Now Wii can all be fit!

The Wii Fit has been released in Japan and will hopefully be released in the Middle East in coming months. Nintendo, as I mentioned in an earlier post, is pretty brilliant when it comes to adapting games for practical purposes. Now with the Wii Fit, gamers can develop core body strength, flexibility and aerobic capacity in their own home and have a good time while doing it. The reason I think this is relevant is because in the Middle East, where gaming is very popular, people are gaining weight and acquiring type 2 diabetes at phenomenal rates. The Wii makes you move, is fun for all ages and can be played in your living room. All we need now is for Ninetendo to invent a game that teaches you to eat healthy…

There is a good review of the device at this blog:
