You can play the jogging in two player.

My copy (finally!) arrived today.
I was sat in the dining room studying on my laptop keeping an eye out for the courier.

I've gone through all of the exercises and games that are available from the start, and I'm really impressed. The board is pretty sturdy and it's really responsive to your movements.

Any game that tells me that I'm at my ideal weight is a friend of mine.

My opinion? I think that's pretty high. In my own self-appraisal, the Wii Fit software is worth about $40, and the rest that you're paying for is a $50 advanced bathroom scale. It's ridiculous.

Of course, that won't stop me from getting it right away, even if it makes me feel worse about the product.
Thats not a bad price...compared to what you pay if you buy a home gym system or even are a member at a gym which I am.

I've just been playing it for *checks game* 21 minutes!

I've only had a few brief attempts at some of the games. Yes, I actually began to tire! It works!

So far, the jogging game wore me out the most, but it's pretty fun. You could just stand there and shake the Wii remote, but where's the fun/point in that?

Second mention goes to the surprisingly difficult Heading game, where you're heading soccer balls, while avoiding the players shoes flying towards you! It's certainly one I need improvement on, but even after 3 quick goes, you can see improvement in your balance.

And just when you thought you couldn't look any more stupid than you do play Wii Sports, the Hula Hoop game comes along! Ha!

Finally, the Table Tilt is a tough one, with the aim being to roll Mii balls in to hole in a table, that, surprise surprise, you tilt! After a couple of stages, more Mii balls are added, with more holes to pick from. Good fun.

Re: Wii Fit Weighs in at $90 for US

Anyone who complains about the 90$ price tag, expect me to hunt you down and hit you in the head with a hammer.

Seriously 90$ is NOTHING! That's even less than the average wii game over here.

Wii Fit over here cost almost the double. 170$, to be (more or less) precise. So ya... shut up. Seriously.

There's a big difference between Wii Fit and a membership to a gym.

Oh, and 90 copies of Wii Fit are being sold per minute in the UK. That's insane.

I don't play video games to work out, dammit. That defeats the whole purpose.

Wait. $90? You think that's expensive? Over here, it's 70 ($140, approx). 50 dollars more. And it's even worse where Hombre is, by the look of it.

Pre-orders in nearly every shop in the UK that stocks Wii Fit sold out within a few days. Yes, it's popular. It's predicted to become the best-selling Wii game in this country so far within a month or two, I think.

Yep, Nintendo has only been working on Wii Fit, nothing else. And this would only benefit fat people. Damn them.

Oh wait...

Re: Wii Fit Weighs in at $90 for US

It costs $150 in Australia, there's no way I'm buying that piece of ****. And theres no way I'll get anything out of it. This is the sort of stuff that casuals with obesity will play.

But to be honest, this generation Nintendo have been and are still to be market geniuses. First it was getting casuals on to the market with the DS and brain training games and then it was the Wii and Wii sports. Now they are appealing to the people that want to get out and do some exercise. It's f***ing working! What next?

And here I am living in the past and dreaming about the greatness Zelda was, with my eyes opened and watching Nintendo go in a completely new direction. Simple fact, Nintendo aren't the same company any longer.

Lately its just struck me that as a full, hardcore Zelda fan that we would actually benefit more, if Nintendo had folded from the home console wars and just created games for the PlayStation and Xbox. This way they would have much more time to concentrate on perfecting their games and we'd see top notch 100/100 games from them every year. Unless Nintendo can prove me wrong with their next Wii installment of Zelda.

Re: Wii Fit Weighs in at $90 for US

Well, I got my copy of the game today for my mom. I haven't tried it out yet, but impressions will follow, I guess.

Oh my god. Housewives and Soccer Moms go crazy when Ellen gives away WiiFit. Holy crap. Who should one be more afraid of? Mascot Ellen or the Soccer Moms?
