    Well, yeah, I like games, but I don't think I'd ever expect a game to make me fit. I go to the gym for that. There's another reason I go to the gym (well, apart from the laydees): it's called social interaction.

    And, anyway: MI6 Marketing Conference? International espionage needs marketing?

    Both of those reasons can be found in a much more entertaining place: The Pub

    Who needs Gyms?

    Yes, but you don't get fit down the pub (well, at least apart from your drinking arm)

    Well, from the looks of your average middle schooler, most of them!

    Ah, but I don't get fit down the Gym either. Have you seen the membership prices?

    I totally agree with him. Have you ever had multiple boxing matches on Wii sports? Smarter? If learning games interest you, then the sorftware is readily available. You can learn French and spanish on the DS or the Wii now! Granted, Nintendo is mainly the one making efforts towards these types of games, but I'm sure they'll all take a shot at it, it's just a matter of time. No everyone has the time to load up and head off to the gym.

    No, no, no, Thacrudd.

    These people only make announcements like this so that we can take the piss out of them.
    Jack Thompson, Mark Rein, Peter Molyneux and now Peter Moore. These aren't real people, they're parodies made up by the good folk at The Onion.

    At least that's how it feels sometimes :p

    Wait, EA made wii fit?

    I find it funny this coming from EA, I'm pretty sure they have made no efforts in any of the areas he mentioned, except maybe the happy one (come on mass effect!).
