The new YouTube app is optimised for PlayStation 3 controls and gives access to YouTube community features.
The PS3's new YouTube app lets you use your smartphone as a remote for YouTube videos.
The PS3 has a solid collection of streaming-video apps, but the lack of a dedicated YouTube app has always been a conspicuous omission.
That ends today, in the US at least, with Sony and Google rolling out a new YouTube app for the PlayStation 3. The new app features a big-screen-friendly layout, with controls optimised for the PS3's controller. You'll be able to log-in to your YouTube account, giving you access to your subscribed channels and other YouTube community features.
There's also an option to use your smartphone as a controller for the app, letting you take a video you're watching on your phone and "push" it up to your HDTV.
The app hasn't show up on CNET's PS3 yet, so we haven't had any hands-on time with it, but YouTube says it should be rolling out today. There is no word on when it will be arriving in Australia.
