It’s been one of the most requested applications for the PS Vita and Sony have finally announced that it will be arriving in “late June”. It will be available as a free download on the PS Vita’s PlayStation Store.
“With the YouTube application on PS Vita, you can watch millions of YouTube channels and videos on the stunning 5″ OLED screen, from comedy to gaming tips to today’s viral trends,” says the press release. “The YouTube application features many of the functions you’re already familiar with – you can easily search for videos, choose favorites and make comments.”
“Your personal YouTube account is available right on your PS Vita by logging into your account, you can access your channel subscriptions to watch videos from your favourite creators.”
The announcement also says that Sony will be continuing to introduce “more unique, social and immersive experiences” specially for the PS Vita throughout the year.
The one caveat to the YouTube announcement is that, as is reasonable, it will only be available in “YouTube serviced territories” within the SCEE region.
Those territories are Australia, Belgium, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Hungary, India, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Netherlands, New Zealand, Poland, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, United Arab Emirates and the United Kingdom.
