Nico Nico video service hits Vita in US

Will stream Sony's E3 press conference live

US Vita owners are now able to download an app for access to Nico Nico, a social video networking service that's popular in Japan.


The service allows you to "view and overlay time stamped comments on live or uploaded videos" and already has some 27 million subscribers worldwide - mostly in Japan we assume.

Sony's E3 2012 press conference will be streamed live via the new app, Sony confirms, and later updates of the app will let you broadcast your own streams directly from your PS Vita.

Here's a preview video of it in action:
