Moneyless Monopoly

I was just reading where Hasbro is coming out with a debit card version of its famous Monopoly game. Instead of playing with the fake paper money we all associate with the game, players use debit cards and an electronic debit card reader. The role of banker is pretty much eliminated as the reader keeps track of players' cash balance.

But for those who prefer the old fashion version, don't worry, it will still be available.

Are we going a little too far with using technology for fun? After all, it's a board game that's been popular for many years without such technological devices. I suppose if Grandma and Grandpa want to play a fun game of Monopoly with the grandkids, the kids will now have to teach Grandma & Grandpa how to play.
