Locked: WiiFit...Fad?

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - WiiFit...Fad?

I'd say it was a fad in the sense that people are buying it based on hype and most people won't play it for that long.
It's certainly not one of those games you will be nostalgic about in a few years time.

No one can argue that its not selling, however.

Doesnt interest me and tbh im slightly baffled why others are. I had a look at some information about the game...all the activities within it appear to be fairly simple things which dont look very "fun" and wouldnt help someone lose weight or build muscle outside those with severe problems. most of the exercises can be done without its board. bmi is notoriously unreliable. yet people flock to this thing...

Have people just been got up in hype? Will the success last or fade away shortly? (if you own it, please state so before answering questions)

 


 Wii Fit has sold more copies in Japan than PS3, is PS3 a fad in Japan?



How many cups of darkness have I drank over the years? Even I don't know...

 something needs to be popular before it can be a fad

So the Xbox 360 is a fad for being the top selling console in America.



I clicked in to get some LAWLS. You guys disappointed me with your sarcasm.

The Wii and Wii Fit are both gimmicky fads created by Nintendo to take our money again. You would think they would've learned after that purple lunchbox called the Gamecube flopped. Now they're just getting desperate.

At this rate, the Wii is gonna end up like my Furby, rotting in the garage. Maybe they should find stronger duct tape and put 2 N64s together instead of the scotch tape they used to put those 2 SNESs together. Any game I make could sell 3.5 million with all these stupid casuals around. I could go MacGyver and put some paper clips together that could produce more graphics that the Wii ever could.......

Yes indeed it is.RROD says hello.=)

i probably should have specified in non japanese markets....as i rarely understand why the japanese do anything so cant even begin to determine what might be in japan.

Also at what time frame does something stop being fad ?
