  • EA sets sights on Wii Fit fans with EA Sports Active

    Looks like EA Sports is getting into the Wii-based fitness arena with EA Sports Active. It’ll be launching next spring, right about the time you grab hold of your ever-lingering holiday gut with both hands, look skyward, and scream "Whaaaeeeyyyyy?" While somewhat similar to Wii Fit, EA Sports Active will eschew a balance board-type apparatus in favor of "two… Read More

    Target is selling the Nintendo Wii console along with Wii Fit, balance board, and carrying case for $349.99 (online only, free shipping).

  • EA plans to take on the Wii Fit with their own peripherals?

    The difference between a casual gamer and hardcore gamer seems to be one big grey area these days. The terminology doesn’t exactly convey the same message it used to, but that’s an argument/post for a later time. We all know the Wii epitomizes casual gaming and it looks like EA wants to change that with a slight variation to the Wii Fit. It won’t make it hardcore, but you… Read More

  • Be a recluse: Walk around your town with Wii Fit

    Everyone loves a good Wii Fit hack. This guy hooked up his Wii Fit to Google’s street view so he could walk around town. It’s kind of neat idea, but I really don’t know how fun it is to march in place. I rather just sit in my chair and click a mouse. via Makezine Blog Read More

  • Wii Fit seemingly blamed for £20.1 million worth of damage in the UK, don’t believe the hype

    I’m going to refrain from sensationalizing this story too much, as the UK’s Daily Telegraph is reporting that women that work out in their living rooms have caused over £20 million worth of damage to their homes in the past year in a post titled Wii Fit women leave £20 million toll of destruction to living rooms. That total is derived from in-home destruction over the past year… Read More

  • Meet the girl from the Wii Fit video

    Remember the girl in the “why you should buy your girlfriend a Wii Fit” video? Turns out her name is Lauren Bernat, she’s 25, and she was super pissed at her boyfriend (sorry, fellas) for posting the video on YouTube. Now, of course, she’s something of a micro-celebrity, enjoying the 15 minutes of fame that only a perfect ass like that can generate. The Mail caught up… Read More

  • 10 things better than Wii Fit

    Our favorite former CrunchGearer, VV, now works for GearFuse and put together this semi-excellent video of things to do instead of looking like a moron on the Wii Fit. Warning! There’s some salty language in there. Oh, those kids. Read More

  • Nintendo hates America, loves Europe and money more


    Image courtesy of Kotaku. It’s no secret that Nintendo loves to play the ‘we never anticipated this much demand, so we’re fresh out of stock’ bull honky, so it really shouldn’t come as a surprise that the Wii Fit is sold out across the country. Nintendo is playing it smart here in the US. We all want what we can’t have, though that argument could be said… Read More
