    Nintendo's latest attempt at bringing in the "casual" crowd is coming to the U.S. May 25th. It seems to be doing pretty well in Japan. Anyone here interested in this? I'm curious to try it, but at $90 the price is a bit steep. Although it could be a good excuse to get a bit more exercise in my life.

    I'm mostly curious to see how the balance board is going to work out in the long run. The $90 doesn't seem so bad if the board is used in more games down the line.

    It's unlikely that they would use the balance board for other games. But I know what you mean. It would be REALLY cool. I think it's gonna be around £60 in the UK.
    Not something I'd buy, but it looks good.

    Same. Wii's are fun, but I wouldn't want one. I'd sooner pay for a 360 and get XBOX Live. Unfortunately I'm a bum and am currently completely skint.

    Well, except for about £70 which I keep stashed away in my room for emergencies (parties, drinking, etc). :heh:

    I prefer my 360. I only steal my sisters Wii when I want to play something that isnt really serious.
    X-box live is really good though. It's why I bought the console over the PS3 (and because it was cheaper :lol:).

    Yeah, I've played games on Live at my brothers house. Awesome :)

    Besides, there's more games for the 360 than for the PS3.

    ... Anyway, about Wii Fit (the game, not Wii as a console)...

    Apparently, you can use it weigh your cat!

    it sounds pretty awesome but I doubt that they would use the balance board for any other games, can you think of anything that they could possibly use it for?

    $90 is a bit steep for me.

    It's sort of weird that you can weigh animals with it though, I'd almost rather use a regular scale.

    I suppose this'd be pretty handy in Japan, especially in the kitchen. :lol:

    Or is that in China..? I forget...

    Maybe skate boarding games, or any other games involving balance and/or a board? :cool:

    I definitely will not be buying this game! It is expensive, and it looks pretty dumb.

    It makes more sense to go to the gym or hop on a treadmill. I can't see "Wii Fit" being any fun at all (not like working out is always fun) OR doing much to keep you in shape. It's just a gimmick.
