Stadium Events by Nintendo
Back in the days when people were used to simple two-dimensional games, Nintendo had a very interesting game that came with a mat. You could literally perform some of the athletic events on the mat and the characters replicated them. It was a way to gain fitness with fun. Bandai released the game in 1987 and Nintendo bought the rights of the game and the mat in 1988.
To live up to their reputation, Nintendo named the game as WorldClass Track Meet and re-released it. They called the mat as the Power pad controller. In order to sell their product without competition they pulled back the prior version called the Stadium events and destroyed them. So, the 200 copies that were sold became rare.
