I also have both games and use both. Exerbeat has more butt kicking workouts and you can add hand weights etc to make them even tougher. The hip hop and aerobic parts are tough. Walk it Out is easier, but again, I add a resistance band or weights to make it more of a workout.
Both of these can be found on Amazon with free shipping.

I have WiO - just recently finished all of the challenges, and moved on to EA Active 2 - it's seriously kicking my butt. . I also use WiiFit Plus and Zumba Dance Party. I did see Walk It Out on Amazon.com the other day for $19.99, so they must have re-released it.

Well, I haven't been able to find either title locally. I have tried a couple of Walmarts, Best Buy and two Gamestops. The guy at Gamestop said the closest Exerbeat was 90 minutes away and across the state line! LOL. I guess I will be looking online.
I did sell back two games and picked up both of the Gold Gym workouts (Cardio and Dance), plus My Fit Coach 2. Only spent $22 on all that, so I was pretty happy with that deal. I also picked up Country Dance at WM. I really like that one. Most of the songs are little easier than Just Dance...but that is okay, I just have to do more songs at the lower intensity. I kind of prefer it that way, actually.
Maybe with the four new workout options I won't even need to track down Exerbeat or WIO.

Thanks for all the replies. If I knew anyone to borrow these games from that would be helpful. We don't have a Blockbuster to rent them from either. I have WATP videos for indoor walking; so maybe I'll go for the better variety with Exerbeat. :) THANKS!
I just got the Exerbeat, adn tried it once. I think it will be lots of fun. The WIO is nice because it works with my Rheumatoid really well. I can take my time and enjoy the walking. It may get boring down the road, but for now it works. I'm still trying different things on my WiiFit+. Over all, I am utilizing my Wii everyday, and that is what matters for me. Can you rent or borrow these two from someone to see which you like better? Or maybe trade out with someone you know?

I have both games and love both games. Those are the two I use the most. Exerbeat has more variety. WIO is going to cost you unless you can find it used somewhere used as it is no longer being produced. Exerbeat is fairly inexpensive.

I don't have either but I did have WIO and didn't really get into it. I've heard a few good reviews on Exerbeat and I was thinking of inheriting it in June. I enjoy the Wii Golds Gym Dance too. Theres some latin dance moves and boxing. You can make up your own routines too.
I like exerbeat better. I tried WIO at my daughter's and didn't get tired and also didn't really get into the game. They love it, but she got exerbeat for her birthday. Exerbeat has so many different activities and I can get a pretty good workout. ( and lots of fun even if the "trainers" don't think I'm doing it right. ) Pam
