Well if any of you have a game crazy store near you just wanted to let you know that you can reserve it there. That sucks that game stop/eb games is not able to reserve it for you. I am making sure that I get mine the day it comes out. Good luck on Rock band that game is so much fun.

Oh My Goodness BMMOWERS,

I have it on GOOD authority that the higher level you get on the drums, the harder it is!

A hawk selects its prey as carefully as a falcon. Stalks it with the same unerring conviction. And fails as frequently - which is never.

I choose, I commit, I pursue, I adhere, I attain. And that, is an absolute.

I just tried last Monday I beleive to reserve it at gamestop (thats really what we have here) and they aren't taking reserves for it yet. One of the employees said that they had started to a few weeks ago but the scan code or soemthing isnt in the system anymore so you cant do it. I will have to check back and see if I can. I want to get this things asap. I will be at the store like when it opens to get this... I even plan on taking off from work to play it all day... wow- I am turning into a gamer!! HAHA

Just wanted to let everyone know that if your interested in reserve Wii fit and you have Game Crazy nearby that it would probrably be a good idea to reserve it. 5 dollars to reserve it. You can put down more if you want.

I really want this title - for two reasons,

first, I think it will make a hilarious LOLCat picture when one of my two cats steps on the platform while the game is on "I can has xersize?"

Second, I think balance and form are really what I want to work on next.

I echo the "patience is not my strong suit" sentiment

I read that article. It only made me want the game more. :-(

If I remember correctly, the author had some issues with the game, but he thought it was still pretty good. Of course, he was playing the Japanese version, so there might be some changes before it gets to the states.

I know. It would have been a big seller to have that available January first with everyone making new year resolutions. We will see when Nintendo finally decides to deliver it to the states.

Well importing it from japan will not help since it will not be compatible to play with the US Wii. Just wanted to let you know that before you try to import it.

I've read that it won't be out till summer and that they are working on making it a stronger board, as suggested by the Japanese, for the US market as they are afraid it will not be able to cope with the weight of the average american, let alone the overweight american. Which I think is a good idea. After all, there are some out there close to 400 pounds which will wish to use this. Also the board looks pretty small. People with big thighs (coughs and points to self) worry about standing upon it. BUT I WANT IT NOW (ahem)... If the boxing kicks my ass so much, then Wii Fit may perhaps be the death of me!

Wishing you all you wish for in 2008. -NG

The board comes with a scale and other such hardware to measure weight, BMI, and even the users center of gravity. Most scales that do that only go up to 300. The ones that go higher are more expensive. So to keep cost down they may have gone with 300 lbs. So its probably not the board supporting the weight thats an issue but rather the board measuring it. Sucks because it will mean I'll need to wait until I get to that weight to even use it. I hope they do bump it to 330 as thats closer for me.

That is an interesting question about the DDR Pads. I am not really sure if they have weight limits. I am sure they are somewhat resemble a over size calculator that just have a chip to chip contact to activate the move. I guess you wouldnt need a weight limit unless that chip will break under pressure. LOl.

May 20th?! I've been waiting for this thing to come out pretty soon :( what a downer... I did find a copy of PS2's Eye Toy & Kinetics game for $9 at Circuit City, so that made me a little happier. I guess I'll have to settle for a brain game for the wii this month.

Did they really have to increase the weight limit for the Wii Balance Board? It's kinda funny, but at the same Idea the higher it can handle the better it will be. Do DDR pads have a weight limit?

I did a little digging today. Wii Fit apperently passed the 1 million unit sold mark in Japan today. Which means something like 1 in 5 Japanese Wii owners now have a copy. Most sites I saw said that no North American release date had been set yet. And doubted that sales in North America would be as high (although provided fairly lame support to this argument). The final site I checked listed May 20th as the release date and suggested the delay was because the Japanese version of the balance board only supports people weighing up to 300 lbs and they want to be able to support 330 for the NA release. No idea what their sources are.

I'd assumed the board was built with a solid bit underneath that sat on the floor. If it has little legs on it, then carpet wouldn't be an issue. I think it would be uncharacteristically bad design on Nintendo's part if household carpet wasn't considered in the design. Of course I have hardwood in my living room so as long as it won't scratch it, I'm not worried.

Could use the mats that go under like office chairs? That seams safer than plywood... no splinters or anything. And you can roll it up when your done for easy storage.

That is a good question to ask. How will it work on carpet. The carpet you see in the promo is that carpet used in most office buildings. The flat non fluffy kind. Good question. I guess I will have to invest in some plywood or something along that line.

I'll be working on figuring out how to use it on my carpet between now and the time it's released... Yeah, a piece of plywood would work, but I'm already having to put the ddr pads behind the couch...

Nintendo has kept really quiet about a release date for Wii Fit. I have yet to hear of a release date for this game. Our computers have a date of January 1st but I think the game may have been pushed back till maybe mid January to early February.

I hoped they might push it up too, didn't they release Guitar Hero for Wii early? Not that you can find one...
I want the Fit. Then I have to come up with a way around the no gaming on school days. I think it'll be the exception.

I really though it was going to come out this month or in janauary. Too bad this would be a good way to lose weight earlier than later.

I've got my fingers crossed for it too. I suspect we're going to have to take a risk on it as I suspect the traditional game reviews won't know what to make of it.

Brenda, I know that it will be great. Reason being is that it is a great tool for us to work out. I would rather they take the time to perfect the system before sending it out. Nintendo has been very secretative on release dates lately. My store doesn't even have the release date in the system.

I bought Mario Galaxy on Tuesday and asked them at the game store and they said they did not have a date but they heard it would be towards the beginning of next year- with pushback probably late winter early spring at the latest. Who knows. I can't believe there is not more hpye about it. No commercials, no real websites that are going nuts about it... nothing. Im starting to wonder if its going to be so great or not...

After consulting Google, I found someone who says they pre-ordered Wii Fit through Amazon and he was recently told that they were now expecting their shipment to arrive on 2/1/2008. That is, however, not an official source, so I kept looking.

Gamespot has the official US release date as "TBA". Boo. It is, however, supposed to retail for $70--including game and balance board.

I'm going with February.

Perhaps our paths will cross, and we may walk together for a while.

Does anyone know if this will be out by then or has it been pushed back. I tried to check it in or computer at the game store and it has some crazy price of 777 dollars. LOL. I know thats wrong but I could not pull up a date for it.

Did you see the spoof on WiiFit on YouTube? It's kind of funny, but the guy who did it obviously has never played WiiSports and worked up a sweat at it.

Your right about having to shower after playing the game. That one game alone makes me break a sweat. Keep up the good work.

Oh man I never though of using it for that game. That would be so cool. Geez. Great thinking outside of the box there. You might want to pitch that to Nintendo for a game possiblity.

Hi ChefBlue, welcome to the group :)

I am really looking forward to this game, could you imagine the possibilities for this game? It adds some really cool capabilities for a creative programmer (imagine riding around on the green goblin's glider in a game?) It looks like a great game and I can't wait to add it to my library

The cost for the game and pad is set at 69.99 right now. Who knows if the price of it will go up before it comes out. I guess January 1st being the New Year and everyone wanting to make New Years resolutions of losing weight is the reason for Nintendo making the release then.

Yeah this is a pretty good workout for all Wii Owners. They are really kicking butt in expanding their audience base. As you saw in the video there are people of ages playing the Wii. This is really catching on. Maybe Sony and Microsoft can learn from them.

Wii Fit is sort of a small scale like device that includes exercises that will be used with both your wii controllers and by you standing or stepping in the pad. With this scale like pad it will measure your weight, calculate your BMI, and analyze your posture. Telling you if you put most of your weight to the right or left leg or if you on your toes or back of the foot. It looks really good. The game will include stuff like YOGA, Soccor(which is the one I am looking forward to since your the goalie) Step areobic, and some other things. For the YOGA you stand on the pad and you follow the instruction on the screen. The pad will tell you if your doing it right and will work very specific body parts. I will try to get you alink to it.
