YouTube betas new version for the Wii

Lifehacker reports that YouTube has a new version that is designed to work better on TVs.

I immediately went and pointed my Wii Browser to – WOW!


The start screen tells me to update my Wii – maybe they ran it on a different version, my Wii is already on the latest release.


The start page has 4 sections: Most Views, Best Rating, Recommended and New.


“My Videos” will bring you to your subscriptions, all with easy to use buttins and no scrolling. Very nice.


Playing a video is also a lot easier. Again, no scrolling.


The full screen player also pops up controls on demand.

This a a huge step forward. Add YouTube’s trand to HD video, and the Wii is a lot more useful in the living room. Liking it. A lot.

Now bring on the new version of the Opera browser, please!

Transform your XBox or PS2 into an Arcade Cabinet


Now this is really really cool:

“The QuasicadePRO is the ultimate arcade system for the ultimate game room. A 27″ High Definition (480i, 480p, 720p, and 1080i) monitor fills your field of vision with amazing picture quality only available when combining next gen consoles with next gen monitors. Two way satellite speakers pump high fidelity audio at ear level, and a high powered subwoofer drops heart thumping bass for a totally immersive gaming experience. At the heart of the QuasicadePRO is the patented QuasiCON 2P Control System. Play your favorite PS2, Xbox, GameCube or PC games in true shoulder to shoulder arcade style.”

That would look awesome in our living room, woukdn’t it? What did you say, hon…? Oh….
