Thank you for giving me something other to watch than the University of Hawaii embarassing themselves on national TV. :p

So how much does it retail for in the mother country? There's a thread saying it's $190?

Just wear a wig for your next vid and they'll leave you alone. Or get boobs.

Hope you lose some weight with this thing.... not that you need to...but might as well lose some before you got tired of it. :)

CheapyD - check out this Insanely priced "WiiFit from Japan"

Man, if that actually sells, you may want to think about flipping some of those.

Wow, it's already out!? (I know... Japan, but that seemed fast for it to come out there as well.)

I'm a little disappointed you didn't give a demonstration Cheapy, you should of set it up.

Yeah, great job Cheapy...you unboxed a gigantic white plastic mousepad :D

Here's what I don't get: The Japanese are some of the healthiest and longest-lived human beings on earth.....why did they make this?

Leave it to Nintendo to come up with stuff like this. I'm anxiously awaiting Wii Jumprope.

Sweet Video Cheapy D! Now lets see some video of you demonstrating the balance board w/ wii Fit, that would be great!

Also, TMNT Truck FTW!

Looks like a cheaply made TV dinner tray. Box art is pretty bland, nothing more boring then a white product on a white background. Wonder if Nintendo will add a little color for the export versions.

Surprised there is no humorous do not use while drunk warning. Actualy surprised there was no "do not use on carpet" warning either.

Wii fit games, give it some time. It's only been out a day. I'm interested how it feels, plus exercise can't be a bad.

5 games out of how many shovel ware games? I wouldn't count Brain Age 2 out of your list as great... but anyways, 4 out of 5 of those games feature characters that are like 20 years old. How about something new. Nintendo, how about you start making games like you did back in the day (QUALITY) and make new characters like you did before. Stop this 'casual' mini-game crap with OMG new add-on or waggle shit.

This is what sells, dude. Nintendo is entering a second golden age, and it's because of all this weird stuff they've been doing.

I, for one, am excited for this to come out here; onto the band-wagon with me.

And to the person who wondered why this is being released in Japan, one of the "healthiest" demographics, they're healthy because they don't sit on their asses playing Halo 3; they're healthy because they're into stuff like this. They're pretty active, healthy-eating people, and using something like this would be part of keeping active (where-as here it's more of a "lose weight!" kind of thing).

The digg commentators? Or the YouTube ones? YouTube is like brain death. :( The comments are always one big circle jerk. I adore these vids, though, some I'm glad CheapyD keeps posting them!

It's a glorified Pump It Up and DDR game, with exercises. I can't wait til some fat asses break the board or get injured and try to sue Nintendo. Just because they can pwn this shit off on people doesn't mean it is good for them long term. Keep it up with this stuff and pretty soon gamers will leave. Casual games don't keep any company alive. There will be marks for a system regardless. Bless them.
