It was not quite tennis elbow, he decided.

"The variant in this patient can be labelled more specifically as 'Wiiitis,'" Bonis, a family practice physician, wrote in a letter to the New England Journal of Medicine.

Wii is pretty entertaning with other people playing with you. [Especially bowling.. Trying to get are 300 games. Still hasn't exist yet in are family.]! However, it is still fun playing by yourself as well.

I suspect Wiitis will be a disease with a rather short lifeterm. My own Wii has been gathering dust for a few months now after burning out on Wii Sports and finding out there's nothing interesting to buy for it except shovelware for kids. It's great fun when you have visitors but the thing is a huge bore for everything else. Everything about the Wii now screams FAD to me.
