In the pursuit of gaming for fun and fitness, Nintendo released its latest exercise platform for the portable, hand-held Nintendo DS.

Personal Trainer: Walking, Nintendo's latest addition to the virtually driven fitness craze, utilizes 'activity meters' to record steps and translate them into personal 'life rhythm' patterns.

Up to four people can store one week's worth of walking info into the DS unit, and import a custom Mii from the Wii Console.

Implications - The 'Personal Trainer: Walking' for Nintendo DS is a great way to encourage physical activity amongst a larger group of people. If you love staying inside and want to sweat it out in front of your TV screen, give the 'Personal Trainer: Walking' a whirl and see how fun it can be.
