    Well after looking hard i finnaly found some wii fit sales numbers. I was interested after hearing that no more heros floped so i wanted to make sure that this didnt meet the same demise. Well it looks as its doing well because interestingly enough it is outselling mario galaxy along with some other interesting games that i don't think should be out selling mario.

    It may just be me but something is just not right Galaxy is in the number 8 spot behind Lost odessy? that game was awfull Well lets hear what you think.

    UPDATE: After watchint these vids i don't think im interested in wii fit any more. Not for a $75 price tag. i think i deserve a little more than that. Judge for yourself. Im sure lots of women will love this though.

    AS a disabled person, i find myself interested in this game. I see wii fit like i see wii sports or wiiplay. demo games that games that came with the machines to show what it can do. the true potentail is in thr board itself. think of all the cool gaming aplication that can be done with it.

    With a game like NMH, if Japan doesn't like it, that's usually a good sign that I will :D.

    As far as Wii Fit goes, I never had any plans to buy it in the first place. The board is a static piece of plastic on the ground. It doesn't tilt/swivel/turn/rotate, so I don't see myself having fun on it, as it seems too restricted in the movements it can pull off. You can only lean in games, you can't do anything else really.

    But like I've said in other posts, I can see how some people would enjoy it.

    I think that the only thing in Wii Fit that could be worth it would be the board. The problem is the board will be completely useless to me unless another game gets released that needs it. When that time comes we will see what the price of the board is compared the the price of Wii Fit.

    Oh you mean like Rock Band. It looks freaking awesome-if you enjoy other consoles of course-but for the price and to only be able to use it on one game seems ridiculous.
    Now I do think that the Wii Fit board will have other options outside of the Fit game. Surfing, skateboarding, countless minigames-bleh, and some interaction to be used alongside or in conjunction with something like Dance Dance Revolution.

    go Jimbo lol.

    cheapest possible games in UK are $40 and they are the extreme bargain bin games and the likes of links crossbow training and endless ocean.

    but on average our games like between $60-$80

    with some of the remakes/ smaller games being $50 likes of RE4, fruit fall

    and the deerer games like Gutar hero and say wii fit are/will be around $100

    so stop moaning lol.

    also our wii points are more exspensive aswell. $14 for 1000

    our wii is $360
    originally our PS3's were $900.

    Their bound to bring out more games that uses it, they wouldn't just make the one game for the board, like romj said wiifit is just like wiisports or wiiplay, it's introducing you to the board and showing off what it can do =]

    And great post dude! I been wanting to see how well it did so thanks :)

    Dude if you have to pay that much for your games then i would protest nintendo! Thats like sticking a giant pool stick up your ass! half the games for the wii arent even worth their $30 price tag yet alone $50 but you guys have to pay $80 and up thats just robbery. Now i see why they put the regional locks on to stop you from importing because that would be the first thing i do when i saw that price! How much did you pay for the system? You guys should realy be mad about the crap games thats out. But then you guys are probely mad that you are just now getting some of the good games. That realy sucks

    Nintendo releases a gaming devices that is aimed at the non-traditional gamer, but can be used for traditional games, increasing their piles of profit and bring more and more people into gaming. Hardcore game boys are shocked! News at 11!!

    Maybe you guys should do some Googling.

    Firstly, the reason No More Heroes isn't doing so hot in Japan is they have a dumbed down version, what I mean by that is they have the less violent one that the Europeans get as well.

    As for Wii Fit, personally I am looking forward to it.
    It has quite the bunch of interesting games.
    I will be buying it.

    Lol I know this is off topic but I was reading this and saw all the prices for things. I payed $420 for my Wii package which was all the stuff you usually get with the console and Zelda: TP, so basically I got the Wii for the normal price over here of $360 and payed $60 for the extra game. I couldn't believe what I was seeing on here in other threads aswell, like PS3s for $400! What's that like around £200 here! Just £20 more than a Wii from here lol! Onto Wii Fit anyway, on here I heard $75, so that's like just over £37.50 here, the price of a brand new game with no new hardware like the mat/board whatever you want to call it.

    So, good thread anyway, as my friends generally get games before me I will probably play it at a friend's house around launch time in the U.K. I would like to have it but will probably wait a while after launch to get it for myself.

    Can i just comment on the uk and us prices. We in the uk get paid alot more than the average American, if we had their wage over there and the games at that price we wouldn't notice as we would have less cash to spend. The pound is alot stronger than the dollar so both sides stop moanin and get on with some gaming!

    Thats nice and all but its not worth $75 bucks and those games arent anywhere near release of even been started yet. Yes i see the potential for the thing but why not wait till it is more games for it. Third parties are having a hard enough time as it is as some of you say getting the controlls right for the wiimote yet alone to bring another device in.( i think its just lazyness and not difficulty) Im not shocked that it did well i new it was going to do well but to out sell the best game there is and at that price for the wii is verry sad and that alone shows you the state of gaming. As of right now its not worth the $75 dollars hopefully before its release here there will be more games for it than just the disk that comes with it.

    wow hold on now all that was taken out was the actual blood and replaced with black pixels. so wouldnt that go against what some of you believe that blood makes the game better? NOt throwing any thing against you but that was just a big argument that every one like to throw around that just cause it has blood and gore doesnt make it better. so like wise it still should be the same game just without blood, and a few body parts being chopped off. shouldnt harm the gameplay that much should it?

    No no, I am just saying that some people may prefer blood to pixels, and may have been disappointed with the change.

    Plus it would help the "kiddie" image out a bit, with the blood no? :lol:
