    Clearly a ripoff by nintendo. No one wants this, they're being suckered in... it's all a scam...


    That being said(as sarcastically as it was), I have no interest in this game. I might check it out if a friend buys it.

    ha, I've already stated my opinion on these stupid fitness video games.

    And more importantly, let kids be kids not influence them by a BMI (which is a joke of a way to tell if someone is overweight) telling them they are obese.

    I don't think kids would buy the game specifically for the BMI. Stupid lazy adults maybe, but not kids. Kids would buy it to snowboard or hula hoop or something.

    Well whatever, point is, anyone who uses it strictly for fitness is selling themselves short. The name implies fitness when it probably shouldn't.

    But the point isn't strictly for fitness. It's Wii fitness. It's there for entertainment, with a side benefit of exercise. If it isn't entertaining it will fall flat. If they've made it entertaining, it could be huge.

    Once again, just from videos, it doesn't look very entertaining to me. But time will tell.

    the BMI indicator ha come under scrutiny because i does not take into consideration muscle content (which is heavy like fat), a better factor for measurement would be % of body fat

    However unknowing (or lazy) parents stuck on this obese bull will see FIT and go 'OMG my boy will be thin again'.

    So really, blame the stupidity of the consumer, not the pusher...
