PixelJunk Eden: now fortified with YouTube APIs

Posted by Christine Tsai, YouTube Syndication Product Marketing Manager

Back in May, you may remember that we announced a unique partnership with the PLAYSTATION®3 (PS3TM) team which would allow game developers to integrate direct upload to YouTube from within PS3 games. We're excited that the latest game to feature YouTube upload functionality is PixelJunkEden, a PlayStation® Network title from the popular PixelJunk series.

For all you PixelJunk fans, you'll now be able to capture video of your game recordings and upload directly to YouTube. Here are a couple examples of videos captured in-game and uploaded to YouTube:

We've already seen the significant positive impact for games like Spore and Mainichi Issho and how gamers share & show off their creations. We look forward to the day when having YouTube upload support in games will be a standard feature.

As Q-Games President Dylan Cuthbert said on the Playstation Blog, "The YouTube upload feature is going to revolutionize how people share tips". We wholeheartedly agree!
