    "Wii Elbow"

    Aerobic activity with motion-sensing controller causing aches, pains; Nintendo urges exercise to counteract.
    Possibly the funniest line in recent history.

    full story.

    So any of you wii'ers out there getting worn out by the new control mechanics?

    I'm pretty sure that only happens if you're a lazy couch potato who's never moved more than his thumbs before.
    Anyone who's done any physical activity within the past 2 months shouldn't have any problems... unless you play for 9 hours straight or something.
    (which is an unhealthy amount of time to do anything, except sleep.)

    LLLOOOLLL thats sooo sad. wii now have his own anti-fatties people system. im SURE that if you re active (and whit that i aint talking bout' doing exercise 24/7) u arent gonna to have any problem, like 2/6 of all the americans have overweight, im pretty sure too that the fat people will just buy the hyper-expensive playstation 3 (im not saying it is bad, just expensive) cuz they are so lazy to be more active.

    The problem is that it appears that after the first week of the console's release, many of those gamers are running out of breath.
    Haha. People have to understand that they're not just sitting on there ass in games anymore.

    The Wii is wireless. Except for the nunchuk, but if they DID make a Wii2 with legs, I'm sure they would make all the seperate parts wireless.

    If I do get exercise from playing, I will be happy.

    This hurt comes from people playing to overzealously. I mean, it is possible to just sit down and swing the remote a little bit, and you'll get the same effect/score from sitting down or jumping around while playing Wii Tennis.

    I have played Wii Boxing and it was in fact a bit of exercise, my arms were tired after a bit. I t shouldn't be a problem like you guys already said as long as you play normally.
