I've been looking for one of these for awhile now and the last time I saw one at a store I was in the vicinity but by the time I got there all of them were gone…it's just so amazing how anything related to the Wii sells out so quickly! I've heard about entire pallets of the system selling out in less than 10 minutes which is astounding and a little scary too! :O It looks like Japan has had the Wii Fitness for awhile but now the U.S. finally has its version! While Playstation and XBox are great systems too (although I just heard that there's something referred to as "the rings of death" involving the XBox and when these appear your system has played its last game….well until you send it in for servicing or replacement….really discouraging and I don't think I'd want one of those!) Nintendo has really struck gold with the Wii!! The person who invented it must be having the time of his/her life right now with the sales it generates and the amazing speed that it produces them at!! If I wanted to buy a Playstation 3 or XBox 360 I'd have no problem finding a console but no such luck when it comes to the Wii….it's almost baffling that a manufacturer can't seem to keep up with the demand.
So now I shall embark on balance games, yoga, aerobics, and strength training…but most of all I'm looking forward to playing the games which were seen on HM@ episode 12/2/07 and the week there after! Maybe I should create a Gakisan Mii too just because it looked so much like her younger self in a strange way and well it was cute too! And while I think I feel centered and balanced I know that the system will tell me otherwise as it's just a matter of how unbalance I really am….hmm do I really want to know?! 😛 I heard that you can unlock additional games as you go along passing the fitness tests so I'm looking forward to every thing the Wii Fit has to offer…..Ah! I was finally in the right place at the right time to get one! ^-^
