Another review, just to build up a writing style in my head ready for some more reviews to come. Tell me what you think! Thanks
[size=medium]Wii, every little helps?[/size]
Nintendo Wii is fast becoming a games console and calorie burner all in one, with WiiFitness coming out, some apparent Wii Weights to help burn those calories and the already popular WiiSports keeping kids 40%* healthier than they are just sitting and playing games, it looks as if Wii has a big upperhand on their rivals yet.
Now we've all sweated a few drops on WiiSports boxing, and even got the good old Bowling shoulder, but wait there thats not the end of it, nintendo aims to make us sweat more, and have decided to build on the popularity of WiiSports to make you feel the burn for longer, with the releases of WiiFitness and the WiiFitness Board.
Reggie Fil-Aime (President of Nintendo America) was quoted as saying this about the new game and board:
ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œOur objective with Wii Fit is all about expanding the audience and taking advantage of what our consumers are already doing with Wii Sports, theyÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢re using it to workout and lose weight this [Wii Fit] just drives it in a whole new wayÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â
With obesity becoming a growing problem in the UK, Wii can only be a helpful tool in the battle, , and with kids burning calories without even realising it, and eating Jamie Oliver's way, who knows, the UK may not be the "most obese" country in europe afterall.
WiiFitness contains over 40 different challenges, from Yoga to Muscle Conditioning where the Wii Fitness board will be used to do challenges such as Ski Jumping to really burn those thighs, Hula Hooping to help lose those love handles playing Playstation gave you, and press ups to build up your button bashing arms, WiiFitness looks to be twice as popular a game as WiiSports is.
Now if only Jamie Oliver could incorporate a "Wii Fitness Diet" into his next cookbook or tv show, then we would all be in for a slimmer 2008.
