Get fit in May

Get fit in May

According to reports, Wii Fit will launch in North America on May 20th, along with the balance board accessory (possibly a supersized one).

The fitness based game is already a runaway (ha) success in Japan, where it has sold over a million units in just over a month.

Wii Fit users hope to improve their body mass indexes (BMI) and general fitness through standing on the balance board and performing exercises like push ups, yoga, aerobics, heading soccer balls and ski jumps.

A bit late, but people still hoping to follow through with the Fast Food Nation's #1 New Year's Resolution might like it.

I think they should increase the weight limit on the Wii Fit mat just in case.

I'm just waiting for it so I can see some amazing opportunities open up to the Wii Balance Board.

This is a.. different kind of game. I didn't expect it to do well. And I like the pun.

That's really really late. But I guess they got to do what they got to do.

What are the Japanese going to do with the game? I mean, most of the population is already fit, about 85-90 percent?

Yes. That's just 2 weeks 3 days before my birthday. Hey, at least I benefit from this.

Oh my god, you think we'll be able to use the balance board for sonic riders zero gravity? Man that stuff will be nuts. And bolts (ha).


akash said:

I'm also a fat ass so I'll buy this.

They probably made it longer it to increase the weight limit.

I think it's fine. It'll give me time to save up money.
