    Of course, Youtube is much more important then games for Sony.

    Keep those blinkers on Erthazus. News stories from the last week or so … (no comments from you in these for some reason?).

    youtube apps are usually limited……….rather just get a fully functional web browser instead (ie add flash player, and give us pointer controls back, not JUST touch screen)

    @6 you do realize that adobe stop supporting all modile devices with flash right? Also, with the youtube downloader and the app combined your kinda get the best of both worlds. I downloaded like 5 movies to my vita through youtube so to be honest…where theres a will theres a way.

    @7….nope didn’t know that thanks.

    I still wish they’d add a mouse pointer like the psp web browser had, not JUST touch screen which can be frustrating. At least give us the option which to use.
