+ - Should the Govt pay for injured man's Wii?->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Politicians in the Australian state of Victoria are currently locked in a debate about whether an injured man should be able to claim the cost of a Nintendo Wii under worker's compensation for rehabilitation purposes. The man's doctor apparently recommended he use the Wii Fit exercise device, but both insurance companies and the Government itself have blocked the payment and have now ridiculed the idea as paying for video games. But with the Wii Fit increasingly being used for rehabilitation purposes internationally, does the man have a fair case?"
