YouTube arrives today on the last major gaming console it's been absent from: the Nintendo Wii, with its installed base of 97 million units around the world.

For starters, the YouTube app for Wii will be available only in the United States. But Google plans on bringing it to other countries soon.

YouTube apps are now available on 400 million devices around the world, Google says. It previously came to the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360, and has been announced as a partner for the Wii U, which makes its U.S. debut Sunday.
