A very interesting and exciting announcement comes this week, as YouTube will make itself available on Nintendo Wii and Sony Playstation 3 gaming consoles. This means, you can access YouTube videos (including the feature-length films) from the comfort of your living room television. NewTeeVee has more on the news:
The YouTube site has been optimized for the TV, stripped down to its bare essentials; that’s good. I especially like how video thumbnails “pop up” when you move your Wiimote cursor over them. It seems as though the “high quality” viewing option that you often get on the web version isn’t available (I couldn’t access it for videos I know have it), and that’s not so good — especially since you’re supposed to be watching from your couch.
