PlayStation 4 getting native YouTube app this year

Sony surprised E3 watchers today by announcing a native YouTube application for the PlayStation 4, a long awaited addition to the console.
Reads Sony's press release: "Today, we're delighted to announce that YouTube is coming to PS4 this fall! Sharing your greatest gaming moments on YouTube will be a piece of cake on PS4, thanks to the dedicated sharing capabilities at the very heart of PS4. YouTube will officially be one of the social options offered when you press the SHARE button on your DualShock 4. After pressing SHARE, you'll see the YouTube icon pop up alongside Facebook, Twitter, Twitch, and Ustream, and in just a couple of quick steps, you can go from playing your favorite games to publishing videos on your own YouTube channel. You'll also be able to see your friends' shared YouTube videos using the "What's New" feed."



Besides the integrated sharing features, the PS4 YouTube app will give you access to your saved YouTube channels, videos and favorites.
