    What the heck?
    Wow they really are late.
    But if YouTube is coming to the 3DS that another reason to get one.
    I'll most definitely be getting one for Christmas.
    The Xbox 360 has had YouTube for months now and it has an Internet Explorer app now too.

    It looks pretty much like the same as the PS3 app which happens to work alright.

    If they are getting YT on the 3DS it better be in 3D.
    They should also make Netflix 3D as well.
    Just imagine the 3DS at its full potential... everything 3D!

    Well, yeah.
    I guess that would be a bad thing but thats why they have the 3D Depth Slider, right?
    I'm just a 3DS n00b.

    I'm pretty sure you were able to use YT on the Wii with the internet channel. Although I guess a dedicated app would be convenient for it.

    WiiMC doesn't give you access to your YouTube account. The quality of this app is fraking awesome! I'm so happy that the rumor was true. Sadly WWE stop putting their weeklies on YouTube in favor of Hulu Plus :(

    Wait, this is US only, Pretty useless for everyone else than. I'm pretty sure the Youtube app for PS3 hasn't been released outside of the US.

    WiiMC sucks (for Youtube particularly). That shit crashes all the time for me.

    Can't remember it ever crashing on me, to be honest, and I was pretty satisfied with how Youtube worked. You sure you don't have an old revision or that your config isn't borked?

    I'm just wondering, is there a source for the 3DS YouTube that I may have missed?

    So it's still not 100%, as I thought, but as I've been reading on other forums, it's a very trustworthy source.
    Thanks for the link though soulx

    US only. Bah, that sucks. I can't help but wonder what's stopping them from releasing in Europe, it's not like YouTube isn't accessible here or anything like that.

    Hopefully that will be rectified soon.
