PlayStation University’s YouTube Initiative

Today, I’m going to start rolling out one of our newest features here on PlayStation University. I’ve come to understand that a lot of our members and a lot of our start-up readership has come from the YouTube community of PlayStation supporters. You guys have been a big part of our quick success and have asked very little in return (outside of our daily content of course).

So, I feel that this is as good a time as any to start giving back to the YouTube community of followers that we’ve established, by promoting you guys through our website. Some of you may notice that we have a featured video section planted on the right side of the homepage. Well, instead of rotating out game trailers in that square panel, I’ve decided that I’d like to rotate in and out new daily YouTube video from our readers.

If you support the PlayStation brand and our website, we’re willing to feature your video on our homepage for 24 hours at a time (maybe longer). All you have to do is email us a link to the video that you’d like us to feature and tell us why we should choose you. Every day, we will choose a new recipient to feature on the front page and this is a great way to promote your channel out to other viewers.

Don’t worry — We’re not going to charge you any money for this advertising. All that we request is that if you choose to take part in this initiative, say thanks with a shout out and that’s it. We’d be glad to help grow your viewership as you have helped grow ours.

All people interested in taking part in this initiative can feel free to email us at “youtube[@]” with your details.

I look forward to receiving your submissions and to working with all of you in helping grow our community and grow your viewership!


The Dean.

    I completely forgot to update the FIFA thing with the winners. Skeezy (something numbers) and Beckham won the FIFA stuff.

    I’m still waiting on a couple of more swag stuff before I announce the winners for the Awards Giveaway… Want to be able to include more people (should have this done for Wednesday of this upcoming week, so look out for it).
