LET'S GO NEW YORK RANGERS!
Playstation - Playstation 2 - Playstation 3 - PlayStation 4
Keep the tradition going Sony!
Is it that hard to go to the browser and type in youtube? From there it will save in the history.....
They won't play directly in the browser because it doesn't support flash. It's possible to use YouTube/TV and play videos from your mobile device on the console browser. That's the only way I've found to watch them on the PS4. If there's a better way please explain what it is because I would really like to not depend on my phone to do this.
You don't have to use your smartphone, all you have to do is open the PS4's browser and go to www.youtube.com/tv It's pretty much the same interface as the PS3's YouTube App (which I'm pretty sure is just an HTML5 gateway for the PS3 and not a dedicated app) so it should be easy to navigate.
Yes, it isn't as seamless as having a dedicated PS4 app but it's the next best thing and it doesn't require a smartphone.
As for the question at hand, nobody here knows. It could be 2 days until a YouTube app is released or 5 years. No one here is going to comment on that if they happen to be a PS4 firmware developer. They will be contractually bound to stay quiet. The only thing you can do is wait.
