Tech Industry
[ Music ] ^M00:00:02 >> Hey there, I'm Kara Tsuboi, CNET News.com. Whoever thought video games are for teenage boys, sorely mistaken. I'm here at the senior center and we're going Wii Bowling. ^M00:00:12 [ Music ] ^M00:00:13 >> Ten frame [inaudible]. ^M00:00:16 [ Music ] ^M00:00:19 >> Yes. ^M00:00:21 [ Music ] ^M00:00:22 >> Whew, right. >> At senior centers all over the country, these are becoming increasingly popular scenes as the gray haired set discovers the fun of the Nintendo Wii. >> Suck it to him baby. Yeah, right on the money. >> Wii Bowling and the other four activities in the Wii Sports package have long been praised for so realistically simulating the real games. Reminding some players of times long ago. >> You get the feeling that it's really a bowling alley and didn't take a heavy ball to lift. >> It's just like they're actually playing the games for real with a live ball and live people. >> Seventy-five year old Danny Messina and 77-year old Edith Iwata, both enjoy computer and video games because they're fun and can keep you sharp. >> When the grandkids come over they love to play it and I love to join in with them. Keeps you young, that's right. Makes you think young. And that's what you have to do when you get my age. >> It's fun, you can do it indoors and you can do it anytime. >> Before today, I was actually a novice at Wii Bowling, but after a quick lesson from Francis, I was ready to throw some strikes. >> And when you bring it back, you release it. >> Okay. At just the right moment. >> It's like releasing the ball. ^M00:01:37 [ Cheering ] ^M00:01:42 >> The Wii console was donated to this particular senior center in Northern California and has been a smash hit ever since. >> Off gotta my foot. >> As for me, I didn't set out to be the ring of the group, but Edith, Dee and Francis were great sports and good teammates. Good game, 159 on my first game. Not bad for a day of work. I'm Kara Tsuboi, CNET News.com. >> Wii, Wii, Wii,Wii, Wii, Wii, Wii, all the way home. ^M00:02:10 [ Music ]
