It was at the end of last month when we brought you word that YouTube, the world’s most popular video sharing website, will finally make its way to Sony’s latest iteration on what they think is the future of handheld gaming – the PS Vita. Well, we are glad to say that YouTube for PS Vita is now available as an app, and it fully intends to push the PS Vita’s high-definition and 3G capabilities to the edge. This is a free download over at the PS Vita Store on PSN, where you now have yet another avenue to enjoy millions of YouTube videos on the 5” OLED display. 3G connectivity ensures you no longer need to be confined to just a Wi-Fi network, as you can download your videos on-the-go.
Among the key features in YouTube for PS Vita include the list of recommended videos from YouTube to help you discover new videos that are aligned with your tastes, the all important search function, a viewing history, as well as the ability to add in videos to your Favorites list. You can opt to view videos in either full screen or small screen modes, where the former has a control panel displayed for you to expand or minimize the video, while there will also be an HD button that appears on high definition (up to 720p) videos, allowing you to toggle between HD and SD.
