Sony Computer Entertainment Europe has partnered with YouTube to release a new application optimised for the PlayStation 3. The YouTube app allows PS3 owners to sign-in and see subscribed channels, search using new tools and control the app using a smartphone. Official music videos are also included when viewing channel subscriptions, a feature previously unavailable.
The YouTube app is available in YouTube Serviced Territories where the PlayStation Store is also available, including Australia.
PlayStation 3 owners who wish to access the app can download it free of cost via the XMB, under the TV/Video Services icon in ‘My Channels’.
Earlier this month, Sony released a 45-second teaser video suggesting the company will make a significant announcement on February 20 at 6 p.m. EDT. The "PlayStation Meeting" will be taking place in New York, according to an invite sent to GameSpot by Sony. The Wall Street Journal has speculated that the event will serve as the official unveiling of the PlayStation 4.
