No More Excuses: Wii Fit to Launch in May

Finally, finally we exercise-deprived Americans have a solid date, as Nintendo announced today at the Game Developers Conference that the Wii Fit will release on May 19th in the United States.

Wii Fit demonstrates Nintendo's commitment to gamers of all kinds. It combines fun and fitness for every member of the family to keep active and play together. Wii Fit launches May 19 in the United States and comes with the weight-and-motion-sensing Wii Balance Board that Nintendo representatives demonstrated could hold great promise for future game development as well. Third-party publishers are already working on new games and applications that will make use of the Wii Balance Board. Additionally, Wii Fit includes access to the Wii Fit Channel, an interactive channel that lets users check in each day to track their fitness progress through weight and BMI. In Japan, Wii Fit has sold more than 1.4 million units since its Dec. 1 launch.

1.4 million Japanese citizens losing weight while we sit here obese?  Bring it on!

 Hi All,

The Wii is a lot of fun. My Fiance has one, & when a bunch of us get together we are able to play all sorts of games without the Ladies getting mad at the Guys.

No kidding; something wrong when you want to get into shaping by using a video game. I say hit the gym fatty HAHAHA

The tech demo  for GW2 looks quite sweet however I'll wait for a PC version, if there'll be one, since I don't have a 360 let alone and console system.

I think its not a terrible idea as a lot of the younger generations are doing very little -- hence why we're the most obese nation (U.S.) in the world! Why not take the console these kids sit on for hours on end....and make 'em lose a pound or two? Nothing wrong with that

Or have them run on a treadmill while they are playing games LOL

Its hard to believe anyone can loose any sort of weight with the Wii Fit.
