Is anyone excited about the imminent launch of Wii Fit

    With Wii Fit scheduled for release in the UK on April 25 and in the US on May 19 is anyone excited to get their hands on one? Maybe even pre-ordered? And what do you think of the whole Wii Fit concept?

    Personally I think it's a great idea but I'm more interested in the Wii Balance Board that's bundled with Wii Fit. If Wii Fit takes off I think we can expect a load of exciting new games that will take advantage of the Wii Board. I will certainly be keeping an eye on developments and updating my Wii Balance Board hub with news if anyone is interested.

      I have to agree with you, Sofasurfer... I too am more excited about the prospects of the Wii Board that comes along with Wii Fit!

      I was watching a video on how the Wii Board changes the whole experience of one of the current games out there called "We Ski" that wasn't getting the greatest reviews as a single game.  From what I saw in the video, it appears that the board really kicks things up a notch with regard to that game!  It made it look really fun! smile

    Obviously not a lot of interest here.

    But my son brought home a brochure about it, and is campaigning strongly :-)

    I'm interested. Of course, I just want to have a Wii...then I'll think about Wii Fit smile

    Yes, my daughter mentioned it tonight.  She's using the Mom-factor due to the Wi Fit part to convince me to get one.  Good strategy!

    Unfortunately We Ski is not the best example of a Wii Balance Board game. I think the developers, Namco Bandai, were more interested in getting it out the door and being the first third-party game to include Wii board support. Right now, EA Skate It looks like the best candidate as a Wii board worthy game although there's still no definite release date for it yet.

    I'm not particularly excited, myself...my youngest son and my husband are, though.  My husband pre-ordered it and hasn't gotten around to picking it up yet, and my youngest son is practically going nuts waiting for it.

    Hmmmmm...do I see a clean room in his immediate future?  I just might -- if he wants his WiiFit.

    Whilst I'm happy with my PS3 the wii is always the console you go round to a friends house and play something like bowling and you go away thinking "damn, I really want one of them"  If I had the wii I'd probably try out the wii fit thing, although I can't remember which site it was but a video games/tech blogger was going to actually see how much weight he lost by using wii fit alone, no other exercise.

    That'd be an interesting experiment, think it was either Engadget, Gizmodo or Joystiq...can't remember
