This article is talking about how the nintendo wii is able to help childred with physical therapy. Certain games can help with certai issues, just like the fishing game that was mentioned in the article. My question is that did nintendo wii do this on purpose knowing that this would be beneficial, or was it discovered. Now that wiki has been informed about this, will they specialize in games that will aid in physical therapy? Now will other gaming devices try to invent games to help with this issue?
