While these aren't the best quality we've ever seen for scanned pages, it's still exciting to see the Wii getting mainstream press coverage, particularly in a nontraditional market. Magazines targeted at women and teen girls are often down on video games. Even the Wii gets this treatment, alas, in the March issue of Cosmopolitan
, wherein it is referred to as an example of a poorly-chosen gift. Of course, we tend to think that anyone who can find
a Wii must be a gift-giving superhero
, but we are admittedly biased. No matter. We just find it refreshing that Teen Vogue
is taking a pro-Wii stance and indicating that it's the bee's knees for girls.
And we definitely wanted to point out the shirt the girl on the left is wearing. It reads "Oui Wii" and we here at the 'Fanboy feel a burning need to get our hands on one of those right now
. We're probably not going to read Teen Vogue
to get one, though. We'll do a lot of things for Wii gear, but that's a line we're so not crossing.
