American Heart Association hails the Wii

But only the active games

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Nintendo has won the backing of the American Heart Association for its active video games on the Wii.

The AHA acknowledges that this is second best compared with doing real sport, but compares very will with sitting on the couch. It reckons that 70 per cent of Americans don't exercise enough, and that"screen time" is a contributory factor.

The AHA got an earbashing from Good Morning America for its endorsement - turn here for the AHA's counterblast.

They say they are going to "get in the game". We would like them to lobby the FB gaming apps people to introduce exercise elements - random punches for Mafia Wars, and milking machine (with cow, of course) tie-ins for Farmville.

Just saying.
