Wii rats out adulterous spouse

Wii grasses up cheating wife

US soldier discovers incriminating 'Mii'

A US soldier discovered his missus had been playing away at home after spotting a suspicious "Mii" on his Nintendo Wii, the Evening Standard reports.

The man, known only as Tony, returned from a year in Iraq to reports from chums that his wife had been cheating on him. He'd had the Wii for company while on service in Iraq, but had mailed it back to the States prior to his return.

His other half claimed she'd only kissed the suspect, a professional bowler, once, but the Wii said otherwise. Tony emailed a Nintendo messageboard admitting he'd was "confused about his wife's denials of any indiscretion".

However, he continued: "All that changed when I plug in my Nintendo Wii for some Wii Sports. I flip through the Wii menu and visit the Mii channel so I can peruse the many friends that I have created with the guys that I played with in Iraq. As I go through the characters I see there is a Mii that I have not created."

Tony concluded: "I went into the Wii message board and click on the calendar option. Through this menu I was able to identify the many nights my wife's Mii and this other Mii character played Wii bowling."

And for good measure, the offending Mii was apparently "strikingly similar" to the bowling philanderer.

The end result? "Tony has separated from his wife and filed for divorce," the Standard notes.

Basically, the guy found a mysterious mii and checked the console logs, discovering a cavalcade of lies indicating that his wife had been wii-ing around with another man!

Scandalous!

Perhaps we should learn from this incident and peruse our own console logs for adulterous playtime.

And/or clear the system memory regularly.

    You have a guest Mii so that your wife can cheat on you without you catching her?

    Just to clarify, for folks, Dude found out about his wife having some level of involvement with another dude (who happened to be a bowler). She claimed it consisted of only a single kiss. He finds a Mii that looks just like the guy on his Wii, and then goes into the records and see that the dude has been spending s WHOLE lot of time with the guy, enough to make him certain that his suspicions havebeen confirmed.

    I'm pretty sure he would have eventually found out without the Wii tip off.

    It's quite sad to hear that someone from the armed forces who is also a gamer ends up finding his chick being unfaithful.

    several headlines i came up with for this story before passing it off to someone less cruel:
    • Bowling helps woman find love (while husband serves tour in iraq)
    • Casual game reveals casual affair
    • Wife picks up a spare (lover) in Wii bowling

    It is actually pretty common. You don't want to believe, but it's true.

    When I was in the Navy I worked at the naval hospital in Bremerton Washington nearish Seattle and we called them West Pac widows. It was amazing how dead the clubs would be when the ships were in and how crazy they would be when they left. It's a large reason why I avoided serious realationships when I was in the service.

    I would say cheating is the norm, usually for both sides. You know a different woman at each port...

    Yeah. Considering how unfaithful girls are when you're there it really shoudnt be surprising that this lack of faithfulness grows when you arnt.

    Depressing but true.

    I wouldn't be surprised if there weren't hundreds of dudes (and a gal or two) who got divorced because they were too sucked into an MMO to pay attention to their spouse.
