PlayStation have announced via Twitter that they will soon cease to support the YouTube and Maps applications for the PlayStation Vita.

The YouTube application will be removed from the PlayStation Store today (28th January 2015) and will no longer be supported as of the 20th April 2015.
All of the features from the Maps application and a handful of the features from the near application will be disabled in a planned software update for the PlayStation Vita this March.
Worry not though, as YouTube can still be accessed via the PlayStation Vita’s browser (http://m.youtube.com) , where you can still access your playlists and channels once you sign into your Google account.
Personally, this news doesn’t make much of a difference to me, as I haven’t used either of these apps a great deal on my PlayStation Vita. However, let us know your views in the comments below!
