    I felt it was rather obvious that its not actually a type of exercise... your just sitting on a plastic board. =P

    WHAT!? Next you are going to tell me that Guitar Hero won't make me a real guitar player. hahaha :lol:




    It's much like the "workout" mode on DDR. I never expected to get "fit" or actually lose weight with Wii Fit, but I AM looking forward to it as a game.

    The author's sarcasm in the last paragraph is neither funny nor intelligent.

    Thats all I've got to say.

    Well yeah, no surprise there.
    It still a fun way to get involved in games, sure you may shed a pound or two. The board is getting set up for use with other games really.

    But yeah, its done well in Japan, it will probably do double what Japan sold.

    They should have called it "Wii Stop-your-bitching-it's-only-a-game"

    Why the hell does everyone take games so seriously! Of course it isn't going to make you fit!

    That's like saying Rayman Ravin' Rabbids is going to cause you to go out and incite genocide on bunnies.

    EDIT: Speaking of which:

    The fact that Wii Fit will get us off our @ss while playing justifies that it's a healthier game to play then say... Gears of War. YOU WILL lose calories with Wii Fit(duh!) but what Miyamoto means is that it's no replacement for jogging or the Jenny Craig program(duh! again).

    Wii Fit has YOGA!!:smilewinkgrin:

    Since the Wii doesn't know your age(duh! again) it's obviously a complement. 21 is the age you want to reach. 23 is pretty damn good:yesnod:

    I agree. That pretty much sums up what Miyamoto meant. Yes Wii Fit will burn more calories than simply twitching your thumb on a TV remote. But it definately isn't an alternative to jogging.

    I like the Yoga idea. I'm all for it!! Mainly because I can't see my young Mexican self striking poses in a yoga studio with a group of older free spirited cacausians:lol:
