Those words now greet you at the U.S. Wii Web site alongside an image of the Wiimote. What follows are a series of six videos that show various people of all walks of life actually using the Wiimote to play WiiSports. An older gent bowls, a young woman plays tennis for the first time, and a young guy gets comfortable in the batter’s box after a few swings of a virtual bat. And so begins Nintendo’s campaign to bring Wii to the masses; what better way than to show people using it for the very first time (allegedly)? Watch the videos, I think they give a pretty accurate indication of how this system will be receieved, at least at first. Whether the console has staying power will be something Infendo watches closely in the coming year.
P.S. — I also learned today that Nintendo’s marketing living room sets are vastly superior to my own.
