I purchased the Wii Fit in January. It almost lived up to my expectations. The Balance Board is a bit sketchy. It seems too fragile, and won't supposrt weight over 320 Lbs. Luckily, I'm excluded from this discrimination.
The 'activities' that come 'unlocked' with the game, are quite basic. Balancing, push-ups, and basic yoga poses, to start. After several hours of these annoying activities, I managed to unluck some more interesting 'activities', such as sking, ski jumping, and other more exciting events.
Nintendo has released many new, exciting, and innovating features in the world of gaming. With the 2008 Holiday Season release of the Wii Fit, Nintendo hit one out of the park. Not only the Wii console, but their biggest seller, The Fit, couldn't be found on any store shelves, or even on websites like Amazon.com or ebay.com. This product from Nintendo certainly helped the gaming console company make millions in the last quarter of 2008, and the first quarter of 2009, and also is helping many fat kids, lose a few of those extra pounds.
