Protip: This is not how you use a Pokewalker

0

Pokémon SoulSilver and HeartGold launched this Saturday in Japan, and already people are finding ways to cheat. The image above is somebody using the Pokéwalker -- a pedometer that's bundled with the DS remakes -- in a nefarious manner, cheating both Nintendo and his own physical fitness in order to win at games while failing at life.

The Pokéwalker transmits data to your DS, measuring your real-life footsteps and translating them to in-game rewards. Theoretically, it's a great way to promote walking and getting gamers up on their feet. In reality, it allows people to expend their efforts elsewhere, namely coming up with inventive ways to get out of a little exercise.

You have to admire the ingenuity at play here. Oh, and the games are selling out already in many major parts of the country.
