Did you hear for the umpteenth time Brain Age doesn't really help your brain? No, really.

While Nintendo does not claim the game can reverse the effects of aging, the game's instruction booklet states, "Training can help consolidate memory and creativity and may hopefully help develop a resistance against decline in later life."


Consumer site Which? asked a panel of scientists to examine the game to see if it met the minimum standards by which quality research is judged and checked to see if it had been reviewed by a experts and published in an academic journal.

The Which? scientists dismissed the game's self-improvement aspect: "There is no evidence that using this product will have any functional impact on your life whatsoever." But it sure is fun.

Still, what's next, pundits telling us that Wii Fit doesn't work?

Oh. Wait. Never mind, carry on, carry on!
