Sony plans to end support for several apps on the Vita in 2015.
Both Near and Maps will likely be unmissed by the majority when they go in March, but it’s the Youtube app closure that comes as the biggest surprise.
Owners of Vita will no longer be able to download the Youtube App commencing January 28, before closing for good on April 20. Streaming via the consoles browser will still be possible.
Sony has so far provided no reason as to why the apps are to be discontinued.
