    Hits milestone in just over a month on sale

    Nintendo's Wii Fit exercise package has sold one million units in Japan, in just over a month on sale.

    According to Nikkei, the hardware and software bundle reached the milestone on January 6, after being introduced to the market on December 1.

    Wii Fit was first unveiled by Shigeru Miyamoto at E3 last year, and represents Nintendo's continued push to expand the industry beyond the traditional videogame market.

    The package consists of the Wii Balance Board peripheral and software that simulates an exercise workout, using more than 40 types of training activities, as well as keeping track of a users BMI and other stats on a new Wii Channel.

    Don't ever say that again without a warning first!

    Currently the release date is TBA.
    I say we get it some time in or after the summer.

    As for the numbers, can't say I am surprised.
    Wii Fit has really caught the eye of most people and many are wanting to play it, while some are completely hating it. Me personally, I think it looks good and I will end up picking it up sometime soon (hopefully the release date isn't too far away).

    Do what outside?, you never said that in your post. Try narrowing it down a little, as Wii Fit has a bunch of games in it.
    Also some things you can't do outside, like box..walk a tightrope? (Unless of course your in the circus)

    Main thing with this is when "working out" you have nice things to look out, and overall its more fun when moving around etc. Thats what its trying to do, and thats why it appeals to some people.

    I guess thats why the US is probably the [STRIKE]fattest[/STRIKE] most obese country in the world.

    Cool on the one million copies. For one country, that's excellent (as far as I know).

    Well, people sadly attempt to be politically correct and include us into the fray.

    Just to further my point about google, and everyones opinion on Americans, I searched on google images for "average americans". Notice how all images on the first page, relate to food, have fat people, sexy posters or money.

    People get shot out side, that not healthy at all. Fat people are every where! So it's all good. Plus too it's a cool toy to play with and get in shape with. It tracks every thing. Too bad it's doesn't track pyramid work outs as I'm wondering how much weaker I am now they I do lots of studio work.

    People love this stuff though! skinny people have a lot of energy too!
