Google announced today it has started piping YouTube videos directly to Wii and PlayStation 3 game consoles that are connected to the Internet. Google simplified the interface for a TV experience so viewers can navigate the site using the arrow keys on their Wii remote or PS3 controller.
It’s part of Google’s plan to distribute its products far and wide beyond the traditional computer and into places like the living room, where the television reigns supreme. Last year, for example, the search giant struck deals to pipe YouTube videos directly to connected Sony Bravia TVs, Panasonic Viera TVs, the Apple TV device and TiVo’s digital video recorder.
