There's just something about a pressure-sensitive balance board that's turning the Japanese on. Nintendo's Wii Fit
game exercise device
balancercise board has stayed at the top of the Japanese sales chart
for the last four weeks and sold 1,283,000 units since Dec. 1. The device that made gameplay out of a scale reached the million mark
in the middle of last month and looks to keep stepping its way to the top spot for a bit.
With Miyamoto saying Wii Fit isn't just a one trick pony
, there'll hopefully be some software announcements following its US premiere
. We're sure the mainstream media already has its prerequisite old folks home
and "Wii Fit
helping obese children" stories all planned out.
