Oldsters Help Propel Wii to Number 1

Although stories about senior citizens playing the Nintendo Wii are hardly new, these latest ones from a short piece in The Sun are painfully charming. Watching old folks playing Wii remains one of the most amazing bits of free marketing Nintendo ever devised.

It's working, too: 1UP passes on an FT story that claims that Nintendo, for the first time in 17 years, has taken the worldwide lead in sales of a videogame console.

(This is the place I'd normally complain about the lack of titles for the Wii, but since I've been playing Metroid Prime 3: Corruption and finding it first rate, besides a few annoying boss battles, I will shut up about the lack of titles until sometime after Super Mario Galaxy is released.)
