Quite a few terms have been thrown around in order to refer to Wii Music. Nintendo's marketing materials call the title "a musical playground where there are no mistakes." Game auteur Shigeru Miyamoto agrees that Wii Music is more like a "toy," suggesting that its friendly, non-competitive nature, and its lack of scores make it "more interesting than a video game." On another occasion, Miyamoto suggested it was "not quite a game and not quite an instrument." The words change, but the sentiment remains the same throughout; Wii Music, the latest in Nintendo's uniquely adorable, motion-controlled, family-friendly, instantly accessible lineup, is not a "game" in the traditional sense that gamers have come to know.
