Wii: The Living

By Lee Howard, 12/25/2007:

Waterford, Connecticut -- While kids dream of finding a Nintendo Wii under the Christmas tree today, Frank Kuzmenko of Lisbon has already had the gaming system working its magic as he bowls strikes and sinks putts with increasing confidence.

Unlike the kids, though, Kuzmenko, a recent stroke victim, needs a little assistance... the Wii.

The Wii's use as a therapeutic tool, which began as an experiment at a hospital in Canada, has picked up steam since the gaming system's introduction into the United States a little more than a year ago. Several other rehab centers in the area, including Fountainview Care Center in Waterford, are considering introducing the system, as is Lawrence & Memorial Hospital. Bridgeport Hospital has been using the Wii as part of its therapy regimen since October.

The story is too old to be commented.

simply when MGS4 and FF13 lands we will see what happens to wii

whether the demand dies or not---we will certainly see

PS3 is useless in the hospitals and for therapeutic purposes.

There's one thing that the PS3 can never do: bring hopes, joy and happiness to the people who REALLY need it the most:

Can a PS3 be directly useful for that poor girl?

Yeah, it's not as if anyone wants to play Brawl, Spore, Monster Hunter 3, Mario Kart Wii, TOS 2, etc. MGS4 and FF13 will be blockbusters for sure, but this continued ridiculous talk from fanboys of the Wii being a fad is just pathetic. Give it a rest.

atleast PS3 is more powerful than x360 and PS3 owners conribute to the CANCER INSTITUTE by FOLDING HOME project.

unlike that GARBAGE BOX X360 which is fit for repair shop only

There is ONE THING that GARBAGE BOX 360 has given to XBOTS

yeah next year you'll be in the same boat sony fanboys.. dead last... thats always reserve for that trash sony call the ps3... 08 you can come up with new ways to cry and hate when wii sells even more systems.. by then you'll be down 10 million to xbox360 and around close to 20 to wii.

TANOD4046d ago (Edited 4046d ago )

In fact x360 is dead in JAPAN and EU

will be dead in NA too

However watch out for CANADA NPDs . I expect ps3 to beat x360

in NA too the race will be close

However things will change next year

is there something wrong with you? I am being serious. You take a topic nowhere related to ps3 and 360 and turn it into something else. Why? Are you hard up for points or something?

Plus, why do you have a hatred for gaming? I mean gaming in general. To solely back one system in a time of great games for all is ludicrous.

Xbox is the BEST4046d ago

this is news about the Wii not 360 or PS3
