    I'm looking on the E3 Nintendo one and the boy playing the soccer looks interesting...I'm wondering how they would detect those kinds of movements..

    it kinda just looks like a pressure sensor, i.e. when you move your head and upper body towards the ball you exert different amounts of pressure through your feet which is picked up through the board, not all together complex but the calabrations would have taken forever lol

    possibly? but from what i can see the wiimote is still used to select characters,ect. so maybe it was just put there for convienience?

    I thought it might be that, but why would they use two Wiimotes? Reggie put one in each pocket.

    Because you have bills and a life to live.

    Nintendo is cool to me because they aren't next gen, they are new gen. I look at Ninty as a car with not alot of horse power. Yeah, Sony and Microsoft have more horses but when its time to race, they just spin tires. That Wii Fit is pretty cool. With everyone so "image" conscious nowadays, this is perfect! That's research at its finest Ninty.

    I didn't think this game would be cool o:

    If it's really as neat looking as it looks...
    And all the obese kids play it... Regularly....
    THEN AMERICA WILL BE.... FIT?!!?!??

    Probably not D:


    Maybe if you throw in online play with headsets.
    They're the only games that sell.


    I'm sure enough getting it.
    Though I think my masculinity will be in danger if we only get to play with that female character. I CAN'T LOOKS GIRLY. WHYYYYYYYY.

    yeah i wondered about that too, seemed odd that the guys was doing pressups to a girl character, though maybe that was his motivation :p

    Its just a souped up electric scale with Wiisports with all the fun sucked out of it! Push-ups are awesome, but It would feel ridiculous with this crap.

    I enjoyed watching Reggie and Miyamoto using it to do the goal defending game with the miis

    You realize this isn't targeted at kids right? So you aren't suppose to think this is super fun looking!

    Nintendo knows you little pudgers intend on staying that way until you get that highschool teasing.

    Ya, that was cool.

    You know that its a rip-off and it won't work right? Push-ups, weights, body building, thats the way to go! Not Yoga.

    I know you probably are too young to know the difference between males and females, but a lot of females enjoy working out without trying to put on muscle mass.
