If this is a sign of things to come, then North Americans wanting to purchase the Wii Fit may want to pre-order it.

Play.com, a popular online store over in the UK sold out if its entire stock of Wii Fit in just one day. All sales were pre-orders as the hotly anticipated Nintendo creation is not scheduled to be released in the UK until April 25th. The ensuing pre-order demand overwhelmed the online retailer, and Gian Luzo, the head of games at the online store has thsi to say regarding the surge:

“People continually look for new and fun ways to stay in shape and it’s fantastic to see exergames in big demand. Wii Fit is going to be huge and let’s hope that we can keep up with demand. We are expecting more stock before launch.”

So UK gamers who did not get in on the pre-order feeding frenzy can take heart that they will get another chance very soon . If the sales of the Wii Fit in Japan (1 million sold in a month) are any indication of its expected popularity, some of you may miss out if you don’t take advantage of this the next time pre-order becomes available.
