    So it's very possible... but like everything on PC, that level of stuff costs a LOT of money!!

    The Mrs bought a Wii, along with four controller nunchaku-things, a Fit board, steering wheels and a whole bunch of other weird things, along with something like 40-odd games... The discs got sold off cheap and the rest has been gathering dust for several years. No-one ever wanted to play...

    I do keep meaning to check out the Rayman stuff, though!

    I can see them being used in a gym. If a local gym had one of those? I'll go. I find CoD boring but I can live with being in a rolling hamster cage if it get me playing a game at the same time Doesn't have to be CoD though, any FPS-style gaming would do (Skyrim have been used for this).

    Re: QOTW: Is PC gaming really superior to console?

    Thing is, you need a fair bit of space to play a lot of the Wii things... unless you like walking around on broken vases! You also need to be a fair distance from the sensor.

    If you have that kind of space, you might as well build a SimPit or use one of these VR walkaround frame thingies!
