Losing pounds

As confirmation of the fact that computer games have become a major part of our lives, it seems that Halo 3 sales have exceeded £84m in 24 hours, setting a record for the first-day sales of an entertainment product, including films. That might help the fortunes of the XBox. As a latecomer to games, I, in common with older folks in retirement homes, prefer the easier Nintendo Wii. In a nice counterpoint to the 'couch potato' discourse, it seems that playing active console games can enable you to lose up to 27lb a year. The way I play the games, it is more likely to be 27lb a decade, but who's counting?
