Nintendo Wii wins video game critics’ award

Wii just picked up a game critics award. Reuters writes: “Video game critics on Wednesday honored Nintendo’s Wii console and Electronic Arts’ upcoming ‘Spore’ video game for bringing fresh ideas to the $28.5 billion industry that has been criticized for relying on films for inspiration and on game sequels for sales. Critics crowned the Wii ‘Best of Show’ after game enthusiasts at the recent Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) waited hours to get their hands on the Nintendo machine due later this year.”
