The Wii arrived today. So far we’ve played bowling and tennis. It really is as much fun as I’d hoped; we ended up laughing and bouncing around and breaking a mild sweat. Perhaps later in the week we’ll try Rayman Raving Rabbids and smack some bunnies with rubber plungers.

The whole Wii experience is very slick, from the packaging the console comes in to the user interface of the software itself. Nintendo are the Apple of video games.
