I think video games are because if a sport is a type of entertainment that is physical. Wii motion plus or not, all games have atleast a little bit of physicality.

No, I believe on the contrary that playing video games is not a sport. I do so under your assumption that a sport requires some form of physical exertion and at least a little bit of physicality. If we use this categorization to define a sport then we can say that clicking a remote, watching a tv, or even typing on a computer can be viewed as a sport. This is why I believe video games can fall under entertainment but do not fall under the category of sport. I guess it would clear it up if I provided a framework for the word sport so I shall use the definition that a sport "is all forms of usually competitive physical activity which, through casual or organised participation, aim to use, maintain or improve physical ability and skills while providing entertainment to participants, and in some cases, spectators." provided by sport accord.
