If you have kids the right age, you've probably heard about this game. The tech in this game / toy stores character data in the figurine and allows your kid to take his characters to a friend's house and play his characters there, with his friend in multi-player mode and it doesn't matter if he has an XBox360, Playstation3 or Wii.

Here is the review on Ars Technica which goes into detail. I only wrote about it briefly for a magazine.

It's heck-of-a-neat idea, the toy components are well made and the game is fun if you enjoy RPGs.

We have about 20 of the characters! The nice thing about collecting the new characters is the cost. New Wii games are typically $30-40, while each figurine (containing a new amount of game play) is about $7.50. So, you get 4-5 new guys for the price of one new Wii game! The kids love it.
