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’. Surely they can’t leave it there? How aboutZBox 720? With war-and-cycling title ‘Pedal of Honour’? Or the ultra-violent search for luncheonmeat ‘Spamhunt’ forthepricey PayStation 3? All great contenders for console comedy.
