If Nintendo pulls it off and sells it for $80 they are geniuses.

You mean 'Go outside and walk around.'? I'm getting that, plus the 'Eat properly.' downloadable content looks good to.

Will look good next to my current 'Bike riding' and 'Rowing' collections I have now.

Actually no, She needs 2 sets of bathroom scales to tell her weight.

So I just buy her a hula hoop and its all sorted

Apparently people in the US seem to want this thing pretty badly.

If only gym memberships sold as fast as this thing, then maybe I wouldn't have to pay extra to get new suits cut and tailored as a punishment for actually being in shape.

It does measure the balance too, so it's probably something like 4 scales, maybe even 6 or so.

Nintendo has really shown off masterful marketing this generation, but they do spend a lot on the marketing. I heard Nintendo is spending between 250 and 500 million dollars on the Wii Fit campaign, which means they might only break about even on the game. Obviously there was no R&D money spent.

I've been playing it with my family for the past few days. It's actually a really clever piece of kit and I don't see why you guys want put it down so much.

With the family, the mini games were a lot of fun but Wii Fit doesn't focus on the the game side of things. It's definitely the most innovative 'game' I've used so far on the Wii, and definitely worth the money for people who want to keep track of their weight or lose weight while having fun. I don't actually need to lose weight, but some of my family do and they left my house saying they were going to get it for themselves because it does what no exercise DVD or video does... it lets you enjoy yourself while you keep fit.

It's definitely not for everyone... if you're a hardcore gamer and you're looking for another game to play then I don't really recommend it. If you're looking for something different and quite like the idea of having a workout at the same time, then I do recommend it. I had the 'pleasure' of reading an older thread where people said only idiots would go for it. I've never read anything so ****ing absurd in my entire life. Some people just find it easier to rip ideas apart than to give them a try. It happened with the Wii Remote, Six axis and now this. If it makes a game even more fun to play, then why the hell not?

Oh, and no it isn't just a set of scales. If you actually bothered to play it or at least look up how it works, you'd realise how the Wii 'scales' are actually different from normal ones. I know it's hard to come to terms with it... but it actually works quite well with games

OK, actually I do. You're mostly PC gamers so you would try your hardest to put it down.

Just kidding...

I put it down because it is honestly stupid. Why pay that money for something a 5 dollar scale can do, along with some freaking walking? It just makes no sense to me to pay that much for a scale.
