Posted on April 15, 2008, Chris Wii Fit Gets Priced: MSRP Set at $89.99
Nintendo finally has announced the price of Wii Fit in the US, just over a month away from its May 19 release. $89.99, which is what most guesses had predicted, will be the entrance fee to gain access to the Wii Fit movement. You’ll get both the balance board and game for that price, which is exactly what Guitar Hero III and an accompanying guitar will cost you on Wii and sounds fair, no? (That same amount will also get you a copy of Grand Theft Auto IV and a duffel bag which, by comparison, makes the Wii Fit price seem even more reasonable.)
So, $40 for the balance board which by all accounts is actually a solid peripheral. It seems likely that we’ll see other games released that take advantage of the board in the future, so it seems like a pretty fair investment for Wii owners looking to get active (I’ll take Chris Kohler’s word and say it’s not necessarily going to get you in shape).
Of course, that’s just my opinion. I’ll be picking one up now that I know it won’t be way overpriced; how about you?
