Nintendo courts old people; grandpa having Pearl Harbor flashbacks

Nintendo wasn’t kidding when they said it was their intention to reach every member of your family. We all assumed they would stop when they had you, your mom, your dog and your hot sister playing a four-way Wii Tennis match, but it looks like their icy grip extends down the street to the retirement home too.The above video is from the AARP‘s “Life After 50” convention where Nintendo did their best to prove to the older generation that their new Wii console is the Kick The Can of the 21st century. Surprisingly (or not, depending on how hip your grandparents are), the video game system went over quite well with the Centrum Silver crowd.This proves once again, that the elderly are better than Matt Cassamassina at everything.[Via Siliconera]

I'm Nex. I used to work here but my love of cash led me to take a gig with Wired. I still keep an eye on the 'toid, but to see what I'm really up to, you should either hit up my Vox or go have a look at the Wired media empire.
