YouTube Coming To the PS3 and Wii 87

Clara writes "The YouTube blog has announced that YouTube is on its way to the PlayStation 3 and Wii. From the article: 'Have you ever wanted to just sit on your couch and watch YouTube on your TV? Well, now that's possible via YouTube for Television, initially available through the Sony PS3 and Nintendo Wii game consoles at Currently in beta, the TV Website offers a dynamic, lean-back, 10-foot television viewing experience.' No YouTube for Xbox, however (Google must simply not have gotten around to Microsoft yet)."

    Did I miss something? I didn't buy the internet channel; I got it for free.

    Of course, when I got it, it was a free beta test of the internet channel, buuuut it does everything the regular internet channel does, and if I go to the Wii Shop, it doesn't have an option to purchase the internet channel, and shows me as already having downloaded the internet channel.

    So, if they made it cost money now, it was free for pretty much the first year that the Wii was being sold (if not longer, as I got the internet channel just before Wii Fit came out).

    Saying it isn't free is a little misleading. I wouldn't know if it costs money NOW, but I can confirm it was free when I got it.
