Who Says Playing Video Games is Lazy?

I am a big fan of the Wii. Wii Tennis has given me sore arms, Wii Boxing has made me sweat, and Wii Bowling has improved my offline bowling (as least that's what I tell myself).

The genius' at Nintendo never stop (except briefly from 1996 - 2006).

Wii Fit, Other Innovations Unveiled

By Nick Wingfield (Wall street journal)

The videogames business, after hitting a new sales high last year, this week plans to showcase new technologies to help spur further growth -- including a new product from Nintendo Co. to get users to exercise using their Wii game consoles.

Nintendo announced today that it will ship a new exercise product on May 19 in the U.S. called Wii Fit that comes with a weight-and-motion sensing device called the Wii Balance Board.

Do you think if I invest in a Nintendo Wii it will pay better dividends than Fitness First? I've given FF like $3,000 in gym memberships and they've given me nothing back. I mean I don't work out so I don't even have a good body as ROI?

Or you could get out and do some real exercise that doesn't involve you falling off your balance board and right through that brand new widescreen TV!
