WiiNintendo featured at E3

“Featured” may be a strong word, but there was a lot of talk about the Wii and fitness.  My videos, story, and news clippings were featured a couple times. Here’s what Reggie said in an interview with G4:

“Our objective with Wii Fit is all about expanding the audience and taking advantage of what our consumers are already doing with Wii Sports, they’re using it to workout and lose weight this [Wii Fit] just drives it in a whole new way”

That may or may not have been a direct nod to WiiNintendo’s Wii Sports Experiment.  I know that Reggie and all of Nintendo were “briefed” about my experiment back in January because I was in talks with the PR department of Nintendo of America about a possible book deal and I was told that everyone at Nintendo was aware of my experiment and loved it.

After I posted a video of the entire Nintendo E3 keynote speech, I was alerted by a reader that I was in the video behind Reggie as he talked about the success of the Wii and it’s fitness aspects (at about the 21:00 mark), below are some stills from the speech with me in them (and my girlfriend…I mean fiance) and below each E3 still is the actual video still they used:

Along with the footage of me they also displayed news paper articles about me and newscasts about the Wii Sports Experiment too.  I believe I counted about 6 total clips I was in.

Thanks Nintendo!

    Haha, I envy you… No, really, I do.

    Now, you pick up the phone, and tell them to let you publish the book in exchange for them using your videos without permission in e3 :P
