Should the Gov't Pay For Injured Man's Wii? 222 222

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 for rehabilitation purposes under worker's compensation.

But with the Wii Fit increasingly being used for rehabilitation purposes internationally, does the man have a fair case?"
