    YouTube App for PS3 Lands Today

Give button mashing a whole new meaning with the new YouTube app for PS3, rolling out later today in North America for free from PlayStation Store.


    You might have watched YouTube on PS3 before, but get ready for a whole new world of video and features. We have a completely new experience, designed for the big screen and optimized for the PS3. Here’s what you’ll find:

    • Search: Finding the videos you want is easier than ever, with search suggestions and instant video results while you type.
    • Your subscribed channels: Sign in to find the latest videos from your YouTube subscriptions, which now also includes official music videos.
    • 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.


    With today’s Store publish, 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.

    I've always waited for this.

    Thank god for this.

    Using the browser is horrible, and that damn YouTube XL is pretty shitty.

    That's great news. It's long overdue. As previously mentioned, using Youtube XL was a serious pain in the ass!

    Great for people who look up trophy guides on their PS3. Weird that they put it on Vita before PS3 though.

    Thanks to Bladia for the amazing Sig and Avy.

    I'm downloading it right now. Just like everyone else has mentioned, the PS3 web browser isn't very good, so using YouTube was just a complete pain-in-the-ass.

    So i tried to get on youtube via the browser and it just redirects me to the new app. Which is a pain in the ass to type with using the controller. I'm getting tired of Sony removing stuff from the PS3 and replacing it with stuff not as good or not replacing it at all. 360's are starting to look nice right bout now Sony. /rant

    EDIT: apparently you can still go Videos - YouTube

    Ehh i tried it, the way you type is horrible and laggy, I don't want this in EU until it´s fixed and changed. But if your really despearate getting this then make a USA account and download it there, and it works for every user on the system even the ones that aren't with US Accounts.
