New YouTube App for PlayStation 3 Available Today in North America (Free)
Finally, the Playstation 3 gets a YouTube app! I’ve been wanting this for months. Over the last two years, the YouTube XL & Native (the removed mobile function, sad) have been TERRIBLE. YouTube XL is terrible, always have been. It renders weird, no control over the resolution. Perhaps, it was better when I still have a Tube TV, which was the last time I enjoyed it. Then, they removed buttons/functions on the media player when you use YouTube Proper aka Desktop Version (Native). So that was a terrible experience too. I’ll be sure to check this out
With that behind us, this new experience better be rewarding. One cool feature that I’ve already read about is the ability to use your smart phone to control the PS3 YouTube App. Another feature added is the ability to see your subscriptions & a proper search functionality.
Something that I did not read, and I actually want… UPLOAD :)

- Your phone as a remote: With a quick pairing process, you can control YouTube on PS3 with a smartphone. Find a video on your phone and with a button it’ll play on the big screen. While the video is playing you can control it from the phone, or keep browsing YouTube for the next one.
You’ll find the new app in the PlayStation Store under My Channels. We’ll keep improving the PS3 experience and plan to bring the app to more countries in coming months.
