Its not about you or me it’s about Wii it’s time to get Wiifit
Wii Fit is the new video game fitness phenomenon for Nintendo.
Wii is something between gaming and self-improvement but you shouldn’t cancel the gym membership just yet.But as a well made fitness tool with some entertaining mini-games Wii Fit is hard to beat.WiiFit is easy for anyone to try,game developers are putting the Wii Balance Board to use in other games,such as “We Ski” from Namco Bandai.In it,a player holds the Wii remote and nunchuck as they act as ski poles.“Wii Fit” has sold more than two million units in Japan since its launch late last year,and Nintendo says interest is“strong”in Europe,where it went on sale two months ago.According to the game’s virtual fitness expert,people with an uneven center will unnaturally compensate for the imbalance,causing unnecessary strain and poor posture.
To improve that balance,“Wii Fit” guides your customized Mii character through a series of mini-games,strength-training sessions,aerobics exercises and yoga poses.It’s not hard to burn calories with some of the aerobic exercises,especially the hula-hoop spin.The idea is to swivel your hips and keep your character spinning and you can accelerate your scoring pace by continuing to spin while catching more hoops.
There is massive shortage of WiiFit in the States! The reason behind this, industry analyst Michael Pachter says,is because Nintendo is shipping four times as many units of WiiFit to Europe compared to North America. He estimated 2 million units being shipped to N-Europe’s home region because that’s where the money is.“The shortage demonstrates one consequence of the weak dollar. We’re seeing companies ignore their largest market simply because they can make a greater profit elsewhere” he told the LA Times. “They know that Americans will be just as fat a few months from now”, he added.
Nintendo Manger Matt Atwood of America’s Public Relations explanation of what the name was really about.“So that’s Wii but now Nintendo needs you, because,it’s really not about you or me. It’s about Wii. And together,Wii will change everything"
The initial hype generated by Nintendo’s motion-controlled console was a phenomenal success,Amazon.co.uk was completely overwhelmed when its entire pre-order allocation was sold within just seven minutes, and Wii’s were flogged on eBay for as much as -FIVE times the retail price.If you have a Wii-videogame,it’s time to get Wiifit.
