A self-proclaimed game obsessed otaku in Japan has married his digital mate from Nintendo’s Love Plus, reports Reuters.  The man, who only used his online handle SAL9000 in his interview, admits to closing the knot with the virtual girlfriend he found in the Nintendo DS dating simulation game.  The man and his console-confined mate then took a honeymoon to Guam before returning for post-marital bliss and Tokyo trysts.  Reuters says SAL9000 likes to take pictures posed in front of famous Tokyo landmarks with his Nintendo DS, and he uses the voice recognition feature in Love Plus to hold conversations with his newlywed.  The man has said that if more people expressed themselves as he has, the world would be more interesting.   He also says he’ll continue playing the game even if a sequel comes out to avoid cheating on his wife.
