    The Wii Fit Peripherals That Didn't Make The Cut



    In the latest "Iwata Asks" on Nintendo's website, the company boss is still talking Wii Fit, specifically how the dev team came up with the concept of the balance (balance, not fitness) controller. At first, it was only going to register your left-and-right movement. Not good enough. So the team expanded it, crafting one able to detect movement in eight directions. Better. Now all that needed work was the design, because the initial prototype looked rubbish. So, living in constant fear of having their tea table upturned by a furious Miyamoto, the team obliged, ending up with the squat, square-ish shape the board is today. Captivating reading for Nintendo fanboys and industrial designers alike.

    So, do you think that some of these should have made the cut?

    I think that one (top right) is the most decent.
    With much love, 261311.

    I can't wait to go best buy and laugh secretly at people trying out Wii Fit. Still unsure if I'll get it. I was hoping it would do more to actually get you in shape, it seems like a glorified controller now.

    Isn't that what it always was? Treadmills across America are still safe as fat asses every where laugh at them. Since it you that get your self in shape. Wii fit is to keep track of those things. Yet the controller and game are just that fun ways to do the above.

    GTH does not make rock bands or people good at playing the real thing. It's about having fun.

    Guitar Hero and Rock Band are about having fun. I believe this game is about being a douche.
