Abstract:The current study tried to investigate the acceptance of the Nintendo Wii among inhabitants of retirement homes. A modification of the theory acceptance model (TAM) was used, where next to the impact of perceived usefulness and perceived ease of use also the impact of self-efficacy and personality on the acceptance of the Nintendo Wii was measured. Because of unforeseen problems by collecting the required data, it was not possible to operate the study in its original form. So instead the study focused on these problems. The main findings in analyzing these problems pointed in the direction of the question of how to administer a questionnaire the best way in a retirement home. A structured Interview seemed to be best suited when handling a questionnaire as a measurement tool. Also it turned out to be very difficult for the participants to rate their answers/statements accordingly to ratings scales. They got confused and most of them began to give the answer just with the „yes“ or „no“ extreme.
