    The best exercise does not involve a video game.

    Take a break from the freakin' videogames and hit the gym up you nerds. WiiFit? Ugh.

    and yet video games do not involve exercise at all

    this will be a hit

    ok, I get it

    0% approval rating from the quorum
    i guess this is either a love it or hate it concept

    on several sites I visited last night, it's a love it thing

    to each his own I guess

    PS2 had the same concept with the Eyetoy. It's an easy way out. As Kami said, hit the gym, get some sunlight.

    The natural way is the best way.

    it's different
    gives people different stuff to do
    not sure the premise is to replace workouts

    i think you might be trying to make it into more than it is

    yeah yeah yeah
    Xbox had the Yourself Fitness game too

    not the point

    i don't think the market is gym members and weightlifters
    it's target is the same family, party, newcomers thew Wii's been targeting

    there's really not alot of gym-esque segments of this package anyway
    aside from the simple yoga, stepping , pushup, etc.... exercises

    not sure when skiing, soccer headbutting,etc.. became gym programs

    and even if it were .....
    at least it's structured and presented in typical Nintendo style
    it's not like walking into a gym and going ... ok, what to do first / next

    look, I'm not saying this thing is gonna be the next thing in gaming, exercise, life changing events or whatever

    but it does give the family something they can do together without having to leave the house .... whenever they feel like it

    that's going to appeal to some people

    And you think not leaving the house is a good thing?

    What kind of social upbringing is that for a child?

    what are you talking about ?
    you've missed your medication again haven't you ?

    blabbing on about raising children and such
    ridiculous

    but let's not give them something new .... just because it may also be healthy ? what if turns out to be a blast to play ? still not good enough because the kid isn't outside or at a gym ?
    ridiculous
    perhaps it's better to let them sit there FOR HOURS stuffing their little faces with Cheetohs and Mountain Dew ? only moving when they need to go potty

    you're making it out to be something you're going to spend hours at a time with like a Kotor or a Final Fantasy, let me help you, it won't be

    i doubt this gets more than an hour or so in any sitting... and get some blood flow at the same time ? it's a good thing ... especially for a country that needs some trimming

    soooooo close minded
