Boss pays for employee’s WiiFit

If you can even get your hands on one, Red Mozzie may have come up with a way to get a WiiFit on the cheap: [My] office has a health and fitness policy, which allows employees to claim an allowance of $150 per year for fitness-related equipment or services: sports clothes, gym memberships, that sort of thing. Well, I submitted my form to apply for a reimbursement for Wii Fit. And it came through n...

New Game Get – Nintendo releases for the week ending May 24th

WiiFit is it! Really, it’s the only game being released in stores for any Nintendo’s systems this week. Nothing is coming out for DS at all. Are you picking up the next big thing?

Expert ‘aghast’ at idea of Wii Fit for kids

Video games just can’t win. First, it was violence. Then, sex. And today? It seems as though one expert believes Wii Fit will kill it some young kids something fierce. Tam Fry of the National Obesity Forum is calling for children to be banned from Wii Fit. I’m absolutely aghast that children are being told they are fat… BMI is far from perfect but with children it simply should n...

Nintendo, done in the Biblical sense

If you don’t read Sean Malstrom, you should. If that makes me sound like his official cheerleader, then so be it. On his homepage today, Malstrom juxtaposes the Book of Revelations and four key Nintendo executives. The results are humorous, telling, and 100% enjoyable to read. Come and see, the voice said to me. I looked up, honked my trumpet again, and lo! Come and see! said the voice again...

The Wii Fit Balance Board is a console

“I have an idea for an Infendo post you should do…” — Sean Malstrom And so began this simple post on an extraordinary idea. Perhaps a bit crazy too, but then again all disruptive technologies are labeled as such before they’re accepted en masse. The idea? That the Balance Board packaged with Wii Fit isn’t an accessory at all. It’s a console, just the like ...

Miyamoto to gamers: Go outside! (and online Wii Fit is coming soon)

Nintendo guru Shigeru Miyamoto realizes there are parallels to be drawn between Wii Fit and real, live actual exercise, so he wants to make sure you understand that there’s no substitute for going outside and “moving around.” “Spending too long, staying in and playing any video game is not good,” said Miyamoto. “I always tell my children to get out on a sunny day and I, mys...

So I bought Wii Fit today

Today I went ahead and took advantage of a $5 credit on my Amazon account — as well as the lack of sales tax on Internet transactions and Free Super Saver shipping — and pre-ordered Wii Fit. All the signs and portents say this thing is going to be huge, and I didn’t want to miss out while my neighbors, parents and sisters got their fitness on without me. Some game-related reporti...
