    Well, remember 3DS's rough start? Now Everybody wants one for all the new games. Same Thing will happen for the WiiU. SSB4, New Zelda, New Mario Galaxy etc,

    Yep. First party titles will obviously skyrocket U sales in due time. Not that I imagine said sales will ever match the Wii's.

    srsly. I'm legitimately curious what group of consumers keeps the Wii's sales this high.

    Funny how wii U started out exactly like 3Ds. First the got a Zelda remake and New mario game, they are both then loaded with 3rd part games, then they both get a new Smash Bros. game. I imagine they'll turn out pretty similar.

    If people wanted Wii fit they still have their much less expensive Wii. Wii Fit only sold well before because it was new and different.

    now you are showing your ignorance...

    wiiU has sold 4Million in 8 months... it will pass the psvita(5.5M) this holiday in sales.

    wiifit U will show people that nintendo is still the best when it comes to exercising while playing games.

    This would be only the third Wii Fit game sold so far. Wii Fit U likely won't do as well this time around.
    1. Much less people bought WiiUs than Wiis
    2.Wii Fit was a fad. Fitness in a video game was it's wow factor. Now it's already out there and only people who really[/] want it will buy it.
    3. There isn't much you can improve for a fitness game. Except add more exercises.

    i know it wont sell as much but as long as it sells 1 Million or maybe even much more then it is a success and will move wiiU systems. this will build momentum just like the damn 3DS did. people will start buying like crazy.

    1- yes it will sell less but at least 1 Million or more after a month of release..more if it catches fire.
    2. exercise isn't a fad.
    3. lets see what nintendo come up with. they invented this market i am sure they will make wiiFit U the best fitness game available.

    Exersise isn't a fad, exercise games are. You can workout without a game.
    Now you're showing you're a fanboy/girl. Saying it will sell because you believe Nintendo will do it well.

    people love to exercise and im sure many would like to find new ways of adding to their routine...or new ways to make exercising fun for them or their family.
    some kids hate to exercise and wiiFit could make them say. OK mom ill do it if you buy me this.

    i am not sure how these things go..lol

    thats just a possible scenerio.

    That's my point, that isn't the way it goes because kids aren't fooled like that. They want real games and exrecise "games" won't sway them. I don't see how it's fun either. Wii Fit is only really a virtual trainer. Everything else can be found online.

    Again, I don't say "this is true for everyone". You can't put words in my mouth, that's not how this world works.

    Wii Fit sold well 'cause fitness games instantaneously became a part of the digital age, and the Wii was the only thing offerin' such an experience. That, and accessibility; just like every other smash hit Wii game with "Wii" in the name.

    Incorrect. Exercise games are a portal to digitally-managed workout regiments and fully-functioning AI personal trainers, or some other futuristic bullshit like that. They aren't a fad so much as a first step towards somethin' else.

    You're not considerin' the target audience Wii Fit (U) targets. These're the people who ain't fitness nuts or are completely outta their element when tryin' to enter the world of fitness. These're the consumers that aren't easily motivated t' runs oh-so boring laps daily. People who go to gyms don't use Wii Fit; whereas the people who don't are the target.

    And yes, that target audience is much bigger than ya think considerin' Wii Fit moved far more copies than actual games like Super Mario Galaxy.
