We, at DietsInReview.com, were one of the first in line at our local Best Buy to pick up the new Wii Fit this morning. After a few hours with the new exercise game we have put together a short video overview of the product.
But before I show you the video I want to point out a few things.
- The line was at least 30 people long at 9:30 am, each person buying multiple Wii Fit accessories along with the game. It appears that Nintendo has spawned a new fitness game industry on day one.
- The balance board appears to well made – very solid.
- In line we heard chatter about more games and exercise tools coming out that will also make use the Wii’s balance board.
- We have 4 friends over right now all playing (exercising?) with the Wii Fit. When is the last time you had your friends over to exercise
I was very impressed with the packaging and the quality of the materials. The balance board also comes with a set of replacement feet, I guess they wear out easily? Below is our video overview showcasing a few of the games as well as documenting some of the setup procedures.
