President Barack Obama has shown a lot of support for Nintendo’s systems in recent weeks. There have been reports that he has played a bit of Wii Sports and helped his daughters locate their DSs. Now most recently, President Obama apparently set up a Wii station in the East Wing of the White House for the Superbowl.

“Representative Charlie Dent, Republican of Pennsylvania, said he was “pleasantly surprised” to be invited to the White House to watch the Super Bowl. He brought his three children — ages 14, 12 and 8 — who joined other kids at a Wii station that was set up in the East Wing.” – NYTimes
