    The main use for something like that would be in exercise games where you would check your pulse rate. This isn't something that's going to be used for any significant regular games.

    WiiLie.

    As in We Lie.

    As in...surely that is a late April's Fool joke?



    I'd like to see some decent applications taking advantage of this, something like a modern Eternal Darkness would be awesome. But I dont think average people would be scared enough for the game to raise their pulse THAT significantly.

    Fitness is definitely the main use so it'll should sell pretty well to the Wii Fit crowd.

    The lie detector thing could be interesting too.

    My first thought for it being used in more regular type games was for horror titles. If it is acurate enough then something like Ju-On The Grudge could use it to keep the scare factor up.

    Pretty much going to be a day one purchase for me just for the health applications though.

    ^What health applications? There is absolutely no practical need to track your heart rate during fitness activities. If anything, it will distract you from focusing on your work.

    Not to fit a mold,

    Not to join a trend,

    Not to follow a crowd

    I'm thinking it would be something you would check only at certan points during a workout, not constantly throughout. But even Nintendo didn't show any programs for it, so I'm basically just theorizing at this point.

    Not that it's a good thing, in fact, it's the exact opposite of a good thing.
