Nintendo has been pretty quiet in the matter of community, so far, looking at number of Wii’s larger base of customers. They tried launching their Check Mii Out Channel and Everybody Votes Channel but they turned to be real flops. However it was but a relief that atleast there was an effort from Nintendo to break this silence, hints Nintendo of America President, Reggie Fils-Aime.
According to Reggie, Nintendo always had a vision on community and it is going to deliver it to its customers which are unique to Nintendo. This slow move towards community will not have any dramatic impact on Wii sales. Still it is good to know that Nintendo is thinking about it. Stacked up against Xbox Live and PSN, Nintendo is certainly lacking some community features.
Sega released a promotional video demonstration the gameplay of Let’s Tap. The game may be widely known for its whacky title but the music is brilliant to draw us and the trapping is great as it allows us to interact with that music. The video clip highlights the Rhythm Tapping, Tap Runner, and Visualizer Modes. There are glimpses of other modes as well.
The goal of Wii has been achieved through this game which is that the game is possible for any age to enjoy and so Wii has put a family together to deliver this message. There are only few other games which can provide such a cool and futuristic look and such an interesting input method.
Wii is now being also used by Dr. Rick Dale, a psychologist from the University of Memphis in his experiment to study the relationship between the mind and the body.
Dr. Dale used Wii in a variety of experiments and it helped to map how our brains handle think and action and that both are intertwined. He did some other experiment as well in which he found that Wii users had a “bias toward truth” which means that they had a natural tendency to think that whatever they were presented was the truth. The participants would use the Wiimote to decide whether a statement was true or false and it was found that each person wanted to believe that the statement was true even if it was false. Well, we will need time to understand these things but it’s good to know the console has now penetrated the medical field also.
