YouTube Developing for Next-Gen Consoles

YouTube is developing a "TV experience" for next-generation consoles. In a job listing on Google Jobs, the company advertises that it's hiring a Game Console Software Engineer to develop "versions of YouTube to work with next generation game consoles." (Next-Gen)

Hopefully it wont come with a monthly fee.. Hulu was free but now their doing monthly fees. Thats what im scared of

I doubt it, Google already makes enough money with the partnership program on there.

You never know though, anything could happen.

I hope the next MS console will actually have a browser this time around.

Google is getting greedier by the minute I wouldn't be surprised if they eventually started charging.

Dante, sadly if they do it'll be IE though. If Sony picks up Chrome for their next browser, I would HEAVILY consider switching or at least getting a PS4 because of it.

No way it will happen.
Hulu streams tv shows and such. While youtube are mostly users generated content.

Google currently has Google TV, don't they? Google currently owns YOUTUBE don't they?
That doesn't sound like a "no way" or impossible situation to me, dark-hollow.
dark-hollow  +   833d ago
so? that has nothing to do with what i said, besides, google will introduce a new feature that allow you to make your videos pay-per-view so that TV shows can make it payable into youtube but that doesnt mean all youtube content will.

youtube popularity depends on the users videos.
without them, youtube is basically dead!
people are cool with paying to watch actual movies and tv shows,

but who gonna pay to watch ray william johnson?
Persistantthug  +   832d ago
dark-hollow...Right, but I think that you're thinking about this in a very narrow viewed perspective
For example,
occasionally YOUTUBE has been known to host actual studio movies...some independent ones & a few big budget ones.

I've also seen TV shows hosted from ABC, CBS and NBC before.

So what's to stop Google from running a YOUTUBE premium service alongside its free service?

Again, there is no such thing as a 'no way' situation here.

Hopefully it runs a lot faster than what it currently does on PS3, and better yet is usable at anytime. ie. Playing a game, transferring files, watching a movie etc.

to have youtube already on my next gen console would be awesome.

Sony will probably license the cheapest and worst Web Browser in the market yet again, so yeah, not on PS4 I'm guessing.
BitbyDeath  +   833d ago
I think the Web Browser has so many issues because of the limited RAM available for it.

Nextgen should fix that... hopefully
Ingram  +   833d ago
I think not.
It's high speed XDR, and 256 should be enough for a strong browser.Even a second generation blackberry works better.

It's the Netfront browser what's at fault, that thing was designed for 2003 PDA's and hasn't changed much since then, go figure.
BitbyDeath  +   833d ago
I don't believe the web browser has access to all that memory but rather just the OS portion which had been set aside for it.
Ingram  +   833d ago
I know what you mean and I agree, you're right.

Netfront is garbage though.
FlameBaitGod  +   833d ago
at least i can still watch tv shows, movies, anime and pron for free. Cant say that about 360, see i can troll too LOSER! NOW GTFO! :D!

youtube on via ps3 can be awful "IF" you frequent the normal YT. It gets marginally better when ps3youtube(dot)com is used. (and the comments are easier to read)

Youtube for next gen hardware? hell yeah!. I have my tablet that can browse videos on youtube!!
