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.

@kofikingston Here are some funny videos lol.

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!

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
