A new YouTube app has been released for PS3 which has been specially designed for the system. Unlike any other YouTube app I've ever seen, this one is pretty minimal and is made for easy browsing using your DualShock3 Controller.
To get around the UI you simple use the D-pad to go up, down or across. You can sign in with your own account too so you can keep up with your suscriptions. Content discovery is available through all the main categories available. Search can quickly be accessed by pressing the triangle button.
The app doesn't just have to controlled from the controller though. You can now control the app from your smartphone. You simply pair up your device with the system. Once paired you can browse for videos and control playback all from your device.
The app should be available to download now in the following countries: Australia, Belgium, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, India, Israel, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, New Zealand, Poland, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Russia and the United Kingdom. You'll find it under the "My Channels" part of the XMB and comes in at 22MB in size.
