Missing: Vitality Sensor

Infendo

Nintendo’s E3 ’09 press conference brought the announcement of the Vitality Sensor and shortly thereafter specualtion about what it might be used for. This years press conference however did not even contain a mention of the device. Why was the vitality sensor completely absent from Nintendo’s press conference?

A Nintendo spokesperson told Kotaku yesterday that “the peripheral wasn’t right for the show.” It looks like Nintendo remembered this year who E3 was for. The Zelda: Skyward Sword, Donkey Kong, Mario, Kid Icarus, Star Fox 64, Paper Mario, Mario Kart, Ocarina of Time-loving fans. However, I’m still slightly disappointed that we have no idea what the Vitality Sensor will be used for.

Are you disappointed or happy that the Vitality Sensor was a no-show at this year’s press conference? Let us know in the comments!
