Angry Nintendo goes after Smokers....



Nintendo really wants to make the world a better place.
Not content with making stupid people smarter with Brain Training
and fat people thinner with Wii Fit,............. it's now going after smokers.

As of November, those hoping to kick the habit will be able to purchase
Allen Carr's Easyway to Stop Smoking for Nintendo DS.

Based on a popular range of books and DVDs, it will seek to help smokers find
the psychological reasons and motivations behind their habit.

Mini-games will also educate the player on the negative impact of smoking
and show them the extent of the damage they have caused to their body
by nipping outside for a stick once a day.

"The player experiences a truly interactive engagement with the game through
which he or she learns that it can actually be enjoyable to quit smoking,"
said Christian Salomon, vice-president of worldwide licensing at Ubisoft.

As a group of ex-smokers replied; "We can categorically say that Salomon
has never smoked a cigarette in his life." Seems as though they do not agree
that this game would work. Not even a videogame can make giving up smoking enjoyable.
Unless you're taking your frustrations out on it.

How, do you feel of Nintendo's present and continuing foray into getting
it's gamers into "Fit" shape? As Marvman is an ex smoker himself,
this does not seem like a good idea.

Rockn.

OxyMoron will become famous soon enough

This is stupid. I'm not a regular smoker, and an occasional toker, but this is a dumb idea on Nintendo's part. I'd be surprised if ONE person quits smoking because of a video game.

Actually this game is being developed by UbiSoft,
but it is being published by Nintendo...

Go figure...

Ghost We have a Nintendo Fan in the Making

It doesnt really matter does it? As soon as a game is shipped to stores, the store must pay for the game. Then, its up to the store to sell it. If it doesnt sell, the game makers still get their loot, but the store loses money, and its all about the money.

i should let my parents borrow my DS for this lol. They still wouldnt quit, they know what's happening to them

its not a great idea. WiiFit is good for excersising and stuff. thers not much need for a game that helps to quit smoking.
and i dont think it will sell that well.

BIM is an unknown quantity at this point

Well I can say as a an ex-smoker that it doesn't matter what your support is, if you don't want to quit you won't quit, having said that if someone is determined then this might help so it can't hurt can it

This is unnecessary. Nintendo should just stick to their fun games...
