The PlayStation 4 will become the first video games console to include YouTube sharing when the dedicated app hits the Sony device “later this year.”
The company announced the move at the E3 2014 event, where it revealed that gamers will be able to quickly upload video captures to their channel by simply hitting the share button. The feature will also allow them to see videos shared by their friends, which will appear in their What’s New feed.
