Apparently Wii, Other New Games DO Provide A Workout

I have criticized the Wii toys and others for attempting to substitute sitting on front of a TV screen and mimicking some athletic moves for getting outdoors and actually playing. Apparently you have to "work" to play these games well.

I am told a nephew of mine worked up a decent sweat on Christmas day "playing" tennis on a Wii system. Maybe it WILL make kids get some exercise, after all!

Still, there is no substitute for playing out-of-doors.
