I think it was very smart of Ninty to elaborate so much, as you said, on Fit opposed to the titles they already knew were going to sell zillions. With word getting out of a game such as Wii Fitness, it'll draw in tons of more non-gamers that see it worthwhile to buy a cheap console and an innovative game such as this one.
Nintendo may be a money whore, but they're a smart money whore.
Great article, Corey. Enjoyable as always.
