Old People Love the Wii! by jimmycanuck

Ok, so maybe love is a bit of an exaggeration, but they certainly seem to like it. Nintendo rented out booth space at the recent AARP expo in Anaheim, California, and even though few grandma’s went hands on, a lot of them watched with interest.

Siliconera has a great write up of the retirement community’s reaction to Nintendo’s little white box, complete with pictures.

This is probably the shortest post I’ll write today, but I just wanted to remind everyone that Nintendo is trying to break the mold once again – this time by actively reaching out to non-gamers in an effort to garner mainstream success.
