Nintendo Hopes Its ‘Wii Fit’ Works Out – WSJ.com
Nintendo’s Wii gaming console introduced sedentary gamers to the idea of moving off the couch. Now Nintendo is coming out with the Wii Fit, an add-on to the gaming system designed to appeal to women looking to lose weight.
The $90 attachment, dubbed the “Balance Board,” expands the range of
games that can be played on the Wii to include activities such as yoga
and push-ups. The Balance Board — which resembles bathroom scales —
also tracks a user’s weight and body-mass index.
