We all remember the hilarity surrounding the Chinese answer to Nintendo's Wii, the Vii. Now it seems a French company is doing the same thing and releasing its own family-friendly, casual-gamey, motion-sensey device for living rooms.
The device, which retails at EUR39.99, features a vibrant portfolio of games including Baseball, Ping Pong, Bowling, Boxing, Football and Tennis.
While it's easy to laugh at what is blatantly an attempt to horn in on the Wii format at a budget price it is, in a sense, quite worrying. What bothers me is that the growth in casual/family oriented gaming could mean a downturn in the quality of both the hardware and software in production.
