It's Wii-Day+8 and gamers around the country are simultaneously discovering one thing: they're wildly out of shape. Yup, it seems that many gamers have gotten a bit more than they bargained for regarding how vigorous playing the Nintendo Wii is. One girl described it as "harder than playing basketball" while another complained of sore muscles. You know how Nintendo responded to these complaints?

Essentially, "work out more, fatsos." A Nintendo PR rep said, "If people are finding themselves sore, they may need to exercise more." Wow, how's that for motivation. You know you're out of shape when a Nintendo PR rep tells you to hit the gym. The rep also said that the Wii is not Jenny Craig and should not be viewed as such. Ouch.

Funny, I don't remember anyone whining when Track & Field game for the original NES "power pad" came out. ;]
