Anyone get Wiifit? Thoughts on it? - Page 2

post #11 of 23
In the Uk it's ~£70. So thanks but no thanks.

It's something I considered buying for novelty factor, but was put off by the price (and the fact it sold out). I'm sure its fun for kids, but the main reason I came so close to blowing £70 on this was my girlfriend. Yes, if it wasn't obvious already, it's one of a few 'games' girls seem to like (She likes The Sims and Wii Play as well incidentally).

That said, Would be cool to mess around with, like the 5 days I did Wii Sports fitness test every day.

Why should grown people have to use video tapes or cds to lose weight? Atleast this is a little better. If you can play a videogame and it be good for you at the same time, why not. It's better than watching those stupid, cheesy weight loss videos lol.

Wiifit is not a game. It's a gimmicky marketing tactic for fatties and teenagers.

I got a Wii Fit and I actually enjoy it a lot. The mini games that they have are pretty fun, and the exercises are decent. Nothing replaces going outside and kicking a ball around or going for a run, but this does do a good job to give you things to do, and the yoga poses are interesting to help you stretch and improve your flexibility and posture.

I played DDR for 2 years with the specific goal of losing weight. It worked wonders, around an hour or two of cardio a day WILL help you lose weight, And when you do it with a visual goal or a points goal it keeps you coming back for more. I dont know how wii fit works but if it has a point system then people will play it and reap the benefits.

Well some people just don't have the time in the day to do an actual workout routine, let's say a mother/father is watching the kids and they can't go out to exercise, they pull out the WiiFit and get a mini workout in. The WiiFit should never be used a primary resource fore exercise.

man, you guys must have been drinking hatorade for breakfast.

anyways, the wiifit as a weight loss tool is a gimmick, but these days you are lucky if you can get a gamer to get out of his/her chair so every little bit counts. i dont see it as an exercise tool, but as an accessory that has a lot of potential.

im waiting for about 5-10 good games to come out that utilizes the board before i drop the money on a wiifit. in the meantime, i'll be enjoying Mario Kart online and my 360
