Do you have a Wii U preorder in? Are you excited about this weekend's launch? Screw it! Cancel it all! You don't need it anymore as the Wii gets YouTube functionality.

Today (yes, just today), YouTube announces that the Wii has a free app up on the Wii Shop that lets you watch YouTube on your current Nintendo game system. Again, no need to buy that expensive new thing with this free application. 

"Better late than never"? No, more like just in time. To think that I almost bought a Wii U when I could have been watching YouTube on my existing Wii. Phew!
