    I would never use the wii for exercise though, unless you played wii sports for hours I doubt you'd get that much exercise.

    Yeah, and I'm also better at basketball if I don't dribble. Doesn't mean that I should.

    Also when Wiifit is released that will be able to give you quite a sweat.

    But for most games where we just sit on a couch flicking our wiimote than yes its true :P
    Tip of the day:
    A big mistake a lot of you make is that wiiware games will be free.

    Wiiware is just the same like the virtual console. Its different in that it offers new games instead of old console games.

    I can think of some easy games ( Like tetris and some other in that direction ) that can be free but the majority will cost money.

    i would say thats true but maybe 10% even if you play most games a constant flick of the wrist has ti di simething compared to doing nothing on other consoles.

    and wii sports has to be like 100% becease you actual sweat.

    and the only thing in wiifit to brake a sweat is the jogging i cant see standing on one leg making me collapse of exhaustion

    Wii Sports Experiment

    He has also thought about doing a second experiment using DDR:Hottest Party. He's been using Traineo.com to track progress.


    If you do the sports correctly, you get some exercise. If you add wrist and ankle weights, you can increase your workout. WiiFit has a Yoga program. Yoga focuses on your core (stomach) area and is a good workout that doesn't require weights. If you strengthen your core, you are more likely to exercise more efficiently. And a lot of gamers need to strengthen their cores. I can see WiiFit being very helpful in making sure people do the correct moves while doing Yoga.

    But the Wii isn't meant for exercise, so I think this company is just flaming the Wii, because they are targeting a part of it that nobody really uses. Who really exercises on the Wii? Other then hardcore wii sports players I doubt any everyday player actually does.

    For me, my exercise = weights, pushups, crunches, and running
