Over the Labor Day weekend in Redondo Beach, Ca., Nintendo held their Wii Games: Summer 2010 national championship, and the tournament had Wii players from all over the country competing for a slew of prizes, including the chance to win a Royal Caribbean family cruise, Panasonic entertainment systems, and customized trophies made in the shape of the Wii Remote controller. On Friday, Wii Games Summer 2010 Ambassador Shawn Johnson led the finalists in a Hula Hoop warm-up which is featured on the Wii Fit Plus. Over 200 finalists competed in such games as Wii Sports Resort, Wii Fit Plus, New Super Mario Bros., and Mario Kart.
