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)
I'm not sure if your post is a "joke" post or not, but here goes:
1/ Its the best (only?) digital weight tracking system ever created, that is easily available to the public.
2/ Its innovative, in that whereas there have been "pressure" controllers before - there has never really been a "balance" controller before.
3/ It appeals to non-gamers, more so than ever WiiSports does.
4/ It DOES help lose weight AND build muscle. You are simply wrong in your comments. How so? Well, we could start a new thread based on this alone:
- its more convenient than going to the gym, less time wasting and a lot cheaper
- the user gets '1-1' feedback, rather than just being a single person in a workout class of 20 people
- by adding "game-ness" & "fun" to exercise, it encourages gamers to use it. This I think is the core element of it. Its intentionally part-game & part-exercise. If it was all-exercise, it would be a chore - rather than fun. If it was all-game, it wouldn't be different from anything else.
- the muscle exercises in the game are HARD, and DEFINITELY help build muscle. I have slowly been getting into them, because they actually intimidate me :P
More than anything else, the game helps with awareness - of diet, exercise, posture, balance (etc). I have found my habits are already changing thanks to WiiFit.
Will buying WiiFit turn you into a muscle man, or fitness junkie? No.
Wii buying (and using) WiiFit improve your fitness or health? If used regularly, almost definitely.
