Reggie: users will ‘get’ Vitality Sensor

Speaking to Fast Company about the Wii Vitality Sensor, Nintendo of America president and COO Reggie Fils-Aime has said once the software is out there, users will understand what it does.

Fils-Aime said: “And all I can tell you is, with the game developers that we have, we will bring forth an experience that you will say, ‘Wow, I get it.’

“Until you have that software, it’s tough to understand. If I told you that you would be standing on an oversized bathroom scale, and having fun doing it, you probably would have said, ‘Reggie, I don’t get it.’ And yet here we are with the balance board arguably as the third largest development platform across the globe.”

We can’t see the Vitality Sensor achieving anything near the success of the Balance Board, but it’ll be interesting to see what Nintendo has planned.
