North America Gets 'WiiFit' Screens, Europe Gets a Release Date

wiifit

Ok, I admit that I laughed at WiiFit when it was revealed during E3 2007 and I also admit that I made fun of it when new screens were sent to us in August. While I am still on the fence about it, I have indeed warmed up to the idea of actually putting my Wii to good use because to be honest with you, the only time it has been touched since before Christmas is when I clean the house twice a week. So, instead of just looking at my pretty Wii and vacuuming the dog hair off of it I am actually going to purchase WiiFit when it hits our shores – which is rumored to be May 19th. I will let you know if it really works or not, hell, I will even give you before and after measurements if I absolutely have to but don’t expect a before and after picture to go along with it. Also, do not expect me to provide any sort of picture of me attempting to do “tree pose” like the screenshot above. I have fallen many times trying to do it – my balance is non-existent.

Europeans looking forward to the WiiFit can expect it to grace their lovely land on April 25th and if it sells half as well over there as it did in Japan (1.5 million units) it will be deemed as a huge hit. Let’s see though, how the “Fat Americans” (as the world likes to call us) take to it – I bet you will see it used on “The Real Housewives of Orange County” within three months of release. God, what a deplorable show.

The sad thing is, I know that “game” is going to be in my home cause my girlfriend is always looking for games that promote fitness. *sigh*

I am going to try it out, and trust me when I say that I am no fitness buff. If I were, I would learn how to cook like someone other than a proper “Southern” woman.

Southern + Cooking = Biscuits and Gravy, Fried Chicken, Green Beans with bacon and Sweet Iced Tea to wash it down with. :lol:

@Steph: Will you marry me?! :shock:

I think it was the green beans with bacon that got me. If you can wrap bacon around a vegetable, you’re marriage worthy in my book :grin:

@ Daniel – to clarify, its crumbled bacon. Sorry for the confusion. :lol:

@ ManOfTeal – I’ll show you mine if you show me yours :wink:

Daniel, I was going to ask Stephany the same thing. Unfortunately that’s not legal in my state and I haven’t switched teams.

I don’t know if us fat Americans will take to this. If we were up for things like this we wouldn’t be so fat. I personally am huge, and not skinny girl thinking she huge…lol. So if it’s safe for me to use it, meaning I make the weight requirement I might give it a try.

Sweet!!!! I want this! And I understand about the tree pose as I’ve tried it with a martini in hand and spilled 90% of it on my cat… I’m kidding here guys. Anyway, as one of the Real Housewives myself, I can say that I’d love this on the show next season. GREAT IDEA!

@ Stephany The boys keep me down in the basement answering user questions. Once in a while I sneak out when they take their lunch and have a little fun. Last week I let the hamster off his wheel and the site went down for a few minutes. They caught us and they took away my ball and cup. Man I almost got that ball in the cup. Damn them for taking it from me!
