Sony has confirmed that a dedicated YouTube App for PlayStation 3 will be released in North America as part of this week's PlayStation Store update.
You'll find it under the 'My Channels' section of the store when the update hits later on today.
The app opens up a whole new viewing experience for YouTube fanatics, as detailed below via the U.S. PlayStation Blog:
-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 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.

Awesome news! A few years later than it should have been, but I'll take it....wish they would do a proper Pandora app as well....so much opportunity in 'apps' now-a-days.

I'll be happy if it just doesn't play in the lowest quality possible. It looks horrible on my TV and embarrassing compared to 360's YouTube app.

Hopefully it'll be better than the 360's app.
