    i dont really get this, but it seems like a cool idea but i dont think it would change much. it dont seem like like it would attract peoples attention that much. it will probably just cost people more money for something that is cool, but not that productive.

    i think its stupid cuz a lot of stuff could happen like it could over heat and the person could blow up. and it is stupid cuz its not like a lot of other games and not a lot of people will like it.people might love the idea of the shows but the idea of them benning a game i don’t think people will like that.

    People will love the shoes.Then they will hate it. Because the shoes can over heat. You can die wearing the shoes. Because you can get on FIRE THEN YOU WILL DIE. So don’t buy the shoes.

    ii think it would truly change the meaning of gaming because peole instead of jus using the Wii remote for things like runni you can use the nike shoes for Wii Fit and for other activies when using the Wii.

    i guess its a cool idea. i mean i can see a whole lot of people playing. but i don’t think it will change how people feel about gaming because theyre just another part to a game to me. and theyre just going to create more stuff.

    I think people will get into. Because it is different because you can play with your shoes and you don’t have to hold anything in your hands. its on your feet. i think people will like it cause its different.

    That would be so cool if people could play video games without a controller. I mean, if they get rid of the wires that you could trip over! Hey, that’s kind of like the Kinect for XBOX. I think it would be a lot easier to wear the controller than to hold it and drop it and bump it into things. It would really get you up and moving around instead of sitting on the couch, eating potato chips and getting fat while you’re playing video games.

    I think its an alright idea . I think its a pretty cool idea having a wii parts in your shoe . But the bad thing about it is that some people might forget that they have them on and they might go out side when its raining and then get shocked ! Its something that i might enjoy trying out but i dont think its something that would stay popular for a while.

    I think it is a dumb idea. I think it is dumb because you are risking your life to play a stupid video game. Your foot will get all and sweaty and its gonna make your feet smell really bad. Also what if your foot grows because your body is still developing then you have to go buy another special shoe for the game thats just going to cost you more money. This is one of the stupidest things Ive ever heard!

      That is a good idea. It would be cool to have this because it would be easier on games such as skateboarding games or snowboarding games. I like to have a new kind of technology like this but i do agree with some other people that the wii board is funner but this is a great idea. I would feel way different because it would be on my feet but i would enjoy useing the new foot wii. I think they should try it out for a while and see if they make money but first i would put a demo in stores to let people try it out.

    i don’t think that that is a very smart idea. the shoes if not wired properly can over heat and cause severe damage to ur feet. it would probably also feel weird. people will probably like it at first until someone gets hurt. then they will hate it and no one will buy them.

    I think that it is cooler than using a wii remote. It changes the world of gaming as we know it. Technology is growing everyday, so why not put it into our clothes and accessories? It is a very wise and unique idea that would sell quickly in the market. It also helps people get more active with their video games. Which is great. 😄

    I feel that this is a very good way to get in shape. These shoes are a stylish way to play a game. From experience i have been on wii fit board is very hard to stay on. Also you want to move and the balance board isn’t capable of moving where you want to. Another advantage is that nike is very popular which means everyone will buy them
