Senior Citizens Enjoy Wii Game System

Video games aren't just for teenagers anymore.

Seniors at the Onslow County Senior Center in Jacksonville are playing Nintendo's wii game system.

Center director Sheri Slater says they purchased the system about a week ago with grant money. Believe it or not, the seniors are gaining physical exercise by playing a variety of interactive sports on the system.

Seniors move around by playing golf, bowling, tennis and boxing.

Slater says due to the popularity of the game, it took the center almost 8 months to find one.
