    I have the option to go grab Wii Fit today, but I'm in a pickle. Broke, and the only way I can get it is to use a trade-in promo and off a few of my original wii games (NiGHTS, Mario Party, Big Brain Academy, RE4)


    Is the game worth losing those originals? Keep in mind the Wii info in my sig...

    I think it's worth every penny I spent on it (Way more than it costs in the US) but I wouldn't trade in any games... just cause I love to collect them! [​IMG]

    But since you have a wiikey, and if you don't collect / mind about the originals... go for it [​IMG] I think it's fun as hell... an my girl is hot when she does the hula hoops [​IMG]

    I'm not out of shape, per-say.....but playing boom blox for a few hours the other day destroyed my throwing arm...so that should be a sign that this could possibly help me out. I've burned more calories through my fingers than anything else in the past......years... [​IMG]

    I was lucky enough to get one via an internet store that actually had it in stock. I would say its well worth the money and loads of activities you can do. Don't forget you can have more than 1 profile saved using a Mii so all your family can exercise and save the results. You can also have a competition to see who gets the best scores.

    I need to disagree with this one, a yoga class alone will set you back $100 for 8 weeks. If you can afford it buy it. Also, it all depends on how often you use it and whether you like to get up and move while playing a video game. I have used it for 2 hours since I got it yesterday and I think its worth every penny... and no I don't work for Nintendo.

    Just my 2p guys !

    I borrowed Wii Fit from a friend of mine and have to say that it was fun to start with ... but not worth the £70 (UK RRP)

    If it was say £50 (or if you can find it this cheap somewhere) then I would buy it.

    My take on this is Yes a Yoga class could cost £40 per term but at least you have an expert to tell you where you're going wrong and to give you one on one advice. and as for the other stuff ... I can go jogging outside, push-ups and sit-ups in my front room and bench press the wife if i want to get fit !

    You could also play your DS while on a cycle machine ! If you have to game
