A survey was conducted in Europe to determine some of the more popular activities people enjoy while in bed. As one would expect, sleeping topped the list. However, more surprisingly, computer gaming slipped onto the list at ninth place – beating out sex. Playing DS in bed is fairly comfortable in bed, but it would probably be a bit more difficult to play with the Wii.

Action-Packed Wii Fighting Game Includes More Moves, More Levels, More Characters-More Brawling!

REDMOND, Wash., March 10, 2008 – When Mario™ appears in a new game, people perk up. But when loads of characters from across the Nintendo universe battle alongside such video game icons as Sonic The Hedgehog and Solid Snake, people take charge! The March 9 launch of Super Smash Bros.® Brawl quickens the pulse of even the most jaded veteran gamer. Featuring a host of playable characters, special items, stages and music, Super Smash Bros. Brawl is an encyclopedia of Nintendo’s video game history, making it the biggest and deepest brawl of them all.

This innovative fighting game, the first Super Smash Bros. game for Wii, ups the ante with several exciting new modes and wireless features. By logging onto Nintendo® Wi-Fi Connection, players can now enjoy online battles with friends near and far. An extensive new single-player mode is perfect for solo brawlers who want to hone their skills. A sprawling adventure mode called “The Subspace Emissary” lets players jump and brawl their way through enemy-packed side-scrolling levels, meeting up with other characters, watching incredible cinematics and taking on massive bosses – solo or in a cooperative two-player mode. And, of course, there’s the series hallmark: elaborate, action-packed battles that pit up to four players against one another in a brawl to see who’s the last one standing.

Got enough challenge in your daily routine? Chances are that basic everyday tasks – getting to work or school on time, walking the dog, taking out the trash – aren’t enough to keep you firing on all cylinders. Luckily, Virtual Console™ is close at hand to help you test your mettle in fresh and unusual ways. Whether you’re rescuing a kidnapped pal or mastering a set of mind-bending grid puzzles, this week’s new arrivals, imported from Japan, offer a refreshing break from the late-winter blahs.

Nintendo adds new games to the Wii™ Shop Channel at 9 a.m. Pacific time every Monday. Wii owners with a high-speed Internet connection can redeem Wii Points™ to download the games. Wii Points can be purchased in the Wii Shop Channel or at retail outlets. This week’s new games are:

SEGA® of America, Inc. today announced two titles from the SEGA Genesis™ library, Puyo Puyo 2 and POWERBALL will soon be available for download on the Wii™ Shop Channel this March. Prices start at 800 Wii™ Points for SEGA Genesis titles. Wii Points can be purchased online or at select retailers at an MSRP of $20 for 2,000 points.

Puyo Puyo 2 – The object of this head-to-head puzzle game is to clear your grid of falling patterns, called puyos, by forming chains of four or more same-colored puyos in a straight line or one of several geometric patterns. What makes this a challenging two-player contest is the fact that when you clear a chain of puyos from your grid, it drops a random piece of filler onto your opponent’s grid. The more puyos you clear, the more you fill your opponent’s grid, and if you can clutter up his grid enough to fill it to the top, you’ve won the game. An intriguing backstory makes this an amusing diversion for one or two players.

A rough estimate of the first day sales of Metroid Prime 3: Corruption are in from Japan. As many had anticipated, sales were minuscule compared to Wii Fit. Metroid only sold about 20,000 units on its first day. How long Corruption can go in Japan is questionable, as the previous two installments in the series did not sell well in the Land of the Rising Sun.
