    I have been considering buying a Wii. My wife and I are interested in the fitness programs it offers. Is there only one Wii hardware configuration or are there multiple hardware configurations like you find with XBox 360 and Playstation 3?

    I ask because I find some stores selling the Wii for $350 and every once in a while a great deal for $99. It makes me wonder, what's the difference when they are both called Wii?

    My wife is specifically asking for Wii Fit, but is that a new version of the Wii, or is it a bundle? The day I found the Wii for $99 I found what I thought could be the Fit package for $60. This is raising my suspicion when I see the Wii Fit listed for $350. I suspect I do not understand the variations in the hardware. I'd like to understand it all before making a purchasing the wrong thing.

    Cheers,
    Scott

    There is only one model of the Wii.

    Wii Fit is only the balance board peripheral and the software, it does not include the Wii itself.

    Some store bundle additional games with the Wii, which can bump the price up.

    There is only one model of the Wii, packaged with Wii Sports.

    Also, you are paying 10 dollars too much for that bundle.

    The Wii is $250.
    Wii fit is $90.

    250+90=340.
