SlayerG commented on Ubisoft's Updated Line-Up Still Includes Watch...:

@aaronsullivan I agree with everything you said. The problem though is that Microsoft has a licensing agreement that forbids publishers from releasing a game on their console if it has previously been released on other consoles. This means that if it had come out on Wii U as planned Ubisoft could have released it on PS3 in September, but not the 360. They wanted the extra sales opportunities on the 360, so we all had to wait. If anything, blame Microsoft for their stupid policy.

SlayerG commented on Feature: Breaking Down What Nintendo's QOL Pla...:

I wouldn't be surprised if Nintendo is looking at ways to move something like Wii Fit out in the real world even more than the Wii Fit sensor does. When I read this article I thought of Nintendo partnering with companies like Nordic Track to build a workout machine that allows interactive gaming to happen while you are working out. They could make games that help motivate and entertain you while you workout on a fitness machine. You could have your phone hooked up to the machine via BlueTooth, and post workout this machine would then send all the stats for your workout session to a Nintendo produced app for smart phones.

If the machines took off they could partner with large corporate Gym's to get these machines into their workout gym's. You could then sync your phone with these machines so they know your history, your info, preferences etc. This way no matter where you workout you will keep all your info with you, whether you are working out at home, or whatever gym you are at (so long as they have these workout machines).

Additionally, the phone app could also keep track of your distance walked, elevation change, speed and time of the walk/run, etc so that you could get that added to your stats. Just a thought.
