According to reports, the National Health Service in the UK has endorsed Wii Fit Plus. As a result, Nintendo's product will be able to use the official Change4Life logo from the NHS on its TV and retail advertising.

<blockquote>The Daily Telegraph understands that the Nintendo Wii Fit Plus, which goes on sale this Friday, has won permission to use the NHS’s Change4Life logo in its advertising on television and in shops. From next year, it is possible that the logo will be used on the product itself, an unprecedented partnership between a video game and the Government.

Guy Cocker, of Gamespot, an industry website, said: “It’s a great victory for the computer games industry.

“And to give credit to Nintendo, I think most people who buy Wii Fit do so because they actually want to improve their health.” </blockquote>
