The American Heart Association is endorsing a video game system to battle obesity.

They say Nintendo's Wii offers several games that actually get people some exercise, or at least gets them to move around while playing.

The Heart Association says with only 30 percent of Americans working out regularly, it's better to make a little difference, than no difference at all.

Nintendo will donate $1.5 million to the Heart Association as part of their new partnership.
