The Nintendo Wii U has been able to access Amazon Instant Video content for quite some time already, and we are thankful for those folks over at Amazon who have a heart for the older Wii console, as Amazon Instant Video has recently been made available for the original Wii as well. Nintendo tweeted this particular bit of news, touting that the streaming service can be downloaded via the Wii Shop Channel – but only if you live in the US, that is. Too bad for folks living in the other regions, as until we receive official word from the House of Mario, we will just have to make the assumption that you won’t be able to get Amazon Instant Video anytime soon. Basically, the process is painless as all it requires is for you to download the app via the system, followed by registering it via a link. Boy, you didn’t even need to break a sweat for this, no?
