Retirees "Wii Would Like To Play!"

Nintendo's Wii video game system has made its way into many homes since its release last Christmas and has recently been found in retirement communities across the country. Seniors enjoy the social benefits as well as the exercise offered by the console system.

"It's a very social thing and it's good exercise ... and you don't have to throw a 16-pound bowling ball to get results," said Flora Dierbach a senior from Chicago.

Boasting a console without all the bells and whistles of the X-Box 360 and PS3, Nintendo's Wii offers an interactive forum, cardiovascular exercise and is just plain fun. Nintendo's goal with the Wii was to make game play easier, more intuitive and more appealing to a mass-market, and with sales exceeding its major competitors, Microsoft and Sony, Nintendo has done just that.
