Wii Offers a Wee Workout

None of the games reached the level of vigorous exercise you get from running, biking or swimming. Still, these active games are better than sitting on the couch and only moving your thumbs.
Nintendo's Mario Is Back
The world's most famous plumber is back on the Wii. Nintendo has just released a new game starring Mario called "New Super Mario Brothers Wii." CNET's Dan Ackerman says it's a bit of a blast from the past.
"If you're a child of the '80s or even wish you were, 'Super Mario Brothers Wii' is a great way to kind of get a taste of that vintage gaming feel with some of gaming's and Nintendo's most iconic characters," Ackerman said.
The multi-player game allows up to four people to have their characters on-screen at a time. The latest incarnation of Mario is on sale now and costs about $50.
