    DSi Pedometer Announced
    First game ONLY for DSi
    Nintendo’s DSi and DSi Shop aren’t the only new things coming for avid gamers; they’re also looking to bring some Wii-style “get off your fat cheeks and do some exercise” action courtesy of the new DSi Pedometer. Confirming the information gleaned from a trade document earlier this week, the Nintendo Pedometer will connect wirelessly with the DSi and be used initially with a new game title, “Your Life Rhythm”.


    “Your Life Rhythm” seems basically to record your progress walking, sort of like Brain Training but for your feet. It looks as though the wireless connection isn’t persistent, and as such data is transferred only when the Pedometer is held up to the DSi. More of a record of your achievement than a new input device.

    The Nintendo Pedometer will be bundled with “Your Life Rhythm” when it launches. Price and availability are yet to be announced.

    Normally, I wouldn't approve of a game like this, but Nintendo seems to be making loads of money off these types of games, so I'm sort of interested now.

    Where did you get that it's only for DSi?
    That article on kotaku doesn't mention anything about it

    yeh.. and if it was "only for DSi", nintendo would've pwned themselves pretty bad...
    I mean: "All games will work for ANY ds console" three days later: "Now introducing a DSi exclusive game!!"

    This seems to be fun, to log how much I walk a day... it's pretty much!

    DSi exclusive games are those in the DSiWare shop.

    They ought to get rid of friend codes and invent a "pedo meter" online so kids can turn off their system if the meter is high

    has everyone forgot about the other pedomter for the DS that came with My Weight Loss Coach. Guess they had to release the new one cos of the lack of GBA slot.
