    That means that they trademarked a pedometer.. and that's it.. Nintendo has tons of stuff registered that they never used.. [​IMG]


    Although I'm curious to see how they would use it..

    The pedometer fits in exactly with Nintendo's strategy of:

    Expanding the market to the casual gamer and utterly reassuring they are still focusing on the core market.

    Seriously... This is just another useless accessory for the WiiFit line of unnecessary workout implements... seriously, the towel, sports bottle, yoga mat... do I need to continue?

    Judging by their love of Friend Codes, Nintendo should have trademarked a pedo-meter instead. [​IMG]

    It's Nintendo's answer to parents' complaints about Pictochat!

    You know when I fisrt heard of a pedometer, it didn't sound good, but now that I know what it is, this new hardware might not be such a bad idea.
