Wii Warnings!

Recall the Wii recall and the related lawsuit. Well, thanks to my brother who evidently wished to ensure that I stay up late shooting bunnies for every day of my vacation, I can report the following:

  1. The interface for the Wii is unbelievably cool, genuinely accessible to everyone from, say, age 4 up.
  2. The games are fun and addictive (in addition to Rayman, they brought Wii Sports).
  3. I can see how the strap would be insufficient and how, in particular with games like the bowling game, damage could occur.
  4. The system is chock full o' warnings. In addition to the reminders to clear furniture, people, etc., from the region, it also periodically says "Why not take a break?" and describes how to pause the game.  It also tells you, daily, how much time you spent playing which games, which can help suggest that you might be overdoing it.
  5. Did I mention that it's really fun?  It is.
