YouTube Wii app arrives in US, just 48 hours from Wii U launch

UK to get app in next few months.


US gamers can now download a YouTube app for Wii, just 48 hours before the console is replaced by the Wii U.

Bad news, UK gamers. You'll have to cling on a little longer. The Google-developed app will then roll-out to other countries in the months ahead, The Next Web reports.

The app offers a pointer-based user interface with sections for popular videos and YouTube Trending clips, plus specific sections for the best gaming, music and sports content.

Nintendo's upcoming Wii U console launches in the UK on 30th November and also supports a YouTube app.

To be fair, the Xbox 360 only gained a YouTube app last December. It requires a paid Xbox Live Gold subscription to use.
