Nintendo wants to take away yet another reason not to exercise—announcing that they will soon release Wii Fit in the United States.
Currently the exercise program has a weight limit of 300 pounds. Has anyone from Nintendo actually visited the U.S.? It’s possible that they are targeting gamers on the slender side; after all, you never see any big boys (or girls) in the Wii commercials. Otherwise, they might want to think about an upgrade before the Q2 release.
Wii Fit uses a balance board to engage the player in 40 different activities, which includes yoga, push-ups, and other exercises.
