Where is the official Wii-Fit thread?

This is the 3rd time this week of a thread of a sellout. Why not make an official thread?

OT:

Good for Wii Fit, it will have an awesome first week.

I'll start posting in the Wii Fit thread if you promise to whine every time a MGS4 thread is created.


I will

Ebay?

Supply shortages suck.



Hi there.

Bah....Wii Fit sales are meaningless. The game is just another Pack in like Wii Play or Wii Sports. People are only buying it for the Balance Board.

I can't wait to see DMC 5 using the balance board.

Now all you need to do to fire the gun is tap dance but melee fighting needs to be more like a slow waltz.



Irons guys not video games!

I'm not sure if you're being serious or not, but some people have made this statement in total seriousness.

I find it hilarious. Prior to this gen, having an expensive peripheral included with a game was considered a major disadvantage. Of course Guitar Hero broke that trend. But now people are claiming that Wii Fit has an advantage because it includes a limited use peripheral which knocks the price up $40.

Just another example how the old industry is being turned upside down.

 

And btw... Just because Wii Fit launches huge doesn't mean it won't have legs. It will still have long tail sales just like the Brain Training or Nintendogs games, but at a much higher volume. I believe that Nintendo is actively planning to sell 30-40 million Wii Fits, just like they fully intended to sell 10M copies of each Brain Training game. They are going to have a high volume launch, and unprecedented high volume long tail sales.

They could, for example, sell 1M units in America this December.

"The way to solve this problem lies in how to communicate what kind of games [they CAN play]."

Satoru Iwata, Nintendo President. Only slightly paraphrased.

This thing is gonna have legs like Stacy Keibler.

NO NO, NO NO NO.

i don't get how sales in Others is even falling. I have yet to see an available copy of Wii fit and i have been to stores in 4 different countries in the last two weeks (not for the game though). I did not really even want the game, but not being able to even find it is making me increasingly curious.

Simple. They stockpiled for launch week and now they're selling as much as they can produce.

Bet with OriGin: Within 1 year Super Smash Bros. Brawl will be ahead of Mario Kart Wii (when aligning the one whole year from each region). 2 week ban from Vgchartz for the loser. Edit: Darn! Looks like OriGin will win.

Nah, Mariah Carey.  They're insured for 1 million bucks.
