Big surprise there. I don't know anyone that buys fitness dvds anymore but quite a few friends of mine in 2010 alone bought a Wii just for Wii Sports and Wii Fit.

Well they need to be careful when playing wii sports the other day i was playing mine and i forgot the little strap that goes on the end and my remote slipped and almost broke my tv luckily it just knocked the wii sensor bar off.

LOL I haven't heard that one happen in a looong time! I remember when Wii came out and these accidents were happening my friends and i thought those people were retarded. And sure enough one of my friends "almost" chucked his Remote at the ceiling while bowling. Luckily the strap was on or I'd be out a controller probably.

Sucks for the people that broke their TV's!

"Wii Fit and Wii Fit Plus combined have outsold any single workout DVD"

Is it just me or does that not sound very impressive?

Wii fit is a joke...
What they don't tell you, is how many get sold/traded within days/weeks of purchase, because having to stay on the board is so restrictive. I'm over 6 ft tall, and wear a size 12-1/2 shoe...it's next to impossible for me to stay balanced on the "balance board" for most exercises. Beware of peripherals designed by tiny Japanese people...they use their own bodies as a reference. :o
