The latest high-profile cameo to grace scenes in ‘The Simpsons’ is none other than games giant Nintendo.

Shown in the US earlier this week, the episode featured some familiar- looking hardware – a motion-controlled console (the ‘Zii’), the brain child ofacompany called ‘Funtendo’.

All great contenders for console comedy.
