Are you affected by the removal of the YouTube App on the PS Vita?

Like you probably already know (or as you’ve just learned from this post’s title), Sony recently announced that they would remove the YouTube app from the PS Vita along with other under-performing apps, namely Near and Maps, in a future software update.

I use the YouTube app on my Vita on a DAILY basis, and one of my friends only boots up his Vita to watch his YouTube subscriptions. I admit that I prefer the Vita version of the YouTube app over the one available on my smartphone.

Once the application is gone, we will still be able to watch YouTube videos in the mobile version through the Vita’s web browser. I tried it, and while it’s not as perfect as the application was, it still was a decent experience. With Netflix, Crunchyroll and PS4 Remote Play, I thought it was somewhat clear that this console was excelling as a streaming device, and it saddens me to see that one of its best apps is going away.

What are your thoughts on the removal of this application? Did you use the application regularly?

Remember that you can still reach the YouTube mobile website by following this link: http://m.youtube.com

[Review Revisited] Super Stardust Delta for the PS Vita

SuperStardust_revrev

Back in 2012, Eddie reviewed the excellent Super Stardust Delta for the PlayStation Vita.

I didn’t have a Vita back in then, but I’d already played Super Stardust on a friend’s PS3 and instantly fell in love with the arcade space-shooter gameplay mix.

I finally purchased it about 2 years ago when it went on a flash sale and have been enjoying it ever since then. I often boot this game only to play a few minutes before doing something else, and I highly recommend it if you like arcade games.
