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