Seniors Still Love The Wii

We've all heard that the Wii is a favorite pastime for senior citizens in fact, the console has even become a staple in retirement communities and taught us that 47 percent of all casual game players are 50 or older, and nearly 20 percent are 60 or older. Sure, the image of granny picking up the Wii is pretty darn cute, but it doesn't stop there. The Sun is reporting that residents as old as 103 have ditched knitting and bridge after getting hooked on the console. Says Barrie Edgar, who is 88, “It’s great fun. We’ve only had it a few days but we can’t put it down.” So, some things really don't change with age, do they?

Check out the rest of the OAPs say nurse, I need a Wii on The Sun's website.

that is GREAT but not too surprising...my mom and her sister got a major kick out of Wii golf and tennis...and they both thought that they would never like a video game.
