    is there a plce to buy th balance board on its own without wii fit?
    i couldnt find any so im guessing probably not...
    and do you think nintendo will ever release it separatly? (maybe to replace broken boards etc...)

    YES shop01media has a couple of variants in link
    about £44

    they also do a variant with a digital display in .

    but works out about the same as a new retail one!

    the first one is not bad if you don't have one already or need a second one for 2 player board play [​IMG]

    OP is in the UK although they are cheap from that link its the postage to the UK thats the killer and fit boards are not light!

    edit @nicky041192 they are OEM but work just as good ...any problems from shop01 you can return for refund or exchange they have very good customer service ... (I'm not just saying that because I have recently reviewed stuff for them .... they genuinely do have good customer support you can even email them out of hours and get a response [​IMG] )

    of course it will [​IMG]

    Any OEM hardware works just as it should with the real legit game!

    If your not happy you can return it and get a refund they are good like that [​IMG]

    You can/could always ask them here and include a valid email address so they can respond [​IMG]

    Yeah good call. If he had a friend in TN, US to ship it cheap, it's a good place to buy stuff from.

    The game is essentially worth nothing, they chuck it in for free with the board.

    Just like Wii Sports and the console.

    The Wii can only support ONE Balance Board.
    It is a hardware limitation and cannot change.
