Gamasutra- "The tennis game in Nintendo's Wii Sports was perhaps a perfect showcase for what Nintendo was trying to accomplish with the original Wii. It defined the system -- and its intended audience -- by offering a control scheme that addressed the button anxiety that non-game players suffered by nearly eliminating them entirely.
Players being handed a Wii remote for the first time intuitively knew how to hit a tennis ball. It might have taken a second to acknowledge that actually swinging a video game controller would do something on screen, but it immediately clicked.
So when Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime said on Tuesday that the company's launch-bound virtual theme park Nintendo Land "does for Wii U what Wii Sports did for Wii," we decided to put his claim to the test."
