Can I leave the gamepad in the cradle whenever it's not in use or is it better to charge it only when the battery is low?
We've had outs sitting on the cradle since day one (launch day) and despite nearly daily use from my son (mostly in Miiverse) it seems to be holding its charge the same as always.
I don't generally advocate for digital games but I would highly recommend the digital for Wii Fit U since you need to synch with the fit meter, and putting in a disc would be really cumbersome when synching every day. This way you just boot up the console and start the game and you can synch right away. If any game is to be bought digital it is this. Besides the fit meter is only $20 if you already have the balance board. Gamestop sells the balance boards cheap if you can't find one elsewhere.
Yeah, like Animal Crossing for the 3DS this seems like a good choice for digital. I have a store pickup order in place for the meter for $9.99 from Fry's. I need to get in there tomorrow to pick it up before they cancel it. I still have time to download and sync to get the game for free, right? It would be nice to get some use out of that balance board. I bought it at the release of Wii Fit and used it for about 2 days .
Edit: Crap, I already might be too late at Fry's. My order says pick up by 12/31/13 or the price is subject to change. It is still $9.99 online but could change by Friday when I can get in there. Maybe I can put another order in. OK, put a second order in, in case they change the price before Friday .
