Miis are another brilliant (and somewhat underrated) element of the Wii system. By including this build-your-own caricatures software, Nintendo shrewdly taps into America's obsession with seeing ourselves on TV (even if it is in a video game.) But perhaps the Japanese are even more self-obsessed? Okay that's impossible. Still, according to a recent report, Wiis outsold Playstation 3s in Japan by a margin of 6 to 1 in June. And if you give up, he says, “Damn It!" and "WHERE’S THE BOMB!!!" a lot. More celebrity Miis here. Make your own (without a Wii) here.
