I have had the new one for about two weeks now, and I am really enjoying it. The old one really got a workout, but it was getting boring. The new routines/activities are fun, and some are very challenging. I wish they'd done more with the step aerobics option, but I do love the rhythm kung fu. A nice alternative to the boxing, which is also a good workout.

Wii on!

It doesn't look like the aerobic exercises are part of the batching process yet for the custom workout.

I'm still working on getting through things before I give a thumbs up and down... but so far, it's a definite step forward for WiiFit, though there are still things they can add to make it better.

Mine got here today. I set up a 30 minute workout and it was great going through it without having to go back to the menu between exercise. But I couldn't figure out how to set up a custom workout and select aerobic exercises. I could only choose yoga and strength. did I miss something? After selecting a few things, it asked how long I wanted to workout and then it added things.... not what I was expecting.
But the new things that I tried were good. I think I will like the rythym kung-fu!

Sherri I hate the game you're referring to because it's hard to do...but it just gives me something to work on and at the same times it's working your arms out really good

I saw it on the Sunday morning news the archors were trying out a new balance game where you had to be a bird and flap your arm like the were wings so you could fly from one platform to another. I knew something was up because last week they lowered the price on the wii and wii fit. I like it gives you routines. For $20 I'm getting it. Let us know more as you play around with it.

There are new workouts about 15 I think...there are still the old workouts on there beccause what happens is when you first put the disk in it merges your old account with the new wii fit plus account so you lose nothing and I like that

It is also a choice to switch between users with having to start the system over...total it claims to have over 60 activities...It has multiplayer mode so ppl can play together...and I'm sorry that I just can't think of what the new games and yoga and strenght moves are called but I tried several of them and liked them...

I counted the new stuff this morning 15 new games 3 new yoga and strenght moves nothing new for the aerobics yet maybe wii fit plus plus will new moves for that

I hope this helps you with any decision you make it is well worth the 20 bucks

Tema,

does it still have all the workouts that we know from the 'old' WiiFit?
I'd love the combine option but since I also have the EA Sports Active game now I wasn't sure if the WiiFit Plus is basically just like an 'upgrade' to the former version, you know?

What are the new workouts? Could you please give any examples? :)

Thank you!

Val

I got the game today and if you like the basic one you will love the new one...I love the fact that you can make the time longer if you choose the combine option...I saw where I could do up to 80 mins long it may even go longer....Let me know what you all think of it....

I've pre-ordered it, and am looking forward to getting it. I like that it has a way of setting workout times, rather than having to navigate from one activity to the next.

I'll be waiting to hear some feedback from those of you who have bought the WiiFit Plus as I've got 2 other games (EA sports and Gold Gym) on my wish list and would love to have those first. I'm sure I'm wrong, but somehow the Fit Plus does just look like a more updated version of the current game, no?

Yes, it was hard to find on Amazon without the mat - you would think they would both come up, but I hunted around and found it.

I ordered mine today! Also ordered one for my daughter. We each have the balance board, so I just ordered the $20 version. Thrilled with the price. I was afraid it would be closer to $35. The Active Life Extreme Challenge is about that without the mat. I thought this would be more expensive. I hope the low price doesn't equal low quality!!!

I thought I'd give everyone a heads up that Amazon sent me a message today that WiiFit Plus is available for pre-order with an expected release date of October 4, 2009. This is much quicker than I thought it was to be released!

Price for game & new balance board is 99.99. Price for just game only is $19.99. I'm ordering with the board just so I have a backup in case anything goes wrong with the one... but it's a good price for just the game only.

There is a 1:30 commercial for the game on that page... I am amused by the pets being added as a Mii. *chuckle*
