YouTube app for PlayStation 3 lets you watch videos on the console, controlled by your Android phone
PlayStation 3 owners can find the new YouTube app in the PlayStation Store under My Channels. And no, they don't have to use their Android phone to view the videos, but the combination of the UI on the game console added to the less than intuitive game controller will probably have you reaching for your Android smartphone whenever you take that break from your gaming to watch videos.

I really want this on Xbox... Good thing I have both PS3 and Xbox, or I would be missing out. :D

I have both as well, so I don't know why you would choose the Xbox 360 over the PS3 to watch ANY video. Video on the 360 blows, everything is down converted to 720p and then stretched to whatever resolution you are using, deinterlacing sucks, remote sucks, etc. Anyway as you can see I'm not a fan of the video capabilities of my Xbox, such a waste

True. The only thing I particularly liked about the 360's video was that netflix allowed you to stretch letterboxed (widescreen or normal) content so it takes the fullscreen, but the last dashboard update also triggered a netflix update, which killed that feature and also made the UI of the Netflix terrible, to more closely match the terribleness of the new dashboard. So now I use PS3 netflix all the way and only use the 360s if PSN goes down or something.

I just hope its not as terrible and bad as the XBOX's Youtube app. What a waste of time!

Great idea MS should really use this as "inspiration"
