In an effort to energize a base of misguided youth, Sony has announced the PlayStation channel on YouTube. Starting today, Sony enthusiasts will be able to go to Sony’s YouTube page and browse videos that include interviews, trailers, and gameplay footage. No word if anyone at Sony is going to video blog about their love of Britney Spears in the near future.
The channel won’t just have the same content that can be readily accessed via the PlayStation network. In the future the channel will have a user-generated section, which will consist of unique game videos created through the PS3’s API. In addition to this, there will also be game-specific channels. Which, of course, will start with LittleBigPlanet this November.
Aside from the marketing machine stuff, are you guys into this? Was there a need for it? I’ve been looking for a place to dump all of my LocoRoco videos featuring me drooling over the PSP screen for a long time now. Thank you, Sony.
