One of the drawback of the Vita, for all its bells and whistles, is it doesn’t play YouTube clips. There is a work around as seen here on Aussie Gamer will suffice but now there’s news that a YouTube app is inbound for the PS Vita.
The app will be for free and will be available in late June and it comes with all the features that YouTube users have become accustomed to. You’ll be able to log into your account, search, leave comments and heaps more.
That means that this app joins such other Vita apps as Foursquare, Skype and Facebook for social networking. What other apps can you imagine coming out for the PS Vita and do you think it’ll make a difference to sales in Japan?
