Google launches RSS reader for Nintendo Wii

Google quietly launched a cool new app for the Nintendo Wii. They’ve taken their popular Google Reader service and adapted it to the Nintendo Wii web browser and wii remote.

Google Reader can take advantage of the buttons on your Wiimote, letting you navigate easily from page to page. From our testing, it works pretty darn good. Check out by pointing your Wii browser to http://www.google.com/reader/wii

Below is a breakdown of how you will use you Wii remote to navigate Google Reader… or should I say Wiider…. sorry, I had to:

up/down: scroll up/down
right/left: next/previous item
1 button: show subscriptions
2 button: show links

When showing subscriptions:

up/down: previous/next subscription
right: select current subscription
left: close
-/+: collapse/expand folder
