    Why is everyone so happy about this? Is it because your hobby has been validated by the president?

    Obviously. We were all scared that, like the Venezuelan president (Ruler-guy?), certain video games would get banned...

    I dont see how this changes anything, but it is still worthy of posting. Nintendo is not going to sell a billion more wii's now that obama love wii.

    Or will they?

    I just remembered that Obama had that whole "Put down the Wii Remote and vote" ad that ran during his campaign. Now there's one in the white-house!

    Yeah, this isn't an important news story, but I kinda find it cute that there will be a Wii in the white-house. For some reason I imagine Obama actually playing a few games every once in a while.

    He only mentioned playing the Wii because he got his young daughters one. If he had older, male kids, I'm sure he'd be playing a PS3 or 360.

    lol just kidding, Wii for life!

    That's pretty great. It's interesting though, how just about everyone seems to like Wii Sports bowling. Perhaps it's easier for newcomers to the Wii because it doesn't require rapid responses like Tennis and Baseball.
