New native YouTube app headed to Sony PS3 North American PlayStation 3 owners who happen to be fans of YouTube should be happy as the company rolls out its new native application for the console.
As of today, the app is available for free download via the PlayStation Store.

Says YouTube: "You might have watched YouTube on PS3 before, but get ready for a whole new world of video and features. We have a completely new experience, designed for the big screen and PS3 controls. Here's what you'll find:

Search: Finding the videos you want is easier than ever, with search suggestions and instant video results while you type.

Your subscribed channels: Sign in to find the latest videos from your YouTube subscriptions, which now also includes HD and official music videos.

Your phone as a remote: With a quick pairing process, you can control YouTube on PS3 with a smartphone. Find a video on your phone and with a button it'll play on the big screen. While the video is playing you can control it from the phone, or keep browsing YouTube for the next one."


YouTube says the app will be made available to new countries in the coming months.
