The Nintendo Wii has been one of the most popular party games since its launch in November of 2006. Wii parties have popped up in nursing homes to rehabilitation facilies, to college dorm rooms. Now the Wii is taking “Game Party” to a whole new level.
IGN entertainment has revealed that they will be releasing what is tentatively named “Party Game”. This game will include table hockey, hoop shoot, trivia, ski ball, darts and a game called “ping pong”. This game of “ping pong” enables the gamer to use the Wiimote to toss a ball into a pyramid of cups. Sound quite like beer pong to us.
Midway also released one screen shot, that further confirms the fact that this “ping pong” is your typical game of Beer Pong or “Beirut” as seen below:
We see three real benefits of this game.
1) No clean up besides a few beer cans!
2) The game can be played in a much more casual, non-binge drinking fashion
3) You can play beer pong without drinking basement floor bacteria.
The one question that remains unanswered is … how can you psyche out the other team?
