It's just like tennis or bowling, only with a pole and less clothes. Gizmodo finds out the Wii is serious about the whole pole dancing game: "At first we thought this Wii Pole Dancing game was a joke—how could something so sexy come to such a 'family-friendly' and casual console like the Wii? Turns out it's not a joke. The company's representative, Simon Kay, didn't comment on how far the development of the pole peripheral was, but did say that they're going to try and encourage both women and men to pole dance for 'fun and fitness.'" To the tech site's dismay Carmen Electra likely has nothing to do with the "Electra-pole" kit. [Gizmodo]
