PlayStation Vita's Nico Nico video app will be getting some company next month. Sony's US PlayStation Blog announced today that a YouTube app will be released for the system as a free download in June.
Yes now all the CRY BABYS can SHUT UP!
Does anyone actually complain about the lack of youtube video support on a portable gaming device? Don't they have some Uncharted, Gravity Rush or Wipeout to play? Those people should buy some games and stop crying. Gamers nowadays... @Dir_en_grey Yeah, I know it's cool but we knew it was coming someday, people need to relax. I saw a lot of threads/topics in various forums complaining about it and they should waste their time playing games. I need 15+ hours for my platinum trophy in Gravity Rush so I can't see myself creating topics/threads complaing about this kind of feature and wasting my time for something I know that is coming. But yes, I understand you.
The thing is you can already download youtube vids now straight from Vita. People can just google it, it's a script site you bookmark and you can download vids even at 720p.
Crybabies? Hardly. How were we supposed to watch YouTube videos if not on a PS Vita? Go on. Name one single thing that can play a YouTube video. You can't, because they don't exist. Fact. Until now, YouTube videos were not playable on anything. PS Vita will be the first, and therefore, all the crying about it was perfectly justified. I can't wait to watch YouTube for the first time.
Yes cuz wanting something=crying
Lmao so true. Though this is definitely a welcome addition. Good news for Vita owners.
I think ppl should wine and cry about it. Whether its complaining about lack of apps on ps vita or paying for xbox live. Or ps3 web browser being slow. Gamers should cry to the companies, send emails, go on their website and complain etc.
Though not official, that solution sir has been done for the PS3 years ago. Please follow the instructions here: http://www.ps3youtube.com/ Enjoy HD YouTube videos using your PS3.
I will not stop my crying untill its available in Finland! And yes Finland Norway Denmark are "Youtube serviced countries" Again im very disapointed to SCEE, they will propably say next: We are very sorry...soon blablablaa Sorry for my bad English
what was the issue of the vita playing youtube (or lack of) in the first place? Was it a flash thing or perhaps html5 thing? It certainly doesnt seem to be a hardware thing as my galaxy s2 can play youtube and that would seem to be an inferior platform to the vita (at least for games).
@Hisiru Not necessarily gamers, just people that want something to do something that other somethings can do. Not to actually use said something for what that something was meant for, and in this case games... Its people in general... But yes, I hope this does shut people up... But then again, they'll find something to cry about eventually...
I think youre totally right. But Gravity Rush is awesome, one of the best games I played this year, they should play the game instead of crying for the lack of a feature they can have on their PCs/Smartphones (and it's also a feature we knew was coming someday, can't people be patient?).
Yeah Gravity Rush is amazing, and I only played the demo. It even felt as if it was a small portion of an actual home console game which was adding on to the amazing. And to think that the best is yet to come, is something that people should consider on thinking about. Instead of waiting around for simple apps that can grant them the ability to watch the same videos they can see on the phone/ipod/pc/tablets... Pfftt, right now Im in it for the games, anything else added is more frosting on top of the ready-to-go birthday cake... The more the merrier, I say... (And no, I don't think some people have the bone that makes them patient)
@one2thr All I can say to you (withou spoilers of the story/gameplay elements) is that the full version is MUCH better than the demo (and yes, the demo is awesome).
HURRAH FOR BOOBIES
finally the people b**tching can stop complaining. i bought the system to play games not watch youtube.
@raiinstorm81 just wanted to explain why I was the first to disagree , u said the word finally, its not like we have been waiting that long, plus there is that unofficial youtube app to use while waiting and also people have smartphones aswell, just my opinion bra
Thisl shut up alot of people that were complaining about this :p
i just want all my psn psp/psone dl's available on My Vita
See what happens when you are patient? We are getting more game and more apps these days.Maybe it will stop the complainers but the whiners will just find something else to gripe about.
OK, let's move on to the next complain
Lol, exacly ;o).... WHY NO PS2 games on VITA !!!
See good things happen to those who wait. So another complaint down...how many more do we have now before complainers will finally in the immortal words of Dr.Evil... "Zip IT!!"
what about flash support for videos not on youtube !!! And Ps1 games . EDIT** I know iphone doesnt have flash but i can watch videos there that i cant watch on my vita and if they do have a quicktime player like the iphone then i will be happy
Never enough, huh?
Adobe doesnt want to spend time supporting mobile devices with flash capabilities anymore. So in this case its up to Sony to figure out a work around for your dilemma...
Nope i dont care about youtube , Mobile doesnt even have all the videos you can find on youtube.com . I just want to be able to watch the same videos i can on my iphone not on youtube
iPhone doesn't support Flash either...
Now give us a YouTube PS3 app with HD vids.
Would rather see another update to the browser. If not a wholly new one that has HD support.
Now the whiners can finally shit up and they can stop using the lack of a youtube app as a pathetic reason to not get a Vita. Anyways I never complained about the Vita not being able to play youtube videos but it's nice that they will release an app. The only thing they have left to do is to improve the web browser so thers no checkerboard effect. XperiaRay
This would greatly shut the whiners up, but not for long until they find another thing to bitch about.
Then the PSOclassics...
It was only a matter of time. Same goes for all the other stuff we want. Just be patient.
yay for youtube! :D
I dont really care about YouTube i can use it on my phone. it's more games that are lacking on this machine.
Fantastic. Now all we need is flash support. Get to it Sony! :D
Sadly, Flash is dying - with HTML5 just around the corner bringing a new standard H264 or Webm.
Good now people can move on to the next thing to moan about. Loving the vita
Can we all complain about Portal 2 and Fallout NV next for the Vita. If the complaints are eventually getting through, these would be next on my list to get through haha
Complaining is a virtue for some ;o)...
Good news that more apps are coming for Vita, although I personally can't imagine watching many YouTube vids on mine. If I'm at home or at a friends house I'd rather use a laptop, and if I'm out I'll always have my phone with me. I guess it's nice having another option though, and that screen IS beautiful.
I agree. I already got a smartphone, a netbook, a notebook connected to my flatscreen...but it is a good option, for those who will actually use it ;o)... and as you say, the screen is amazing !!!
Nice - but I hope it's developed by the same guys who did LiveTweet and NOT the guys who did the Facebook app :D
Oh yes, now make it compatible with psone games and my life would be complete.
While this is better than nothing I would much rather have seen a decent browser uppdate, so that I am not limited to youtube videos only. The app better support all Youtube vidos and play them in the best quality for the VITA using the screens full resolution at HQ settings. That would be slick!
People bitching about the people that are bitching no Youtube on Vita.... I bet you all will be downloading that shit the minute it's available. The fact is, Vita should have launched with Youtube/Hulu support. We all know the main purpose of Vita, but how is it possible that my 3 years old cell phone is the more capable multimedia device than my Vita? The games are what's important, but wouldn't it be nice to upload a few videos of those games, straight to Youtube. Stop making excuses for Sony's shortcomings.... It's sickening.
Who's making excuses? Sony said it would be there, and here it comes. You act like it's been a few years since the promises were made. Will I be downloading it? Yep, cuz it's useful. Doesn't change the fact that so many people are complaining about every little thing. The best handheld ever is getting better, and people have nothing to say but, "I want this next!" or "Why wasn't it there from the start?" And while your three year old cellphone may be the more capable multimedia device, you and I both know it isn't- and never will be- the more capable gaming device. The Vita could/should have launched with everything. But it didn't. And it was still a great value out of the box. And it's only getting better. Why is it sickening to appreciate the Vita?
SUPER AWESOME!!! Now just update the vita to have folders for my many MANY apps & im happy.. Vita is the best handheld system ever made & i say that to ppl who are too blind to see its beauty.. The system is worth the money but the memory is a kick in the balls.. Viva Vita & if u dislike my comment, u suck
Sadly it will not be available in Finland :/
Youtube in 1080P
So there will be no Flash/HTML5? Great job. I also love how they exclude many european countries. People who payed 250€ like I did cannot have a simple app like this one, lol.
Yep. You are totally right I paid 330€ for the console memorycard and one game and I cannot do simple things like use html5 or flash ,view pdf files, use email or copy-paste in my browser. My 120€ Android can do that and much more. I know that PS vita is gaming device but people also wants apps. And when they relase one app its not available cause I live in some poor country. Execuse my bad English
"So there will be no Flash/HTML5? Great job." Can you give them time to finish the extra's that are not game related, they are bringing software out as fast as they can. 1st of all the freaking PSVita's Browser is HTML :5 based. Give them some time There is not one real reason why the PSVita cannot handle Flash...so where is full flash for the PSVita..Oh i don't know ask freaking Adobe!! Adobe kills Flash on mobile devices notice the freaking date people Updated 11/9/2011 5:53 PM http://www.usatoday.com/tec... before the PSvita ever was released Ask scream, plead threaten Adobe with a boycott to bring Flash over to the PSvita...lol people tend to blame Sony for the most asinine thing's they have no real control over!
