PS Vita Owners - Say Goodbye To YouTube


Recommended Posts

  • GregoryRasputin

If you have recently bought a PS Vita and haven't yet downloaded the YouTube app, do so now, as Sony are no longer giving support to the application.

 The app will no longer be available to download after today, also being removed are the Map and Near applications, they will be disabled in an upcoming PS Vita firmware, due to be released in March, here are screenshots of the help pages on the official US PlayStation website:

Providing Sony's website hasn't been hacked and someone has done this to troll, this is the dumbest decision Sony have made in regards to the PS Vita, since they decided to release the PlayStation TV.

To difficult to implant HTML5 in stead of Flash for $ony ??

 

But one more reason to hack the thing and decide for ourselves what is on the Vita and what is not ;)

Commodore CDTV --> First console with a CD player ever :heart:

(my CDTV has a 68030, 2mb chip- and 4mb fastram, VGA output, floppy emu with USB and can also boot from SCSI CF card :P)

AmigaOne X1000 --> fastest consumer PPC computer for now...

The answer is, how could it else be..... money (Oh noh's, not again....)

 

The news today is $ony starts a new music service with Spotify, named PlayStation Music.... People watch music with YouTube, so best financial thing is..... Kill YouTube on $ony devices....

well with the mass features already available for the Vita, you can't ask for everything. Sure they take one feature away but they will replace it with numerous games and features to make up for it.

Sony devices are the only devices that I can think of that lose features over time. I really wanted a PS TV before they were available in the US.... I am glad I waited. Everything about that device has been a lie.

 

I am still waiting to see what kind of douchebaggary Sony will try and pull with the PS4 before the end of its life cycle.

Started with removal of OtherOS and has been downhill since then.

 

Sad thing is, it seems to work.  The more they take away, the more dumbass fanbois they acquire.

It is never ok when you take features away. With this logic I am still waiting for them to add features to the PS3 to replace otherOS.... oh yeah that's right. I have to strongly disagree with this post. The vita has a lack of features so it is not cool to be taking the few things that the vita does have. First Sony lies about what the vita can/will do, and now they are removing features. They could release 100 games, and 100 apps tomorrow, but to many of us it will never be ok that Sony removes features. Sony consoles.... the only consoles to lose things instead of gain them through the course of their respective life cycles.

 

Mass features? My phone can do more than the vita can (except play the few games I would want to play that are exclusive to the vita)

 

Can't ask for everything? I don't feel like we are asking too much to keep the stuff that was already given to us.

 

Numerous games and features? Do you mean the stuff that was promised to us before launch? If so we are still waiting on a lot of that shit.

 

As far as youtube goes, I wonder if we will still be able to access it through the browser. Youtube uses HTML5 by default so the lack of flash shouldn't be a problem. I feel like we should let sony know what we think (even if it does no good) By us remaining voiceless, they will continue to think that removing stuff is ok, but it really isn't

Don't start shit, there won't be shit

Cant you just access youtube with the Vita's browser, maybe add a bookmark if you visit the site often.

stomp_442 that is what they say in the openingpost / pressrelease / FAQ

:::

Users can continue to enjoy YouTube via the "Browser" application, and will be able to access their YouTube data, such as playlists and channels, by signing in to the same Google account via the "Browser" app and on other devices. (http://m.youtube.com)

I will ignore the big sarcasm/troll flag... and ask you to answer these simple 3:

/ps4/Removed ; ps3/Removed ; Vita/Removed

  • why is does a Sony console always come with a "Removed" wiki page
  • what new console unique games/features?
  • are you from this universe? are you on drugs?

Started with removal of S-Video port after the launch in Japan of SCPH-1000 and has been downhill since then.

Since the dawn of time my friend, since the dawn of time.
