite, and I must say it’s pretty sick! I love the fact that I can use Tubemate on my Android device to play video’s on my TV. My biggest rave is HD finally, I can finally watch youtube in all it’s glory on my HDTV! If you have a PS3 and internet, this is the best way to check out youtube.
