The PS3 will get a proper YouTube app once the PlayStation Store updates at some point today. It’ll be located under the “My Channels” section of the XMB as a free download. YouTube says this app has been optimized for the PS3 and large televisions.

Based on the screenshot that was posted on the YouTube Blog, we know this app will look nothing like the desktop website or the apps for iOS and Android. However, we’ll still be able to sign in with our Google accounts to pull down our subscriptions.

Another added feature is the ability to use a smartphone as a YouTube remote. This feature will let us navigate the PS3 YouTube app with the phone and beam videos to the big screen.
